Shopping Center Espacio Torrelodones

WestInvest, a German Investment fund, asked the Wortmann office to undertake a technical and commercial feasibility study of the Torrelodones Commercial Centre in the outskirts of Madrid. The project is located in an area which includes a growing residential zone, a major hospital, a casino and green areas.

The project was promoted by the multinational AM Multi Development Corporation Spain SA, the conceptual design by T&T Design, while Broadway Malyan España further developed the project and were responsible for its construction. The commercial centre will has 1.500 parking spaces, a hypermarket of 8.000m2 and 95 outlets distributed over three floors. As well as retailing, the centre offers a range of restaurants, leisure activities and green areas.

Wortmann Bañares assessed the project and made proposals to the design team for strategies for complementing the quality of the architectural plan. The evaluation included a comparative study of the commercial spaces in the area, an analysis of the study of the traffic flow around the commercial centre and an urban study to determine accessibility to the centre. It was recommended that the project should be integrated with the public transport system and sustainability criteria for the administration of water, waste products and the nearby green areas were taken on.

The study was undertaken in conjunction with ArdiTécnica, S.L., who monitored structural work and carried out the legal auditing of the project. As the project consultant, the team participated in the negotiation of the sale transaction, serving as a bridge between the different parties involved on an international scale. The finalization of the sales transaction took place in December 2004; the inauguration is to take place in the autumn of 2006.
