RibeirãoShopping opens new expansion with 30 unique brands
In December 4th, RibeirãoShopping opens its eighth expansion. This way, Multiplan finished a cycle of investments initiated in 2011, which cost R$ 300 million for the company. The new expansion adds to the shopping 9400 m² of GLA (gross leasable area) and 60 new stores, which 30 of them are unique brands in the city, such as the american Forever 21. With the new area, the project will have 92.000 m² of ABC (commercial gross area ) and 380 stores .
In addition to the expansion works, the shopping passed by a complete internal and external renovation that included landscaping and frontage, beyond the exchange of 100% of the floors and the elevators. "If we compare with the size that the mall had when it opened 33 years ago, we can say that it is four times bigger today", said Felix Diez, RibeirãoShopping’s superintendent.
This is the third expansion made by RibeirãoShopping in a little over than 12 months. Altogether, the mall has won 124 stores, 2.050 parking spaces, an events center with 3,200 m², gym club, VIP space, restaurants and a roof garden with panoramic view. "The 8th expansion marks the end of an important cycle for RibeirãoShopping and becomes it in the most complete enterprise in Ribeirão Preto and one of the biggest and best shopping in Brazil", concludes Felix Diez.
