New Glòries shopping centre opens in Barcelona

· November 9, 2017

Twenty-two years after its original inauguration, the new Glòries shopping centre opened its doors to the public once again last Thursday after a complete renovation and extension, promoted by Unibail-Rodamco and carried out by L35 with contributions from Javier Mariscal and Saguez & Partners.

In addition to the architectural remodelling, the project also led to a major transformation of the urban landscape envisaged by the Plan Cerdà, making the shopping centre into an open commercial axis that is totally integrated into Barcelona's new area of centrality and development. The L35 team in charge of the project say it is “a project of great dimensions and complexity which has used the model of a Mediterranean shopping street and managed to complete the work without completely stopping commercial activity.”
