Westfield Mall of the Netherlands recently revealed the signature of a major deal with Inditex – the world’s largest fashion retailer – which will see iconic brands Zara, Bershka, Pull&Bear and Stradivarius open flagship stores in the new €570 million development.
Opening in 2020, the major project will be named Westfield Mall of the Netherlands, bringing together the power of a strong local heritage with an international brand, well-known for its flagship destinations. The center will be the first Westfield branded new development to open across our Group’s portfolio.
Westfield Mall of the Netherlands will be located in the Randstad area, the economic heart of the country, which includes four of the nation’s largest cities (Amsterdam, Utrecht, The Hague and Rotterdam).
According to a prepared statement, the area is home to 6.8 million inhabitants (40% of the Dutch population) and welcomes the majority of the nation’s 15 million annual tourists. The center will feature 280 stores, restaurants and leisure outlets, and, like the other flagship centers in our portfolio, offer opportunities beyond traditional retail with unique events and experiences. This marks the beginning of a new era for retail in the Netherlands to meet the evolving desires of consumers.
