Ceetrus reveals the details of the new Merlata Mall and of the Rescaldina center expansion during Cannes Mapic


Ceetrus will be attending Mapic between November 13-15, at the R7K11 stand, to present its main ongoing projects. This year’s theme, “a new mix between shops and living spaces”, is perfectly aligned with Ceetrus’ principles: creating progressive and sustainable spaces, offering a living experience beyond shopping.

Milan, November 6th 2019 – The retail industry is experiencing a huge evolution, just like consumers’ habits and lifestyle in general. Ceetrus is determined to be a protagonist of this change, continuing the process of modernising its shopping centers’ and taking part in the construction of new living spaces connected with the territory that combine shops, buildings, offices, recreation areas and services.

On the occasion of the 24th edition of Mapic, which will take place in Cannes between November 13-15, Ceetrus, which is going to be at stand R7K11, will introduce the ongoing projects’ key innovations.
In France, for instance, the opening of a large recreation area at the Autoshopping site “Les Promenades de Betigny” in Bretigny sur Orge, or the transformation of the Promenade de Flandres site in Roncq; the new shopping center in Pushkino (Russia), and the renovation of the Obuda center in Hungary.

When it comes to Italy, Ceetrus Italy will introduce a project of expansion for the Rescaldina shopping center, which includes redoubling the gallery’s surface within 2021; and the creation of the newly acquired Merlata Mall, which is going to rise betwwen Milan and Rho, in the area adjacent to Expo – MIND.
The new Merlata Mall will be developed on a 70.000 square meter surface, in the heart of the first urban smart district in Milan, and will be composed of two connected futurist buildings, adjacent to the Uptown residential complex which will be connected to the Expo – MIND area thanks to a pedestrian bridge. The site will offer an experience that goes beyond shopping. It’s going to be a place to have fun in, get together, discover flavours, enjoy events, find inspiration, and play with one’s kids. A place where everybody can belong and satisfy their desires; it’s a forward-looking project that combines innovation, sustainability, and the utmost attention to the human factor. The mall is going to host an emotional food court and a commercial area intertwined with an area completely devoted to free time and recreation, which will offer an original Fresh Market format set next to squares and boulevards to walk in, have fun, and try every kind of different food. The first floor will be mainly focused on fashion, with a premium placement thanks to experiential showrooms, experimental stores and high-end services. The second floor is going to host a new-generation multiplex cinema.

The new pole will not only be a commercial area, but rather the beating heart of the Uptown residential complex, hosting entertainment, art, culture, and services. It’s going to be open to the outdoor area thanks to a fully equipped park intertwined with the residential buildings close by, and it’s going to served both by the underground and the railway network. The site is at the heart of the main developing area of Milan: between the new Stephenson district and MIND, the innovation district located in the former EXPO area, which includes the Human Technopole, the future Università Statale and the new Galeazzi Hospital branch.
The desin of the new Merlata Hall has been entrusted to high-end architecture studio Calliston RTKL, well known for its succesful projects around the world, commissioned by developers, retailers, funds and public authorities. www.callisonrtkl.com
