Orion & Wizink Abandon Their Plans to Build a Macro Shopping Centre in Sevilla

Although the project received the green light in January, the opening of the Lagoh shopping centre in 2019 and the rise of e-commerce have forced a rethink.

Sketch of the Sevilla Park project

The impact of the coronavirus pandemic on retail has led to the definitive abandonment of the plans by the investment fund Orion and Wizink to build the Sevilla Park macro-shopping centre. The firms had been planning a large investment in the project, of up to €300 million, according to ABC Sevilla.

The idea to build this 150,000-square-metre shopping centre was originally conceived by the French fund Orion – Neinor’s largest shareholder – and the cultural promoter Octagon – which manages the former Palacio de Deportes in Madrid (currently the Wizink Center) – back in 2014. It was called Sevilla Park and was going to house a large auditorium with capacity for 20,000 people on a site owned by the port of Sevilla and the CLH group.
