“We are really pleased that our project is now in its final stage of construction completion and we can confirm with enthusiasm and confidence its opening in October”, says Luis Barcelona, CEO of Grupo Iberebro.

“In close conversation with the general contractors of the construction and tenants we agreed on this new opening date. The concept of La Torre Outlet Zaragoza is well perceived by the market, because of its perfect location in the heart of Northern Spain and supported by the fact that outlet centres haven proven already successfully their position in the past, even in turbulent times. In this context I would like to mention, that we will create 1,000 direct jobs and 8,000 indirect jobs by completion”, he adds.
