A10 Center, Wildau

The A10 Center in Wildau has been part of our portfolio since the beginning of 2010. This spacious shopping centre just outside Berlin was opened in 1996 and is conveniently located on the A10 motorway and in close proximity to Berlin-Brandenburg-International (BBI) Airport in Schönefeld, which is currently being expanded to serve as the capital city’s main airport.

Following the acquisition of the centre, our primary concern was to complete the A10 Triangle project as quickly as possible. This is a new construction that directly adjoins the centre and houses many new shops. Since the Triangle was opened on 6 April 2011, the A10 Center has offered around 200 specialist shops as well as service providers and catering outlets, spread over 66,000 m2 of retail space. There are 4,000 customer parking spaces.

The existing centre will be modernised by the autumn of 2011 to ensure that an even more welcoming atmosphere awaits customers. The new building has created around 400 new jobs, which means that more than 1,000 people now work at the centre.

Including the Triangle and the modernisation work, the investment volume stands at approximately €265 million. More than 630,000 people live within a 30-minute radius of the site and over 1.15 million within a 45-minute radius of the centre.

In addition to existing specialist shops such as Real, Karstadt Sports, Peek & Cloppenburg and C&A, a variety of new concepts have been added since the Triangle opened, including many new tenants from the youth and high-end fashion sector such as Tommy Hilfiger, Jack Wolfskin and Marc O’Polo. Additional specialist retailers such as Fielmann, Rossmann and myToys will complete the offering in the future.

In addition to a shopping experience, the A10 Center also offers a world of leisure, with enticing attractions such as a multiplex cinema, bowling centre and fitness centre, as well as “Bambooland” for children.
