Amsterdam, 29 September 2020 – Redevco, one of the largest privately-owned real estate investment managers in Europe, has completed an extensive refurbishment of its iconic C&A store in the city centre of Zurich. The redevelopment has transformed it into an energy-efficient property, incorporating the clothing retailer’s latest design concept. Redevco is targeting a BREEAM In-Use Excellent sustainability rating.
The recently re-opened flagship store has been completely modernised with open and transparent façades replacing the previously closed exterior. Furthermore the renovation comprises improved statics, new HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) installations and a green roof. The store has a leasable area of 4,134 sqm.
Dirk Adriaenssen, Managing Director Redevco Switzerland & Central Europe, said: “C&A has been a tenant in this building situated only two steps away from Zurich’s Bahnhofstrasse since 1969 and this renovation has significantly enhanced its visibility and flexibility, while reducing the store’s carbon footprint. The new design creates a sense of spaciousness on the lower floors and the 5th and 6th levels are more easily accessible thanks to the extension of the elevators and staircases to these floors. This store is now better placed than ever to benefit from the high footfall generated by surrounding retail buildings and its central location in the retail heart of the city.”
