intu joint venture


Eurofund Capital Partners





Eurofund was founded in 1994.

In 1998 it completed the development of Parc Vallès, a 60,000 sqm integrated leisure and retail park in Terrassa, Barcelona.

In 1999 Eurofund saw the potential for the concept of Shopping Resorts, destinations where people not only come to shop but also to spend their free time.

Puerto Venecia in Zaragoza opened in 2012 and was voted 'Best new shopping and leisure centre in the world' at the 2013 MAPIC awards. With a GLA of over 200,000 sqm it is Europe's largest retail destination and welcomes nearly 20m guests every year.

In April 2013 Eurofund established a joint venture with intu, the leading investor in shopping centres in the UK, to develop and manage a platform of Shopping Resorts in Spain.

In January 2015, Eurofund created Eurofund Capital Partners and entered into its first project, a joint venture to extend and transform Dolce Vita Tejo in Lisbon, Portugal, the country's largest shopping centre, into the country's first Shopping Resort.

Because sheds are the new shops, Eurofund has entered into a joint venture with Logistics Capital Partners, one of Europe’s leading logistics developers, to develop logistics platforms in Spain and Portugal.

Our philosophy

The world of retail is going through a period of enormous transformation and structural change, mainly thanks to e-commerce and changes in consumer behaviour.  Out of this upheaval some terrific opportunities emerge not only online, but also for bricks and mortar, and most importantly in customer experience.  Our unique relationship with retailers gives us privileged insight into their future plans to address and embrace change

Our focus at Eurofund is to keep pace with the endless changes the digital economy presents, embracing the opportunities e-commerce brings for bricks and mortar, and importantly to enhance customer experience with a level of emotional engagement that on-line cannot.
