Sunny centre in Bucharest

S IMMO AG opened Sun Plaza, one of the largest development projects in the history of the company, at the beginning of 2010. The shopping centre has over 80,000 m² of retail space and its anchor tenants include Zara, Leroy Merlin, Cora, Cinema City, Flanco and H&M. Along with more than 170 shops, the shopping centre also has numerous cafes, a food court, a cinema with 11 auditoriums, a bowling alley, child care facilities and a sports hall.

Direct metro access

Sun Plaza is located in the south of Bucharest in the city’s fourth district, at the place where two main traffic arteries meet. In addition to direct access to the metro – a unique feature in Romania – the centre has excellent connections to the road network and to numerous forms of public transport. With nearly 2,000 parking spaces on two levels, visitors can comfortably reach the centre by car. With more than 80,000 m² of lettable space, Sun Plaza is an important local employer and taxpayer. With this shopping centre, S IMMO AG is improving the local infrastructure and supporting the development of the region.

Over 40 new shops since March 2018

In the last two years, the Sun Plaza shopping centre has been modernised and expanded to accommodate new tenants. As part of the renovation work, more than 20,000 m² of space have been redesigned and offer space for more than 40 new shops. Brands such as Intimissimi, Calzedonia, Forever 21 and Terranova can now be found at the centre, which offers more than 170 shops in total

Awards and certifications

The refurbishment of the Sun Plaza shopping centre was selected as the Extension/Refurbishment of the Year at the 13th EuropaProperty SEE Real Estate Awards 2018. At the same time, Sun Plaza crossed the 100 million visitor mark after only eight years of being open.

The shopping centre also holds three official world records and therefore made it into the Guinness Book of World Records – for example, for the world’s largest indoor display of Christmas lights with 449,658 bulbs. Since it was opened, Sun Plaza has succeeded in establishing itself as one of the largest and most important shopping centres in Bucharest.
