New Marbella Shopping Centre Given Green Light

UK property developers are set to build “Marbella’s new calling card”, as a stunning 100-million-euro retail complex is due to take shape on the Costa del Sol.

The two UK companies; Citygrove and Burlington, have described the commercial complex, to be known as Marbella Plaza as “the most modern and ambitious of the last 25 years” in the Andalucian town.


The comercial development project will consist of over 30,000 square metres of residential and retails space and is expected to bring in large international firms to the Marbella seafront.

The building work is set to start next year and should be completed by the end of 2023.

It is hoped that the development will create over 500 direct and indirect jobs and the Marbella town hall are reported to be backing the project.

Marbella Plaza “involves significant improvements for the well-being of the population, regenerating a degraded environment in a highly consolidated residential area, providing a significant improvement in mobility conditions, through the construction of a new four-lane road, and increasing the areas set aside for parks and gardens, public community facilities and public parking, all in accordance with the demanding urban planning requirements applicable in the municipality “, said the international retail consultancy firm, Savills Aguirre Newman.
