Hydrion Retail Park in Arlon is something which everybody in the Luxembourg region knows well. This retail park is embarking on its second youth with the arrival of new retailers. The Asset Services team of Cushman & Wakefield is particularly proud to have introduced into it Basic Fit, DI, Heytens and Action.
“These arrivals make Hydrion Park more attractive than ever”, states Olivier Lebrun, Head of Asset Services. “Today, it is virtually totally let”. But Olivier Lebrun’s teams have also completed the reconstruction of the retail area above Tom&Co (which was the victim of a fire) in record time. This area now constitutes the new bridge-head of the entire park, which sees it as constituting a new start.
The increasingly good health of Hydrion can be seen in the figures: it is no longer uncommon to register a peak of 150,000 cars per month. “The success of events organised in the park show that consumer habits are changing in the Arlon region, making Hydrion central visitor destination”, explains Guillaume Binet, Property and Asset Manager, who has a lot to do with the success of the park.
Elsewhere, the Listo shopping centre located at Mersch has also welcomed a retailer well known in Belgium but totally unknown in Luxembourg, namely the afore-mentioned Action. Listo had already welcomed the first Colruyt in the Grand Duchy, eight years ago. “The arrival of a player such as Action can only help breathe new life into this shopping centre, where several things have happened over recent times with a great deal of success”, states Guillaume Binet. “I am in particular thinking of the opening of the motorway to the north and of ‘Coat Sunday’. And the Saint-Nicolas event also promises to be a great success”.
Staying with Listo, a retailers’ association has also been launched thanks to the active contribution of Cushman & Wakefield.
