• Crisis The opening of the largest shopping center in Madrid is delayed due to lack of supplies

Welcome to the new commercial resort of the 21st century.

Here you can do your shopping in the fashion stores, but you can also go down

a 135 meter long zip line

, enjoy a show of water jets on the lake or relax in a hammock at the beach club.

Oasiz Madrid will open its doors

on December 2 in the Madrid town of Torrejón de Ardoz and will become the largest open-air shopping center in the country, with 250,000 square meters dedicated to fun, relaxation, shopping and gastronomy.

The great revolution in this space is that the shops are in the background to make way for a huge range of leisure and adventure sports.

The customers of the future demand less consumption and

more adrenaline and experiences

.

The shopping center revolves around

two 10,000-square-meter lakes

, surrounded by palm trees and waterfalls, which have a jetty from which two boats will depart to tour the pond.

Around the lake there will be 32 restaurants and a gastronomic market, from where you can watch music concerts or

water shows

, which will be held from midnight.

Oasiz will also have

a beach club that includes a sandy beach

, swimming pool, jacuzzi, spa and a roof terrace with a DJ and chill out area, which will open for the summer.

Risk lovers will not only be able to enjoy the zip line, which goes over the lake, but it is also possible to practice climbing,

have fun in the wind tunnels

, drive electric go-karts or ice skating.

Among the firms present in Oasiz are Adidas, Fnac, Lidl, Springfield, Mango, Etam, Women 'Secret, among others, with the notable

absence of Inditex brands

.

The architecture has been taken care of to the maximum, so

curved shapes have been used

in order to give fluidity to the space and avoid sharp angles.

The building is also surrounded by vegetation, for which almost 100,000 trees and shrubs have been planted.

“We want to become a destination where people

have a 360-degree experience

.

We have very different spaces with different uses: from a churrero to a gym ”, explained yesterday Abel Patacho, design director of Oasiz, during the presentation of the building to the media.

The initiative belongs to the French company Phalsbourg,

which has invested 200 million euros

and has extensive experience in the Gallic country with 40 other shopping centers, eight of them large.

Work on this titanic project began in May 2018 and its opening

has suffered numerous delays

, the latest caused by the coronavirus pandemic and the global supply crisis.

Many brands with stores within Oasiz were

unable to receive the necessary products on time

.

In fact, some machines that have had to be rented and materials that come from Australia are still to arrive.

«We have suffered all the difficulties

.

The first, that of being French and not knowing the Spanish market.

Although we are neighboring countries, we do things differently.

Running a project of this size is complicated, not just marketing and construction.

And then the pandemic and Filomena caught us.

We have had no luck.

But, finally, we open next Friday and we are going to create 1,500 direct jobs ", declared yesterday Raphael Martin, president of the French company.

The children's audience also occupies a prominent place in this shopping center.

For Christmas,

three huge windows

have been installed

, in the style of Cortylandia, with animated animals from the farm, the jungle or the savannah, which will delight children.

In addition, there is a children's area with pirate ships and a huge 27-meter long wooden whale, where the little ones can climb up and play.

There will also be little trains and

children's animations

throughout the entire shopping center.

As soon as the tour begins, Oasiz has installed

a traveling exhibition of vintage cars

from iconic films such as

Back to the Future, James Bond, Starsky & Hutch

and

Fast & Furious

.

Culture will also have its place in the resort.

Two giant sculptures of King Kong and a bear

, in homage to the Bear and the Strawberry Tree of Madrid, by the French artist Richard Orlinski, welcome the visitor.

In addition, virtual museums will exhibit the work of Goya or Picasso on a monthly basis and giant screens will broadcast sporting events.

The center is located just 30 kilometers from the capital and very close to the A-2, which makes access easy.

In addition, it has three entrances to avoid

large traffic jams and crowds

.

The Phalsbourg company's calculations point to

an influx of 70,000 people on Saturdays

and to receive a total of 10 million visitors in the first year.

To absorb all this demand, Oasiz has an interior parking lot with 2,500 spaces and natural ventilation, since it is semi-open, in addition to the exterior, which has 1,100 parking spaces.

The building is also committed to sustainability thanks to a white roof of 18,800 square meters of Krion k-life, a 100% recyclable material,

8,000 square meters of photovoltaic panels

on the roofs and another 5,000 meters of green roofs with vegetation to reduce the footprint carbon.
