Vitantis Shopping Center, the retail park owned by Revetas Capital, has closed new leasing deals for 3,900 sqm with three companies that will occupy spaces for the next 5-10 years. 

Local retailer Proges, specialized in interior design products and LaserMaxx, the operator of laser tag areans, are the new tenants in the project. Meanwhile, Grill Market, specialized in the delivery of outdoor cooking and entertainment products, expanded its presence in the retail park. 

“The exceptional evolution recorded by Vitantis Shopping Center during the last 18 months is aligned with the resilience shown generally during the COVID period by the retail parks at global level and represents simply another value-adding outcome of its superior concept combining the mix of highly accessible locations, proximity to its customer communities with the viable physical and fluid functional layouts,” said Radu Boitan, Head of Investments at Revetas Capital Advisors.
