Indotek Group has announced the strategic acquisition of Galleria Porta Siena on LinkedIn. Galleria Porta Siena, a prime commercial property located in the heart of Siena, joins the group's growing portfolio of Italian retail assets.

This acquisition underlines Indotek's strategic vision to invest in well-positioned secondary shopping centres in Italy's smaller, high-traffic cities. Galleria Porta Siena is a vibrant retail hub with a unique positioning near key landmarks and infrastructure, indicating strong potential for consistent customer footfall.

Indotek's Country Head for Italy, Eleonora Galloni, shares insights into this key move: "Siena is one of Italy's prominent cities with a high influx of tourists, a strong local base, and a significant university presence. The Galleria's position, located in a multipurpose complex and nestled between the train station and Siena's historic centre, ensures consistent footfall. It also embodies our vision of investing in secondary shopping centres in prime locations of smaller yet well-frequented cities."

Krisztian Hornok, Managing Director of International Transactions & Asset Management at Indotek Group, underscores the strategic significance of the Italian market: "Our interest in the Italian market has been growing steadily. We're currently assessing multiple properties that have good fundamentals and are in need of turnaround and/or active asset management."
