Situated on the black sea coast of Bulgaria, The Strand open air mall was completed in summer 2013.
The Strand was inspired by the atmosphere of the open street, rather than an enclosed mall, it bridges the gap between historic streetscape and contemporary shopping lifestyle, offering a healthier alternative for days out.
The shopping centre is the first of its kind in the country and utilises the favourable climatic conditions to develop an open street mall.
Since its opening, The Strand was shortlisted for ‘Building of the Year’, and has been nominated for numerous prestigious awards nationally. The project was listed as one of the ten most innovative projects for shopping centre’s in Europe at the Cannes, international retail property market.
