Strategy & perfomance


Altarea Cogedim reconnects retail with its essence: exchanges of goods and services and encounters. Keeping its fingers on the pulse of its customers’ expectations, the Group is putting its expertise to work on popular formats: multi-use, open-plan, connected, reinvented spaces, etc. Altarea Cogedim creates spaces offering the prospect of shared experiences rather than just places. Our job is to create bonds. Both developer and investor, Altarea Cogedim focuses its building complex development and restructuring strategy on four product niches offering great potential: large regional shopping centres, travel retail (outlets in railway stations), large retail parks and convenience stores.

Our product lines

Large regional shopping centres. The Group develops and manages large regional shopping centres (Qwartz, Cap3000, etc.). Its centres boast a wide commercial offering: restaurants, leisure, services, cultural spaces. What criteria do they share? Intensity, connectivity, digital technology, comfort and architectural excellence, all in the service of a demanding and unparalleled customer experience.
Travel retail. Altarea Cogedim designs projects to transform railway stations (travel areas) into real living environments, for travellers as well as for local residents.
Large retail parks. Refreshed commercial spaces of this nature are resolutely turned towards environmental performance, meticulous design and clear mass market positioning combined with an effective and attractive price/ product offering.
Convenience retail. The Group has developed a qualitative offer in everyday retail and services, forging partnerships with local retailers and providing an attractive offer for local retailers and professionals (doctors, bakers, restaurants, etc.).

« Our strategy: focus our development on four product lines: regional shopping centres, travel retail, large retail parks and convenience stores. The Group has consistently seen itself as a medium- to long-term developer/owner of these retail formats, but a growing portion of its pipeline is now earmarked for sale. »
