Colombia: Bocagrande Plaza opens to the public

Bocagrande Plaza shopping centre, situated in Cartegena, Colombia, opened to the public last week. 

Located 5 minutes walk from the walled city, this world-class mixed-use complex in the hotel district of Cartagena de Indias, provides a mix of residential, commercial and leisure spaces within a unique, film-inspired concept.  

The 11900 m² commercial area includes a shopping mall comprising of 100 shops, a multiplex cinema, gym, food court, play area and 19 restaurants. 

The complex also includes a Hyatt Regency hotel and convention centre plus parking. This will be the first Hyatt Regency hotel in Colombia.  It will include 261 rooms; 74 holiday apartments and h² Hyatt Regency Condominium Residences, comprising 120 serviced apartments on the upper levels of the mall.

The design concept, both exterior and interior, is inspired by the important and famous international cinema festival that takes place every year in Cartagena de Indias. Overall, the design concept coupled with the project’s size and location makes this scheme a new highlight destination for the area and one that will contribute strongly to local tourism.

The  project was conducted by the Colombian firm Architecture Workshop Bogotá (TAB), directed by Daniel Bonilla, a well-known Colombian Architect. Chapman Taylor developed the façade of the podium and the interior design of the shopping centre.  

Phase one of the project, which includes the retail and leisure aspect, has just opened. Phase 2 is under construction and is scheduled for completion in 2015. Following that, Hyatt Hotel will open its doors in 2016.
