A successful shopping and leisure destination

The Alisos retail and leisure development at Las Palmas in Gran Canaria opened to the public in November 2017 and has been trading very successfully ever since. Alisios is the Spanish word for 'trade winds', with the design inspired by the island's marine location and climate.

Three levels of retail, F&B and leisure

The 138,000m² scheme takes the form of an open-air centre on two commercial levels and a third cinema level. The scheme offers a total lettable area of 64,500m², with 120 shops, restaurants and cafés and 2,500 underground parking spaces. Brand names include Zara, Pull and Bear, Flying Tiger, GAME, Adidas, McDonalds and KFC. The centre is strategically well-located on the main road to the west of the city, giving it a wide catchment area across the northern half of the island.

Attractive and relaxing streets and squares

The centre is organised around open, but shaded, streets, squares and terraces – ideal for taking advantage of the island’s year-round warm climate. The colourful palette and material textures are inspired by the island's volcanic soil, sand dunes and hills.

Alisios was designed and delivered by Chapman Taylor’s Madrid studio, which previously designed the El Muelle de Santa Catalina shopping centre on the same island.
