Inauguration of new youth housing and shopping areas in SlotsArkaderne
After almost one year of construction work, SlotsArkaderne opens its doors to a brand new shopping area. Space has been created to make way for a new H&M on two floors and 13 units of attractive youth housing, following a merger with the neighbouring property.
On 22 November, SlotsArkaderne celebrated the opening of the shopping centre’s renovation and extension of almost 3,000 square metres.
The new shopping area has gained a large, beautiful boutique facade facing the pedestrian street, where Slotsgade 25 is now included as part of the SlotsArkaderne. This has led to an even greater integration with central Hillerød’s urban environment.
A new H&M is opening on two floors with a full range, along with an H&M Home stocking a wide range of home interior products. Entrances from both Slotsgade and SlotsArkaderne mean the store becomes a central part of the new shopping area.
“An inspiring centre requires continuous development. With H&M as a strengthened and even greater anchor tenant, we can attract more customers from all over North Zealand and strengthen the position of SlotsArkaderne,” says Eva Handest, property manager, on behalf of Danske Shopping Centres, which owns SlotsArkaderne.
Youth housing in the heart of Hillerød
In conjunction with the inauguration, thirteen 1-bedroom units of youth housing were ready for new residents on 1 November. The modern studio apartments feature loft beds, skylights and access to a large rooftop terrace overlooking Hillerød.
SlotsArkaderne also offers 50 attractive homes above the new youth accommodation and shopping area.
“By combining the centre with new homes for Hillerød's younger generation, we optimise the space, and the residents are an obvious target group for the centre. We have focused on ensuring the right mix of shops, and the expansion means SlotsArkaderne can offer shopping in 60 stores in an updated setting,” says Eva Handest.
SlotsArkaderne has 60 stores in 26,500 m2 and with 5.6 million customers a year, the centre is a key shopping destination in North Zealand.
