GPO, A TYLin Company, provided project management for the refurbishment of the La Roca Village shopping destination in Barcelona, Spain.
La Roca Village is among the nine European Villages of the Bicester Village Shopping Collection, one of the world’s leading luxury shopping destinations. GPO provided the preliminary and detailed designs, procurement, construction, and final negotiations, along with the execution of a new underground car park. The renovation of La Roca Village will enhance the shopping experience of visitors from China, Russia, South Korea, and the Middle East.
The Village is the first tourist destination in the country outside of Barcelona and one of the most visited attractions. It has more than 140 stores from the main international and European fashion and home decor brands.

The mall hosts walking areas as well as terrace areas for catering.
