McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Vancouver Airport is a joint venture between McArthurGlen, Europe’s leading owner, developer and manager of designer outlets, and Vancouver Airport Authority, a community-based, not-for-profit organization that operates Vancouver International Airport. The centre is located at 7899 Templeton Station Road in Richmond.
McArthurGlen Group, Europe’s leading owner, developer and manager of designer outlets, was founded in Europe by Kaempfer Partners in 1993. The pioneer of designer outlet retailing in the region, McArthurGlen has since developed nearly 600,000 m² (6.5 million sq feet) of outlet space, with a current value of over Euros 5 billion ($5.9 billion/£3.9 billion). The company manages 20 McArthurGlen Designer Outlets across eight countries: Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands and the UK. The centres are home to the most sought-after luxury and premium brands, and offer fashion-savvy customers year-round savings of 30-70% in vibrant and stylish shopping environments.
As part of its on-going expansion, McArthurGlen is due to open McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Vancouver Airport in spring 2015. Other new centres in planning are in Provence (Marseille), Ghent (between the Belgian cities of Brussels and Bruges), Remscheid (near the German city of Cologne and east of Düsseldorf), Málaga (southern Spain) and two new centres in Istanbul.
In 2013, the Kaempfer Partners sold a 50% interest in McArthurGlen to the Simon Property Group Co. (NYSE SPG), the world’s largest retail property owner.
