Wolf Theiss has advised McArthurGlen, a developer, owner, and operator of designer outlet centers in Europe and Canada, on matters relating to the expansion of its center in Parndorf.
According to Wolf Theiss, the firm "was responsible for the environmental impact assessment and gaining approval for 'Phase V,' a project to expand the Designer Outlet Center Parndorf." The firm reports that "in addition to handling the administrative proceedings, the financing of the project, the creation of the general planning contract, the general contractor agreement and service contracts, Wolf Theiss was responsible for all contracts with tenants."
"Owing to a massive expansion of the parking lot," Wolf Theiss reports, "the project had to undergo an environmental impact assessment, the first one of its kind for a shopping center in the region. The assessment consisted of a territorial impact assessment as well as other concerns relating to environmental, construction and commercial law." The implementation of the "Phase V" project will be completed on April 11, 2017, Wolf Theiss states, "bringing the Designer Outlet Center Parndorf to a total 36,500 square meters and 160 stores. The center will also offer a broader range of dining options."
Wolf Theiss Counsel Birgit Kraml, who specializes in real estate and environmental law at the firm, coordinated the project in all matters pertaining to public and civil law. The Wolf Theiss team also included Partner Peter Oberlechner and Associate Katharina Dalagianis.
