  • Cushman & Wakefield will help bosses at the internationally renowned marina add to the range of shops and restaurants

Puerto Banús, one of the most iconic sailing and tourist destinations anywhere in the Mediterranean, has announced that it is teaming up with international real estate consultants, Cushman & Wakefield. The agency will help the marina find new retail and leisure tenants in keeping with its strategy to increase the number of luxury brands operating from the Marbella port.

Puerto Banús is looking particularly to expand its selection of international brands, and so increase its attractiveness to people visiting from markets outside the Euro area.

David del Barrio, commercial director at Puerto Banús, said, "We are delighted to start this cooperation with a leading real estate consultancy...they are the perfect partner to face the ambitious targets that the marina has going forward."

Among the 100 boutiques in Puerto Banús are well-known international luxury names such as Dior, Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana and Jimmy Choo. Recently Saint Laurent, Loewe, Golden Goose and Patrizia Pepe have been added.

Puerto Banús first opened in 1970.
