Italian Commercial Property Opportunity

Located in the illustrious historic city centre of Arezzo, above one of the bastions that grace the 16th-century fortifications, this exceptional modern commercial leisure property is available for sale. This leisure complex spans over 1,700 sqm and is presently fully operational, boasting impeccable condition and contemporary architectural designs, characterized by extensive windows and seamless integration of indoor and outdoor spaces. The interconnecting courtyards and yards, encompassing an area of 3,700 sqm, present a perfect setting for outdoor events and gatherings. Additionally, the restaurant within the complex can comfortably host up to 230 guests for various events and ceremonies.

While the current owners have chosen to utilize the property as a cinema with a restaurant and lounge bar, its inherent flexibility allows for effortless adaptation to alternative purposes.

Strategically positioned in a prime commercial location on the outskirts of Arezzo’s historic city centre, adjacent to two convenient parking lots, the property benefits from its proximity to Corso Italia, renowned for its array of stores and artisan boutiques, situated a mere 450 m away and easily accessible on foot in less than five minutes. Furthermore, Arezzo Central Station, offering connections to major destinations throughout Italy, is situated even closer.

This property is situated atop the San Bernardo bastion, located at the southwestern extremity of Arezzo’s protective city walls, constructed by the Medici family during the 16th century to safeguard the city. The substantial thickness of these walls, exceeding 4 m (13 ft), provides exceptional thermal and acoustic insulation.

Access to the property is granted through a doorway at the lower level of the rampart, leading to what was once a stronghold, now housing the various buildings and green areas.

The extensive leisure complex includes an indoor cinema with two screening rooms, one on the ground floor and the other underground, with capacities for 164 and 94 viewers, respectively. Furthermore, the complex features bathrooms and administrative offices, including a ticket booth. These cinema halls can serve a dual purpose, doubling as convention spaces for conferences and seminars. In addition, an enchanting outdoor cinema is available, boasting a spacious arena spanning more than 500 sqm and accommodating 350 seats for viewers, complemented by an outdoor bar and projection booth.

Adjacent to the cinema, the restaurant encompasses large dining rooms spanning two floors, each well-equipped with service bathrooms, alongside a sizable professional kitchen for meal preparation. The covered spaces within the restaurant can host up to 130 diners, and during the summer months, the outdoor areas provide an additional 100 seats.

Finally, at the heart of the square, the lounge bar stands with an expansive oval-shaped room on the ground floor, housing a central bar, while bathrooms are situated in the basement. The facility’s technical rooms and employee changing rooms are also located in the basement. Surrounding the bar is a pool forming a channel around the building, crossed by two walkways on the sides for easy access to the bar.

Encompassing an outdoor space of approximately 3,700 sqm above the bastion, this leisure property offers a delightful sanctuary for relaxation within Arezzo’s historic city centre. The presence of parking spaces below adds to the convenience for customers, serving as an invaluable asset for the establishment. In spring and summer, ornamental trees and flowers adorn the area with vibrant colours, providing shaded corners where patrons can enjoy drinks and cocktails even during daylight hours.
