Dolce Vita Coimbra

One of the largest private investments ever made in the central region of Portugal, Dolce Vita Coimbra, its developer’s response to the city of Coimbra’s 2002 international request for proposals for the city’s “Eurostadium” project, is a mixed-use complex that transformed the underground concourse of an existing municipal football (soccer) stadium into a four-level regional shopping center and linked this to a new recreation center, a multiuse pavilion, and 202 apartments. The complex seamlessly integrates shopping, sports, leisure, and cultural activities with residences within the central area of Coimbra, providing the city’s 405,000 residents with a wide range of new facilities and services.
