Medellín has recently welcomed a new addition to its urban landscape, the Centro Comercial Arkadia. This state-of-the-art shopping mall, situated in the Belén comuna, has quickly become a focal point for people all around the neighborhood. Opened on November 13, 2019, the mall has captured the attention of the citizens of Medellin.
Arkadia Mall’s strategic location in the heart of the Belén comuna positions it as a convenient and accessible shopping destination. Serving as the only Western-style mall in the western part of Belén, it caters to the needs of the local community while also attracting visitors from neighboring areas.

History of the Arkadia Mall

The story behind Arkadia Mall’s creation is a testament to collaboration and vision. The Cimento consortium, a partnership between Guatemalan investment firm Spectrum and local company Amarilo, turned a dream into reality with this new shopping destination. The mall spans an impressive 538,196 square feet (50,000 square meters) of space, offering room for both shopping and leisure activities.
Its location in Belén was a strategic move, as the area was previously underserved in terms of shopping options. With only one relatively small mall, Los Molinos, serving the entire comuna, Arkadia filled a void in the retail landscape. This fact is underscored by Belén’s sizable population of approximately 200,000, making it the largest comuna in Medellín, even surpassing El Poblado, which has around 133,000 residents.

The Anchor Stores of Arkadia

Step inside Arkadia Mall, and you’ll find yourself a widee range of shopping options. The mall houses approximately 160 shops, each catering to a variety of needs. From male and female fashion to children’s and youth clothing, footwear, sporting goods, furniture and decoration, lingerie, opticians, and fast food establishments, Arkadia truly covers all the bases.
Anchor tenants such as Cinemark, Decathlon, Euro, Falabella, Ktronix, and Smart Fit offer a complete shopping experience for visitors. Let’s talk more about the anchor tenants of Centro Comercial Arkadia.
