Totalling more than 85,000 m², the Algarve Shopping Commercial Complex will feature an IKEA Store, a two-storey shopping centre, a large recreational area and an outlet village, the Designer Outlet Algarve. IKEA plans to open its doors in 2016. All other facilities are scheduled to open in summer 2017.
