Five new food operators are expected to open in Larcomar this year in a project that investment company Parque Arauco hopes will make the mall a gastronomic center in Lima.
The general manager of Parque Arauco in Peru, Eduardo Herrera, made the announcement that the process to create a popular gastronomic sea-view balcony has already begun. The group has started the turnover of many of the locations, beginning with the successful opening of La Bomboniere, among others, and is hoping for five new well-known brands this year.
Along with the opening of new restaurants, 40 new retail stores are expected to come to Larcomar in 2012 and the mall will also undergo major renovation and expansion. Parque Arauco is hoping for construction to start within 60 days and finish by December. The paperwork has already been filed with the district of Miraflores.
The next stage of the project will include the expansion of the mall and will be completed in the next two years.
Parque Arauco and its associates are expected to invest about US$70 million this year, up 30% from 2011. The group is hoping that sales from all of its malls in Peru, which include Larcomar, MegaPlaza and Parque Lambramini, will reach US$500 million in 2012.

There was a funicular-type transport in the past from the area of present-day Larcomar down to the beach. I saw a photo of it at the Rosa Nautica restaurant. Charge a small fee...design it to accommodate surf boards. People like riding in these kinds of conveyance ...Rio, Hong Kong, Barcelona, Santiago, Fuente De, are a few I remember.
