Málaga has 3 Macro-Projects in the Pipeline for 2030

20 March 2019 - Eje Prime

Málaga is giving itself a makeover. It wants to be known as a smart city or the museum city, rather than the tourism hub for the Costa del Sol. To this end, the Town hall of Málaga is managing more than thirty projects to be launched over the next ten years. And the outlook is bright. The city offers high returns both on the high street, as well as in shopping centres and prime offices.

In this context, the Mediterranean city is working on three major projects. The first is a special plan for the port, which covers 1 million m2 of space, where a 37-storey hotel, three office buildings, a customs building and a large auditorium are going to be built if all of the relevant approvals are granted.

The second is the Los Martiricos development, a residential project on a site spanning 67,000 m2, where the plan is to build 220 social housing properties and 450 private homes. Offices and a commercial area will also be constructed if the corresponding building permits are approved.

The third major project is planned for the site of the former Repsol plant, where the Town Hall of Málaga wants to create an office area. Alternatively, it could build four blocks of social housing properties on that site.

The Andalucían city has many other projects underway. Most respond to the growth in residential demand, especially in the market for alternative assets, such as halls of residence for students and nursing homes for the elderly. But overall the real estate sector is booming. In fact, construction permits rose by 40% in 2018.

The Bidding Opens for the Largest Plot of Tertiary Land in Madrid

20 March 2019 - Expansión

Savills Aguirre Newman is marketing more than 180,000 m2 of land for the development of retail, hotel and office properties in the Valdebebas area of Madrid. It is the largest undeveloped tertiary use plot in the capital and the surface area for sale has been divided into three zones, all of which are being managed by the Valdebebas Compensation Board. The owners of the land include Monthisa, Bisbel, Vivienda Económica, Celteo, Coindeco and Inmobiliaria Espacio.

The plan is for the sale of the land to be completed by the beginning of the summer, which means that a large number of investors will be able to participate. Retail, hotel and office property developers have already expressed interest in the site, although no firm offers have been received yet.

The development of this new area was unblocked in February, after five years on the backburner, when the Town Hall of Madrid dismissed all of the appeals against the approval of the economic reparcelation project of the Valdebebas land.
