A 17,000 m2 Residential Plot Goes Up For Sale in Central Santander

12 February 2019 – Eje Prime

An operation is on the horizon in the heart of Santander. A plot of land spanning 17,000 m2, with planning permission to build homes up to three storeys high, has gone up for auction with a starting price of €1.3 million. The land is owned by a local family, which inherited several plots.

The objective of the sale is to divide the “proindiviso”, given that the land is currently owned by six members of the family and a third party. Nevertheless, an agreement between the owners allows the abbreviated procedure to apply to the auction, in other words, there is no need to set up a compensation board.

The plot, spanning 16,921 m2 and with a buildable surface area of 4,700 m2, is located in the urban centre of Santander, in a growth area next to the El Alisal shopping centre. The urbanisation has almost been finished and there are facilities and transport connections in the vicinity.

Following its publication on the auction website of the Official Gazette of the Mercantile Registry (BOE), interested parties have a period of twenty days to submit offers, after which a period will open for the owners to present the option to improve the bid to third parties.

The land has planning permission to build three-storey blocks with garages and storerooms, as well as a communal area with a garden and swimming pool. The land is valued at €2.15 million, according to an independent expert. That is the de facto starting price, although a discount of 60% has been established thereon. Hence, the minimum price of €1.29 million.

The same family owns another plot very nearby, spanning 9,157 m2, with a buildable surface area of 3,394 m2, which is not adjacent but which is located in the same urbanisation, according to explanations provided by sources speaking to Eje Prime.
