The property developer Bonavista Developments will invest €100 million over the next three years in luxury housing in Barcelona. It will focus on both new-building developments and renovation projects, primarily in the upper area of the Catalan capital, as well as in El Eixample.
Specifically, the company has recently started work on the renovation of a building at number 34 Calle Girona in Barcelona. It has also launched two new build developments on the beachfront in Gavà Mar (Barcelona) and Calle Saüc in the Barcelona neighbourhood of Sarrià, according to a statement issued by the company on Tuesday.
Until now, the most iconic project carried out by Bonavista Developments has been the renovation of the modernist Casa Burés building, which involved an investment of €40 million and which is expected to be completed in 2018.
Bonavista Developments, associated with the British fund Europa Capital, focuses on both domestic and international clients and has identified the figure of a new buyer who spends periods of between two and three months in Barcelona.
The partners of Bonavista Developments, founded in 2014, are Jacinto Roqueta, Àlex Miquel and Marcus Donaldson, and the company manages the investments of Europa Capital, a British manager controlled by the Japanese group Mitsubishi Estate, which channels investments from institutions, such as insurance companies and pension funds, from Europe and the USA.
