Castlelake Acquires Land for 1,000 New Homes in Valencia

27 September 2019 – The US fund Castlelake, the majority shareholder of Aedas Homes, has acquired sufficient land, 100,000 square meters, to develop 1,000 homes in Quart de Poblet (València) from the real estate developer Grupo Ática.

Grupo Ática owned 60% of the total land in the new development, enough to build 1,400 homes out of a total of 2,300.  After the sale Ática will still own land for 400 homes, all of which will be subsidised (VPO). The two firms declined to reveal details of the transaction.

The remaining 40% of the land is owned by: Metrovacesa, with 6%; Dosval, with 3%, and the Quart de Poblet City Hall with 11%. Small property owners account for the remaining 20%.

Castlelake’s investment in the new development is expected to exceed 28 million euros, with €23 million in infrastructure works.
