The government of the Community of Madrid sold seven plots of land for 7.2 million euros in July. That single sale was more than was sold in the entire last four years. Obras de Madrid had only managed to sell land worth €2.9 million in land over the last three years. This year’s buyers included Mercadona, a company that builds funeral homes, logistics and real estate firms. The regional government is looking to raise more funds through the sale of another 18 plots of land.
Mercadona acquired the most expensive asset, paying €2.541 million for a 4,200-square-meter plot of land, located in the neighbourhood of Ciudad Jardín, in Arroyomolinos.
