The Socimi Silvercode Investments, managed by Drago, has signed an agreement with Spaces, the new international workspace supplier that promotes dynamic communities for entrepreneurs and companies, to lease it Building I of the Castellana 200 complex. Spaces, whose main activity focuses on offering flexible, innovative and disruptive workspaces, including coworking offices, in more than 100 countries, has decided to strengthen its expansion in Spain with the rental of this building, which has a surface area of 5,155 m2.
As a result of this deal, Spaces will have three centres available in the Spanish capital, in addition to the centre it owns in Barcelona. CBRE, the leading international consultancy and real estate services company, has advised the operation. Divided into nine open-plan floors spanning more than 600 m2 each with lots of light thanks to the integrated glass façade, Building I in Castellana 200 was the first in the country to obtain the B+ rating granted by the Spanish Office Association (AEO) for its excellent qualities and services, which are capable of exceeding the expectations of even the most demanding occupants.
According to Philippe Jiménez, Director of Spaces in Spain: “Following our arrival in Madrid with Spaces Río and the imminent opening of Atocha, Castellana 200 is going to become the third Spaces centre in the capital. This building is in a privileged location in the heart of the city’s business district, which will allow the new way of working that Spaces offers to reach many more Madrilenian companies and entrepreneurs”. And he added, “Spaces is still looking for new locations both in Madrid as well as in other Spanish cities to continue its growth across the country.
With this operation, Drago and CBRE have managed to lease more than 95% of the space available for office rental in Castellana 200, a complex comprising two office buildings and a shopping centre located on the Madrilenian Paseo de la Castellana. Building II has an occupancy rate of 95% and is home to leading companies such as Discovery Channel, Linkedin, CBRE, Ebury and Schweppes.
