Grupo Amenabar is finding new work for its property developer. The Basque company, whose main line of business is construction, has been awarded the project to build one hundred homes in Sevilla, which will boost the growth of its residential development area. The project has been awarded by Sareb, after it put a 4,373 m2 plot of land up for auction in the La Florida area of the Andalucian capital. The two companies will work together to build the complex.
The two entities are working against the clock to submit the basic design before 27 November, in order to obtain the construction permit from the Town Hall of Sevilla and thus be in a position to sign the contract, according to ABC.
The plot in La Florida used to be owned by the company Novaindes, until it filed for creditor bankruptcy and liquidated its company following the burst of the real estate bubble. Sareb took over the land in 2013 for €61 million.
Amenabar Promociones Residenciales is the property developer arm of the Basque group, whose turnover in 2016 amounted to €380 million. The property developer from San Sebastián has invested more than €200 million on the purchase of land over the last two years. Most of the land it has acquired is located in Madrid, País Vasco, Cataluña, Navarra and the Costa del Sol, but it is also considering investment opportunities in other provincial capitals.
The group currently has a land portfolio spanning more than half a million square metres, worth €900 million.
