The growing demand for land in Málaga has reactivated an operation involving the site that used to be home to the former Cervezas Victoria factory, situated alongside the Azucarera-Intelhorce highway to the west of the city centre.
Thirteen years ago, the Town Hall approved the urbanisation of those plots, which were divided into four blocks in order to house offices, businesses, warehouses and parking lots. The urbanisation work was completed but the economic crisis hit before the plots could be occupied. They ended up in the hands of the banks, specifically, Unicaja, which has now managed to offload most of them onto entrepreneurs who are keen to develop the area.
According to sources familiar with the operation, local and German investors have teamed up to acquire the plots, which are crying out to be transformed into a new business centre. The plots span a surface area of 50,137 m2 in total and the investors have spent €7 million to date buying up the land.
