21 May 2018 – Press Release
Silicius Inmuebles en Rentabilidad, the Socimi managed by Mazabi, has purchased an office building in the heart of Madrid’s CBD, on Calle Velázquez, 123.
The property, which has been renovated recently, meets the requirements of the investment policy established by the shareholders and represents another step in the Socimi’s growth phase, ahead of its debut on the stock market. The acquisition has been conducted entirely using own funds.
In the heart of Madrid’s CBD, the property has an above ground gross leasable area (GLA) of 2,346 m2 (offices and a commercial premise) plus 30 parking spaces. Currently, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors are available for rent; they are completely open plan and have a surface area of 300 m2 each. This is a highly visible property thanks to its location at the junctions of Calles Velázquez and María de Molina, and the floors enjoy lots of light (with 15 windows per floor). The property is currently in the pre-certification phase of obtaining a sustainability stamp.
This is a firm step forward for the Socimi as it advances its growth phase. The company, which specialises in long-term rental assets, is continuing its growth phase with the acquisition and contribution of new assets to its existing portfolio, following its policy to invest in diversified assets that generate stable rental income.
The Director-General of Silicius, Juan Diaz de Bustamante, said that “the purchase of this asset is a good example of the ideal asset for our portfolio, given that it meets the necessary requirements set out in our principles: to back conservative investments over the long term, as well as to ensure diversification and asset liquidity in order to pay an annual dividend to shareholders”.
With a very defined investment policy, Silicius is currently evaluating the purchase or contribution of properties worth approximately €500 million (commercial premises, out-of-town stores, shopping centres, office and hotels in Spain). The volume of investment/contribution per property amounts to between €5 million and €30 million.
Currently, Silicus owns assets worth €120 million, which generate annual rental income of approximately €6 million. The company’s assets include several commercial premises in “prime” locations with long-term tenants (Paseo de la Castellana, Velázquez, Blanca de Navarra and Paseo de Yeserías), a multi-tenant office building on c/Virgen de los Peligros (in the historical centre of Madrid), an office building on Calle Obenque, 4 in Madrid (with a façade overlooking the A-2) and a hotel with a long-term lease in Conil de la Frontera (Cádiz).
Silicius is a Socimi, managed by Mazabi, specialising in the purchase and active management of profitable assets that generate stable rental income over the long term for investors, providing them with an annual dividend (…).
