18 May 2018 – Eje Prime
The office sector has moved into top gear in Cataluña. The publicity giant McCann Erickson has left its headquarters in the Edificio Planeta in Barcelona and moved into a building measuring almost 3,000 m2 in the 22@ district, owned by Laboratorios Kin. Meanwhile, the pharmaceutical company is going to leave that property and move its headquarters to number 201 Avenida Diagonal, with offices spanning 700 m2, according to confirmation from sources close to the operation speaking to Eje Prime.
Laboratorios Kin, owner of the building, ordered the complete renovation of the asset and its change of use, from industrial to offices. Having carried out that process, the owner decided to make the asset profitable, with the arrival of McCann, and also to put the property up for sale, although the asking price is not yet known. According to real estate sources, the advertising agency has been advised by JLL, whilst the sales mandate has been entrusted to Savills Aguirre Newman.
The building is located at number 123 Calle Ciudad de Granada, at the intersection with Calle Tánger. Following a renovation project that has lasted for more than 6 months, the asset has come onto the market with 2,740 m2 of office space spread over four floors measuring 650 m2 each and a loft measuring 140 m2. McCann will pay €16.5/m2/month to occupy the property.
