Mercabarna has hung up the ‘no vacancy’ sign just before the end of 2017. The central Barcelona market has sold the only plot that was without an owner in the complex for €4.7 million. Until now, the hypermarket for Makro professionals was located on the plot.
The buyer, the meat company Companyia General Càrnia, has paid 30% more than the original asking price stipulated by Mercabarna for the warehouse. It was also the only firm that participated in the public tender, according to Expansión.
The awarded land spans a surface area of 20,420 m2 and houses a two-storey building. The meat company has the right to lease the asset for the next 20 years.
