They are located in Madrid, Andalusia, Castilla – León, Catalonia and Galicia, together with parking lots and storage rooms, apart from the ongoing building works (6 housing developments under construction) and land (four plots). Altogether, they occupy 351.555 m².

Several investors had demonstrated their willingness to take part – Fortress and Blackstone among them – before September 20th when the deadline for non-binding offers expired.
