Goldcar’s Founders Acquire Bankia’s HQ in Alicante

30 November 2018 – Eje Prime

The founders of Goldcar have acquired the headquarters of Bankia in Alicante. The family office owned by the brothers Juan and Pedro Alcaraz, Aligrupo, has been awarded the property that the bank used to own in La Explenada area, and for which numerous offers have been made since it went on the market in October.

The offer received from Aligrupo was the highest of all those received for the building, which will no longer be in the hands of Bankia due to the property divestment process that the entity is carrying out following its merger with Banco Mare Nostrum (BMN), according to Alicante Plaza.

During the month that the building has been up for sale, Bankia has received around thirty visits, which is a good sign of the interest that this operation has sparked in the real estate sector in Alicante.

With this new purchase, the Alcaraz brothers are strengthening their property portfolio, which comprises luxury residential buildings for rent in Madrid. Over the last two years, Aligrupo has acquired two properties in the prime areas of Salamanca and Chamberí for that purpose.

Aligrupo Family Office Acquires Residential Building In Chamberí

7 November 2017 – Eje Prime

Family-owned real estate companies are continuing to fatten up their asset portfolios. In this vein, Aligrupo has just acquired number 13, Calle Francisco Ricci, located in the Madrilenian neighbourhood of Chamberí. Until now, the property was owned by a private investor.

Aligrupo plans to turn the property into a new housing development to meet the growing demand in the area. The building is located next to the ICADE study centre and the El Corte Inglés store on Calle Princesa. The operation has been brokered by the real estate consultancy firm JLL.

It is a residential building that needs renovating and which, given its surface area and layout, lends itself to the construction of homes with space for common areas such as garden areas or a swimming pool.
