The French company, specialised in digital marketing, will occupy an entire, 8,500-square-meter building on Almogàvers Street. The company will leave Torre Mapfre and double its workforce.
The neighbourhood of 22@ will have a new and famous neighbour starting next year. The French multinational Criteo will move its offices in Barcelona to the city’s technological district in 2019, after signing the lease for an entire, 8,500-square-meter building on Almogàvers Street that is owned by the Oaktree and Freo investment funds.
Operating from the Torre Mapfre since 2014, Criteo plans to expand its presence in the Catalan capital, where it has its second-largest office in Europe (just behind its headquarters in Paris), with its new headquarters in Barcelona. The company will double its workforce, from the current 350 employees to a high of 700, according to Expansión.
The building in which the multinational will take up residence will be completely renovated by the Barcelona architectural office of BCA, one of the most active in the area of 22@ and will involve an investment of twelve million euros.
The building is located in what is known as the golden mile of the tech hub, at 177-185 Almogàvers street, very close to the Glories Tower, an icon of the district. The building has three floors, 600 square meters of terrace on the roof and a large central atrium.
