Habitat Inmobiliaria has purchased land with a buildable surface area of 22,000 m2 in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, where it is planning to build two developments comprising 196 homes in total, in which it is going to invest €45 million.

The company, which carried out 27 land purchase operations during the course of 2018, spanning 170,000 m2, is now looking to develop around 2,500 homes, in which it is going to invest more than €515 million.

These operations form part of the company’s strategic plan, which will involve an investment of €500 million by 2021, and which will involve a delivery rate of more than 2,000 homes per year from 2021 onwards, according to figures from the property developer.

With all of this, as well as its presence in Andalucía, Levante, Cataluña, Madrid and the Canary Islands, in 2018, the firm incorporated new regions into its portfolio with plots in Cantabria, Asturias and Galicia (…).

Aedas Expands into Torrejón de Ardoz (Madrid) with 100 New Homes

2 July 2018 – Eje Prime

Aedas Homes is extending its tentacles in Madrid and has reached Torrejón de Ardoz with its first residential project. The listed property developer is going to develop 100 homes in that municipality, which will constitute the Lángara urbanisation.

The homes, which include ground floor garden flats and penthouses with two, three and four bedrooms, have already gone on the market with prices starting at €165,000. The promotion will have a garden, a swimming pool, a gym, a children’s play area and a lounge bar in the common areas.

Lángara is designed for both first-time buyers and those looking to reposition themselves on the property ladder, according to Aedas. With more than 1.5 million m2 of buildable land in its portfolio, the property developer still has space to develop around 14,000 homes in Madrid, Cataluña, Sevilla, Costa del Sol, Levante and the Balearic Islands.

The plans of Aedas, in which the US fund Castlelake holds a stake, include reaching a handover rate that exceeds the number of homes under construction by 2022. The company led by David Martínez wants to achieve the break-even point after launching more than 2,000 homes this year: 2,500 in 2019 and peaking with 3,000 homes in 2020 and 2021.
