Andalusian Government to Sell Former Post Office Building in Málaga

14 October 2019 The former Post Office building in Málaga will finally go on sale after a decade vacant, as the Andalusian government has approved its sale after lifting a €2.14 million embargo on the property. The sale comes at a time when the local real estate market is in an upswing, and potential investors have taken an interest in the property.

Zoning laws in the city, however, state that the property must be used as residences for students or senior citizens, or as a university centre or hospital. Market sources believe that gaining municipal approval to convert the property into use as a hotel would be a lengthy and complex process.

The Andalusian government has set a base price of just over 16.8 million euros, somewhat lower than the €19-million price a valuation gave it a few months ago. Interested parties must contact the government by November 14.
