Metrovacesa is backing the Malagan residential market. The property developer is going to invest €175 million in the Torre del Río residential project in the city of Málaga. The proposal involves the construction, on a surface area spanning 58,368 m2, of three residential properties, distributed over 21 storeys and with the capacity for more than 250 homes.
Each tower will house around 75 large homes, two swimming pools, a gym, a gastrobar, a coworking area and a movie theatre. The first units are expected to be handed over at the beginning of 2021.
The construction of the project is going to generate 1,500 direct and indirect jobs and is going to be led by Estudio Lamela, the company that won the architectural tender to construct Torre del Río. In the vicinity around the three skyscrapers, 39,131 m2 of space will be dedicated to free public areas and 12,648 m2 will be allocated for school, sports and social uses, as well as a building for tertiary and hotel use.
According to the developers of the project, “the urban development of this area is going to allow the recovery for Malaga of old industrial enclaves along the Antonino Banderas seafront on Calle Pacífico.
The Torre del Río residential development follows another investment undertaken by Metrovacesa in the south. In June, the listed property developer signed an agreement with the Town Hall of Sevilla to unblock the largest real estate development in the Andalucían capital at the moment.
That project is going to be located in Palmas Altas and will comprise more than 2,800 homes, of which 2,200 will be constructed by Metrovacesa. In terms of investment, access and the urbanisation of the land, the Spanish property developer is going to invest €60 million, funds that will come from a corporate loan that it signed with seven entities at the end of 2017.
