17 January 2019 – Eje Prime
Pryconsa is remaining strong in its commitment to the Spanish residential market. The property developer is planning to build at least 1,285 homes by 2020, located across the Community of Madrid as well as in the municipalities of Cáceres and Valladolid, according to sources at the company speaking to Eje Prime.
During the course of this year, the company is going to launch fourteen developments, containing a total of 727 homes, located in different parts of the Community of Madrid (such as Alcalá de Henares, the Puerto Hierro area, Torrejón de Ardoz, Boadilla del Monte and Vicálvaro), as well as in Cáceres and Valladolid.
On the other hand, in 2020, Pryconsa is going to start work on the construction of 558 homes, spread across six developments and located in the city of Madrid and the surrounding areas (Alcalá de Henares, Vicálvaro and Carabanchel). Nevertheless, as the group explains, “it is most likely that during this year, the number of projects started will increase”.
In addition, the company has the objective of handing over 561 new homes in 2019, 1,196 in 2020 and another 1,107 in 2021. For now, Pryconsa has the intention of focusing on the centre of the country, although it does not rule out entering other cities soon. “It will all depend on the situation and on the opportunities in the market, but that will happen from 2021 onwards”, say the sources.
Currently, Pryconsa has its headquarters in Madrid and operates delegations in Valladolid, Sevilla, Ayamonte and Valencia. The company, which has a workforce of 500, recently settled in the Mediterranean city, to open a Prygesa office, one of its firms specialising in the development of homes.
More than fifty years in the Spanish real estate sector
Founded in 1965, Pryconsa is a company that spans the entire construction cycle: from the purchase of land to the construction of assets and their sale. Besides the residential sector, the group also works in other segments, and is present in the hotel, retail and office sectors through its Socimi Saint Croix Holding Immobilier.
The Socimi, constituted in December 2011, is the owner of six hotels, twelve office buildings, thirteen retail premises and one logistics centre, most of which are located in the Community of Madrid, the group’s main area of operation.
Led by Marco Colomer, Pryconsa is one of the great survivors of the real estate crisis that Spain suffered from 2007. Nowadays, the company continues to be one of the largest residential property developers in the country, with more than 54,000 assets delivered by the end of 2018.
