30 July 2019 – Richard D. K. Turner
Pryconsa, the Colomer family’s developer, and SVPGlobal, which owns the Benidorm highrise, are bidding to take the last of the three plots being sold by Atlético de Madrid’s Operación Calderón. The first two plots of land went to a joint venture by Azora and CBRE GI, in a deal worth just over 100 millions of euros.
Stoneweg’s partnership with Hines had been seen as likely to win the bidding for the last plot of land, but an unexpected offer from Vivenio and the Dutch fund APG surpassed their bid at the last moment. Talks with Vivenio subsequently broke down when the firm was unable to secure the necessary financing.
Somewhat late to the party, Strategic Value Partners (SVPGlobal) and Pryconsa have both also now also expressed interest in submitting bids. The firms are analysing the asset, which Atlético de Madrid is selling for €3,150/m2. Bids are expected this week.
If neither of the two manages to reach an agreement with the football club, Atlético de Madrid is expected to go back to Stoneweg-Hines and Vivenio for final proposals, looking to finalise a deal shortly.
