Aedas Homes has initiated operations in Zaragoza, acquiring a plot of land in the neighbourhood of the AVE train station. The purchase from the public company Zaragoza Alta Velocidad (ZAV) involves an investment of 19.3 million euros and will result in 198 new homes.
The firm currently has 4,232 homes one sale throughout Spain and enough land to build another 15,000. Aedas also acquired more land in area, though it declined to reveal details.
The plot the firm acquired is located between Delicias station and Avenida Navarra. The asset’s surface area is 5,821 square meters, with a buildable area of 27,956 m2. Zoning in the area allows for the construction of four buildings, with a maximum height of 19 floors.

The company Zaragoza Alta Velocidad is going to receive at least €15,972,060 from the sale of a plot of land in the future AVE neighbourhood. That is the highest price offered in the auction for the plot, known as block 6, which is located next to the Delicias intermodal station in Zaragoza.
Assuming no last minute surprises, the winner of the auction will be the company SPV Reoco 1, which is the firm behind which one of the giants of the residential property sector in Spain likes to hide, namely Aedas Homes. It will be the listed company’s first venture into Zaragoza, although it already has a presence in Madrid, Sevilla and Valencia, amongst others.
Nevertheless, according to sources close to the operation, the auction has not been closed yet, and the other two competing firms Refacleta S.L. and Innovación and Desarrollo Asistencial (de Logroño) are still in with a real chance.
The plot measures 5,821.2 m2 and has a buildability of 27,956 m2, with capacity for 198 flats. Construction on the site, the second real estate development to be built in the AVE neighbourhood, is expected to begin later this year.
