Grosvenor Europe snaps up third residential development in desirable Chamberí district of Madrid
Grosvenor Europe (Grosvenor), one of the four operating companies of the privately-owned international property group, Grosvenor Group Limited, has acquired its third site for residential development in the sought-after Chamberí district of Madrid, consolidating its position in the market.
Grosvenor will develop 15 exclusive apartments and two penthouses on Calle de García de Paredes, in consultation with the prestigious architectural firm Cano and Escario. Located on a 333 sqm site, the seven storey scheme will also offer two additional underground parking levels, and a lobby, gym and cycle parking on the street level. The design will preserve the original façade of the first three floors of the building, which dates to the beginning of the 20th Century.
García de Paredes is a quiet street in the Chamberí neighbourhood, one of the most desirable in Madrid. It benefits from being a few minutes’ walk to the popular Parque de Canal de Isabel II and Teatros Canal, as well as close to various transport links, including the Metro.
The deal falls within Grosvenor’s joint venture with Amcorp Properties Berhad (Amprop), which recently announced the expansion of its partnership agreement, increasing its development capacity to over €200m.
García de Paredes is the third residential site the partnership has acquired in the Chamberí district of Madrid, following the acquisition in 2017 of two residential buildings on the corner of Calle de Santa Engracia and Calle de General Arrando, and on Calle de Modesto Lafuente, close to Calle de Jose Abascal. The joint venture’s first acquisition was a site on Calle de Jorge Juan in the fashionable Salamanca neighbourhood, which is being developed into seven exclusive apartments and a rare private garden.
