Culmia has acquired an area of about 120.000 sqm in the urban development of La Solana de Valdebebas in Madrid, where it plans to invest 92,7 million euros in the start-up of one of its next residential projects.
With an urban planning in which environmental and sustainability criteria are prioritized, the Solana de Valdebebas will link La Moraleja, the airport and the Valdebebas park itself. As a whole, this development consists of 1.096.164 sqm of land on which a total of 1.393 homes will be built: 756 free and 637 protected. Specifically, it is located north of the city of Madrid and borders the municipality of Alcobendas.
It is an ecourbanism project that seeks maximum energy efficiency with minimum impact. In this way, it combines the organization and arrangement of buildings with natural spaces. The reforestation of the area, together with the orientation of the building to capture the wind and controlled sunlight, will be essential to reduce energy consumption. It is also planned that the water system will be preserved through drainage and energy will be generated through solar capture.
Currently, Culmia has six developments in the Community of Madrid that represent 450 units in commercialization and a portfolio of 2.200 more homes. «The company exemplifies with this operation its commitment to land management in strategic and high-demand areas with a project that is distinguished by sustainability and the defense of the integration of natural spaces in urban planning», says Javier del Castillo, Central and North territorial director of the company.
Since 2013, Culmia has delivered more than 5.000 homes in Spain, and has a marketing portfolio of 80 developments and 4.000 units, as well as land to develop 11.000 more homes.
