This property, on a corner, is situated on the most famous pedestrian-only shopping street in Spain, and comprises a total of 2,121 m2 over an attic and five storeys. Built in the 1940’s in the last century, the property is subject to an integrated renovation to be completed in summer and will transform it into the ‘flagship’ for an Inditex store. When work is complete, the property will receive LEED certification for energy efficiency.
