Arcano, the leading independent financial advisory firm specialized in investment banking and asset management, has completed the comprehensive rehabilitation of the property that housed the EFE Agency headquarters on Calle Espronceda 32 in Madrid, converting it into the first residential building with all its parking spaces electrified.
The project represents a milestone for sustainable mobility, as it includes 100 electrified parking spaces for the owners of these exclusive homes and 123 for non-resident users. In this way, the firm continues to develop differential projects capable of providing added value to investors, for which the sustainability approach is essential.
Arcano acquired the building through its second real estate fund AVA II, in order to convert the old office building into 50 Premium homes and a commercial space. The building has just over 9,500 sqm of constructed area divided into eight floors, 223 parking spaces and 50 storage rooms.
The location is another of the differentiating factors of the project. Espronceda street, in the Ríos Rosas neighborhood of the Chamberí district, is a residential area of high demand and consolidated. A few meters from Paseo de la Castellana, the main artery of the city and Calle Ponzano, it has all the services and is known for its many restaurants. It is also very close to Nuevos Ministerios, the city's communications hub with direct access to the metro network, suburban areas and the airport.
Estudio Lamela, the prestigious architecture studio, has been at the forefront of the design of this property in which the bright spaces and large terraces play a leading role. The exclusivity of the homes is conceived under the highest standards of quality and comfort, with the utmost attention in the choice of materials and the premise of a distinctive, elegant and timeless design. In addition, the space has more than 700 sqm of garden, a large swimming pool, gym, wellness area, lounge space and meeting areas.
The installation of all the charging points for the 223 electrified parking spaces has been carried out with the latest technology by CargaTuCoche, the charging service platform for electric vehicles.
On the other hand, Colliers has been in charge of marketing the promotion, designated from the beginning as the exclusive Sales Advisor. The commercialization of Espronceda 32 has been a success, since all the houses have been sold and only two penthouses with south orientation towards the garden and the pool remain available. In addition to the qualities that all the homes and common spaces of Espronceda 32 have, these exclusives include a covered terrace on the same floor and another 70 sqm outdoor terrace on the roof garden.
