HOUSTON, TEXAS - Hines, the international real estate firm, announced recently that Scott P. Murray has been promoted to senior property manager for Diagonal Mar, Hines' four million-square-foot mixed-use development currently under construction in Barcelona, Spain. He will oversee the retail positioning, grand opening, marketing, and operations of the new landmark Diagonal Mar Centre retail and leisure center. A 13-year Hines veteran, Murray will relocate to Barcelona from Houston in February of this year.

For the last three years, Murray has served as the Senior General Manager for Hines' Uptown Retail Property Group. Prior to that, he was the General Manager for the Galleria in Houston and Operations Manager of Galleria, Dallas.

Phase One of the project, which is currently under construction, includes the 936,000-square-foot retail mall including a large Alcampo Hypermarket, a 20-screen AMC cinema, 240 other stores and five levels of underground parking. Phases Two through Six will include 2.6 million square feet of residential space. Phase Seven will consist of a five-star luxury hotel and spa, and Phase Eight will consist of 430,000 square feet of "Class A" office space. As part of the 10-year project, Hines is also developing Barcelona's third largest public park on the Diagonal Mar site.
