Hines Spain has grown to become one of the main national players in the property sector, with significant assets across both Madrid and Barcelona and boots on the ground in both locations.
The firm has a strong team of local experts with a long and diverse tenure in the real estate market. The company recently celebrated its 25th anniversary, having launched its Spanish platform in 1996. Hines redefined the city of Barcelona with its major, mixed use and city-defining project, Diagonal Mar. In a place renowned for its unique visual iconography, the company was able to combine the traditional with the contemporary to create iconic landmarks.
Embedded into the Hines’ Spanish portfolio and strategy is ensuring the highest standards of sustainability, innovation and ESG principles are met, with a strong focus on social impact and community engagement. Its existing portfolio spans the entire real estate spectrum and comprises offices, prime high street retail, logistics, residential for rent, student housing, mixed use and hotels.
With a pioneering attitude to responding to market trends and opportunities, Hines Spain - led by Vanessa Gelado, Senior Managing Director and Country Head of Hines Spain - has recently placed a strong emphasis on the living and logistics sector. Key projects include a multifamily scheme in Valdebebas, a new Madrid based residential for rent turn-key development, PBSA developments Cristobal de Moura and Pallars in Barcelona, and the acquisition of two industrial assets located on the industrial estate of Atalayuela, Madrid.
The office sector remains a strong focus and recent acquisitions include the Banco Sabadell Tower in Barcelona, an iconic office building located at Avenida Diagonal 407. Hines Spain will carry out a comprehensive refurbishment of the building following the highest quality standards to maintain the unique character of the tower, with class A energy efficiency to meet the workplace demands of future tenants.
