We present Gran Canaria, a new development loan1 project, which consists of granting a loan to a project developer for the funding of the construction and development costs of twenty apartments and one commercial unit in Gran Canaria, Spain.
REASONS TO INVEST IN GRAN CANARIA
- First project with a mortgage guarantee: it is the right granted to investors over a property so that in the event that the developer fails to comply with the payment commitment or fails to pay the debt, the investors can execute the mortgage guarantee to recover their money. The legislation governing Participatory Finance Platforms in Spain prevents them from taking guarantees of any kind on behalf of investors. For this reason, Housers will use a Guarantee Agent in its projects with mortgage guarantees. The chosen Guarantee Agent is Bondholders;
- Seven apartments were already reserved;
- The construction work has already begun;
The project is located in Gran Canaria, an island located in the Atlantic Ocean that belongs to the Autonomous Community of the Canary Islands.
Highlights of the location:
- After Tenerife and Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria is the third largest Canary Island in the Atlantic;
- It has over 500 beaches with white sand and blue waters, virgin bays surrounded by wild nature, family beaches with all kinds of services and urban bays with shops, bars and restaurants;
- It presents a subtropical climate, with long, sunny days and temperatures between 19º and 25º all year round;
- It is one of the most important tourist destinations in Spain. It has places of great interest, both in terms of tourism, landscape and culture. The highlight places are: the Cathedral of Santa Ana, the Roque Nublo, the church San Juan Butista and the Dunes of Maspalomas, a special nature reserve located in the south of the island.
The opportunity foresees the construction of 20 apartments and one commercial unit. The total built area is 1.173,93 m2, distributed over 6 floors:
- 21 storage units;
- Commercial unit;
- General access to the building;
- 4 studios per floor;
Last Floor and Below Deck
- 4 duplexes, all of them with one bedroom with bathroom in the upper floor and two of them with large terraces.
All the apartments have an area with bedroom, kitchen and bathroom, and movable partitions that allow the modulation of space and the maximum benefit of all rooms. Contemporary architecture and top quality finishes come together to create an elegant and comfortable structure.
