Just one year ago we started to sell Illa del Mar flats. Illa del Mar is an exclusive residential complex in the Barcelona city seafront. It is placed in the Diagonal Mar quarter. Diagonal Mar is a newly built quarter of Barcelona, it was created due to the celebration of the Forum de les Cultures in 2004. Its name comes from the enlarging of the main avenue which crosses Barcelona city, Avinguda Diagonal, to the Mediterranean sea. It is a residential area based in residential complexes facing the sea. This area is surrounded by a public green park called Diagonal Mar, designed by the known architects Enric Miralles and Benedetta Tagliabue. It is the third bigger green area in Barcelona city. Diagonal Mar also belongs to 22@ district, where several TIC, Media and Design companies are based. We can also find other unique design buildings like Torre Agbar and Centre de Convencions.
Illa del Mar complex has 252 dwellings distributed in two towers linked by a linear low-rise structure. The project was design by the MSAA Architecture Group. South tower has 25 floors and is the closest tower to the beach. This tower has six dwellings per floor, all of them with large terraces where you can see the sea. There are four, three and two bedrooms flats. Linking structure has three floors and their dwellings have two terraces. North tower has 21 floors, there are four flats per floor, and all of them have three bedrooms. From all terraces you can enjoy the fantastic city and sea views.
There is a beautiful and quality communal area. It is composed by two swimming pools, a fitness centre with sauna, a paddle tennis court, a polyvalent room, where activities like yoga, children parties, etc, are organized by the neighbours, and a two level parking area with storage rooms.
In May 2011 we were commissioned to sell the remaining 72 dwellings. In one year we have exceeded half of the sales. We have sold a total amount of 36,5 Million €. We have done a lot of different selling and marketing actions. We started organizing two exclusive open doors weekends focused in VIPs clients. Both weekends were quite successful and allowed us to sell a significant number of flats. From then to nowadays our sell actions are focused mainly in the foreign market. Most of the sales have been done to foreign people, coming to Illa del Mar because you cannot find other flats like this in Barcelona city.
