A NEW EMBLEM
FOR MADRID

From the times of the Habsburgs
to the present day, Madrid
has prided itself on its
architectural legacy.
That's why returning
the splendour of yesteryear
to its historic buildings
is a dream that
Centro Canalejas Madrid
wants to make a reality.

A HISTORY-MAKING
PROJECT

Centro Canalejas Madrid is now
an emblem of the restored heart of Madrid
in the 21st century. A unique project
that recovers seven historic buildings
in different styles to create a splendid
complex that will be a landmark of
state-of-the-art leisure and tourism.
To this end, Grupo Villar Mir, OHL
Desarrollos and Mohari are carrying out an ambitious
architectural and engineering
project whose technical complexity
has required a rethinking of certain processes
and the creation of innovative solutions.

Details of the project

REMEMBERING THE PAST

From the classical beauty of the
Palacio de la Equitativa at Alcalá 14
to the Art Deco style of
Alcalá 10, the seven buildings
of Centro Canalejas Madrid
speak of a city that has known how
to adapt to the times. Hence its history
is intertwined with that of that
stately and cosmopolitan Madrid that makes us
proud and to which we wish to contribute.

THE WORK
OF ARTISANS

The monumental façades of Centro
Canalejas Madrid, which have dressed
up the Carrera de San Jerónimo,
Plaza de Canalejas and Sevilla and
Alcalá streets since yesteryear, are being
rehabilitated thanks to Grupo Villar Mir, OHL
Desarrollos and Mohari in a clear commitment to
preserving the historical-architectural
heritage of the city centre.
Execution of the work required an
enormous effort in the restoration of more
than 16,000 ornamental elements,
which will once again decorate this
space, giving it character.

A LOOK
TO THE FUTURE

In addition to a luxurious
Four Seasons hotel, the chain's
first in Spain, the complex
will have an upscale
residential section;
an exclusive shopping
centre in line with the
latest European trends;
and a gourmet space that
will serve as a showcase
for the finest gastronomy.

Various motives spurred our decision to undertake the Canalejas operation: to resume
investment in important real-estate projects in Spain and to rehabilitate certain
singular buildings that would contribute to reactivating the most emblematic axis of the capital.
Our decision has borne fruit because since then there have been important operations involving
singular buildings in the same zone, which will revitalise and promote the tourist, cultural
and commercial appeal of the centre of the capital of Spain.
