The German fund, which is managed by Sven Schoel in Spain, plans to deploy over 350 million in the city of Valencia and develop new 1,300 flats. Aquila’s Spanish real estate development company, AQ Acentor, plans to carry out what is undoubtedly the largest residential urban development projected by a single entity in Spain.
Aquila Capital entered the Spanish market in 2014 through a JV with Inmoglaciar by means of which they acquired Sepes’ large land bank for €50M. The two companies put an end to their alliance last July after Cerberus’ majority investment in Inmoglaciar. Following investment meant the departure of the shareholders of Grupo Inmoglaciar from the companies they managed jointly with Aquila Capital, dissociating themselves from projects such as Gardens La Moraleja y Residencial Can Trabal Golf, which are now managed entirely by Aquila Capital under their new brand, AQ Accentor.
AQ Accentor has a portfolio of projects worth over €800M and a pipeline of over 3,000 new homes, of which around 500 are expecting delivery during 2018. The company has a team of over 40 professionals and is developing projects in Madrid, Barcelona and Malaga.
