Parque Arauco announces alliance with AssetPlan and acquisition of its first multifamily project in Chile

SANTIAGO, Chile–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today Parque Arauco announced the signing of a binding agreement with the real estate company, Activa, for the acquisition of a residential rental building located on Juan Mitjans street, in the Macul district, in Santiago, Chile. The 20-story tower includes 165 apartments, 85 parking spaces, and additional storage spaces. It has been in operation since the end of 2021 and currently has an occupancy level of over 95%. Designed from the beginning with the multifamily concept in mind, the building has a swimming pool, gym, multipurpose room, coworking space, laundry room, barbecue areas, and bicycle racks.

The operation implies a net investment of approximately USD 17 million and is subject to the usual due diligence process, which is expected to take place before the end of the year.

This multifamily project follows two other projects that were announced by Parque Arauco during the first half of the year in Colombia, including a 132-unit residential rental building in the city of Bogotá that requires an investment of approximately USD 11 million, and a 300-unit building in the city of Medellin that considers an investment of approximately USD 23 million.

“This operation represents our entry into the multifamily business in Chile and is consistent with the two projects announced in Colombia at the beginning of the year. The multifamily format will develop strongly in our region in the coming years and we are very excited about opening this new growth avenue for Parque Arauco, which will complement our natural growth in shopping centers,” stated Eduardo Pérez Marchant, CEO of Parque Arauco.
