Catella Asset Management Iberia negotiates the lease of 5,300 square metres for a data centre in the Sant Cugat Green building in Barcelona

Sant Cugat Green, owned by a Singaporean investor, is managed by Catella AM Iberia from 2019. The long-term lease agreement has been signed with OXIGEN DATA CENTER.

Catella Asset Management Iberia (Catella AM Iberia), a firm focused on real estate investment and asset management, has managed the lease of 5,300 sqm in the Sant Cugat Green building in Barcelona, where the data centre of the joint venture of two Spanish technology companies will be located. The owner of this and four other buildings in Spain is a real estate investment company listed in Singapore.


The lease represents approximately 20% of the total rental area of the asset.


The 5,300 square metre space is located in the Sant Cugat Green building in Barcelona, a modern, practical and sustainable building managed by Catella AM Iberia since 2019. It is located in a relevant socio-economic area, within a modern and technological environment and less than 30 minutes drive from Barcelona airport. The space used to be a data centre operated by relevant companies in the market, but since 2016 it has no longer been operational. The good characteristics of the space in terms of location and connectivity have been key to upgrade an old space into a modern "Tier 3" with a starting point power of 5MW and green footprint.


With this new contract, the asset, with a gross rental area of 26,200 square metres, now has almost 100% occupancy.


Eduardo Guardiola, Managing Partner of Catella AM Iberia, says: "We see a great opportunity in this segment due to the dependence on new technologies and the massive use of the internet in hyper-connected societies. We are proud that technology and cybersecurity providers choose one of our managed buildings to offer their services".


With this deal, Catella AM Iberia strengthens its relationship with one of its most important clients.
