It´s a boutique promotion of 27 apartments with all the comfort of a resort on the most sought for kilometre of the Costa del Sol

Marbella, 19th of february 2018. - Benalús, a unique new housing construction on the golden mile, relaunches its project with fresh air and new adaptions to the needs of premium clients. The announcement made by the Marbella town hall at the end of 2017, regarding the unblocking of stalled licences, has put Marbella back into the focus of national and international investors and has revitalized the property market.

When walking or driving past the most sought for kilometre on the Costa del Sol, which links Marbella and Puerto Banús, only one property promotion can be seen standing on this golden mile. It´s Benalús, a 27 luxury apartment project, divided into 3 buildings standing on 9000 square metres of ground, over half of which will be gardens, private and communitarian open spaces.

Benalús is re-activating after the slowdown. The Project had suffered due to the legal instability there had been in the urbanist sector since the supreme tribunal nullified the PGOU in 2015. Now that the airs have cleared around the urban ordination issue, the construction work will begin this June. The director of the project, Sergio Fernández explains; “We are bringing a product of the highest quality to the market, made to satisfy even the most demanding of buyers and adapted to the latest trends and technologies. All preparations have been made to commence with the construction work in June 2018, the project is scheduled to be completed by the spring of 2020”. The statistics show that in the last years second hand housing has dominated the market, however, they also show a progressive reversal of this trend back toward new constructions scheduled for completion between 2019 and 2020.

The international political and economic changes that have taken place have changed the profile of buyers, with the numbers of English and Russian buyers giving way to more Spanish, central European and Nordic buyers. The numbers of Arab buyers have remained stable. “However, given the exceptional location of Benalús, interest has been shown from all over the world”, Fernández adds. It´s a profile of people looking for modern, luxurious constructions with large open air spaces and exclusive communitarian services, a high level of security, privacy and a strategic and privileged location.

During the last years, Benalús has been able to detect and adapt to the new needs of Premium clients, who require the comfort of a resort within their homes. Thanks to this, Benalús holds apartments from 170 to 785 square metres and with a price range of between 1,000,000 and 3,000,000 euros in offer, on one of the few free plots in the area. It´s close to the beaches of

the Mediterranean Sea and has a prime view of the emblematic La Concha Mountain. The urbanization is a closed one with 24 hour security, spa, private and public swimming pools, community solarium, gym and a chill out. All surrounded by 7.000 square metres of green zones belonging to a protected `Cañada Real´.

The promotion of Benalús ( has been done by a prestigious and well consolidated business group from the Basque Country. In the last years they have administrated the promotion of over a thousand properties in different projects. The construction firm owns the plot itself and is the exclusive marketer of the promotion. Confidence is high in the commitment to quality and the bank´s endorsement of down payments. “Our objective is to offer the best possible product to the most demanding client, adding value to the Marbella trademark, which has always stood out because of its exclusiveness and high standard of quality” the project manager concludes.
