Muelle Uno & City Centre
The creation of Muelle Uno, the attractive leisure area of the port – a popular area for a Sunday stroll has improved the value of property in the area.
With all this and more, this friendly provincial capital is attracting 1.3 million visitors a year. The city’s popularity as a tourist destination is driving up demand for quality residential and investment properties – and attracting buyers both locally and internationally.
The elegant streets of the historical centre have mostly been pedestrianized, and stunning old buildings have been tastefully refurbished while respecting the facades, and in both the centre. Many of Málaga’s most beloved historical buildings have been lovingly converted into sleek new “loft” style apartments which offer the highest standards of modern Mediterranean city living.
Modern towers of striking apartments and penthouses are appearing in the city and on the beachfront, while in the surrounding suburbs beautiful new builds are offering unprecedented levels of luxury in the Málaga property market.
World Expo 2027 a firm candidate
The city of Málaga is fast positioning itself as a “technopolis”, and centre for remote working, attracting global giants to invest in Málaga – with e.g. Google’s new cyber security centre located in the heart of the city.
Should Málaga be selected as Spain’s candidate for the World Expo 2027, it would impact the local economy by an estimated 2,9 billion and place Málaga firmly on the world stage. Add to this Malaga’s strong cultural identity, evident in the annual Semana Santa processions at Easter and the flamboyant feria in August, and the uniqueness of this city is magnetic.
All of this translates into excellent returns on investment for opting to buy property in Málaga, with excellent tourist rental potential.
