The international law firm, DLA Piper, will change its headquarters at the end of this year to occupy the entire building at Castellana 39, a 4,128 sqm building owned by the insurance company Allianz. The building is currently occupied by Abertis, which will vacate the building at the end of June.
After two decades in Castellana 35, occupying three floors of the building, the firm plans to begin renovations on 1 July in order to move and occupy the entire new building in December, a move that also coincides with its 20th anniversary.
The transaction has been advised by DLA Piper’s partner in charge of real estate, Orson Alcocer, and Knight Frank, a leading international private real estate consultancy.
“The idea of changing the building of our headquarters in Madrid stems from a desire to provide a better working environment for our professionals and clients. This move, to a complete building, will provide us with a more modern and sustainable working environment in which we will have more open, luminous and flexible spaces that prioritise energy efficiency, air quality and thermal, acoustic and environmental comfort,” said Jesús Zapata, Partner of DLA Piper in Spain.
