Hines Tripark Las Rozas the first property in Spain to achieve LEED Gold (ES)

The Madrid office of Hines, the international real estate firm, announced today that Tripark Las Rozas has received Gold certification under the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED® for Core & Shell (CS) rating system. The property is the first in Spain to have achieved Gold certification.


Tripark Las Rozas is a 32,702 m² Class A office complex.

Tripark Las Rozas is a three-building, 351,873 ft² (32,702 m²), Class A office complex located within the Las Rozas Business Park in northwest Madrid. All three 117,338 ft² (10,900 m²) buildings are situated at a highly visible intersection of the A-6 motorway and the M-50 ring road. Hines developed the property in 2010 for the Hines European Development Fund I.

Hines Managing Director Fernando Arenas said, "This certification gives Hines a strategic advantage in the Spanish real estate market where awareness of sustainability, environmental performance and occupant productivity is growing among leading tenants."

Sustainable features include: façade design solutions to reduce thermal gain; floorplate depths that maximize natural light; photovoltaic energy; photocatalytic filters installed in air conditioning ducts; non-toxic materials; bicycle storage with changing rooms and shower facilities; and water-saving technologies, among other things.

Hines entered the Spanish market with a strategic investment in Barcelona in 1995. That investment, known as Diagonal Mar, centered on 84 acres of land fronting the Mediterranean Sea. The project is one of Europe's largest mixed-use developments totaling over four million square feet consisting of a retail and leisure center, five residential phases, three hotels, three office buildings and the third-largest public park in Barcelona.

In 2000, Hines expanded its operations in Spain by opening a Madrid office, and in 2004, a Marbella office. Today, Hines Spain has more than 25 employees involved in development, leasing, financing and asset management.
