The 10,160 m² building occupies an entire block in the centre of the city of Valencia.  The project consists of the development of a student residence in Valencia.

Princeton is currently analysing new investment opportunities in this sector in the main Spanish cities, such as Madrid and Barcelona, confirming the return of international confidence into the real estate market in Spain.


This acquisition positions Princeton as an investor and “avant-garde” developer in the real estate market in Spain and is a further addition to their portfolio in Spain.  Princeton’s first property, a 10,600 m² in Madrid, 2 Fomento, near the historic Gran Via was acquired in 2015.
