Centro Canalejas Madrid is one of the most successful projects of Desarrollos and it is going to become an icon of Madrid (Spain). The project has required the careful renovation of a set of seven contiguous buildings, located between the streets of Alcalá, Sevilla, Plaza de Canalejas and Carrera de San Jerónimo of the capital of Spain. The buildings, which stand out for their historical-artistic value and for their privileged location in the historical centre of the city, a few metres from the Puerta del Sol, housed decades ago the headquarters of important financial entities. Today they make up an exquisite complex, that unites hotel, residential and commercial uses, and which has transformed the centre of Madrid. Centro Canalejas Madrid, with a surface area of approximately 50,000 square metres above ground and another 30,000 underground, houses the prestigious Four Seasons Hotel, the first of the chain in Spain, with 200 rooms; 22 Four Seasons Branded Residences, high-end dwellings with services from the hotel; Canalejas Shopping Arcade, that houses an exclusive commercial space, in harmony with the most avant-garde European trends, and a gourmet area, designed to provide the best gastronomic experience and, finally, a modern car park, the Parking Centro Canalejas, which offers 400 spaces to the public.
