Agreement with property management agents to strengthen ‘Amunt persianes’

27/07/2021

The Official Association of Property Managers for Barcelona and Lleida (CAFBL) is joining in with the ‘Amunt Persianes’ initiative to revitalise ground-floor business premises. The two-year deal, with an option of a further two, will enable the professional body to share information, experiences and criteria for specific strategies and action, help attract premises of this type and collaborate in a rental pool for them.

The agreement includes the participation of over 2,400 members of the association in valuing ground-floor premises at a maximum unit cost per valuation of 160 euros (inc. VAT). This will be covered by Barcelona Activa, through a specific fund created for this purpose. The agents will also help with an approximate valuation of renovation work.

‘Amunt persianes’ has a budget of 17 million euros to promote the reactivation, diversification and balance of empty ground-floor premises in the city, according to the commercial uses and particular needs of each neighbourhood.

The measure is part of the plan to recover and relaunch the city, with a special fund of 87 million euros to provide support to the manufacturing network and employment
