Taylor Wimpey España and La Cala Resort join forces to create the Costa del Sol’s ultimate residential golf complex

  • More than €21 million to be invested
  • 700 direct and indirect jobs to be created
  • 48 apartments and 55 houses to be constructed over next 5 years

Taylor Wimpey Spain, a subsidiary of property developer Taylor Wimpey PLC (a listed company in the UK FTSE 100) and La Cala Resort, the company behind the prestigious complex of three golf courses and hotels in Mijas owned by FBD (the publicly traded Irish insurance company), have signed a long-term partnership that will allow them to develop 48 apartments and 55 houses over the next five years, with a total estimated investment of €21 million.

The partnership seals La Cala Resort’s position in the Costa del Sol, not just as a golf destination but also as one of the most attractive places for international tourist to visit and reside. The three excellent 18 hole golf courses, the exclusive hotel and four-star spa and the prime location just 30 minutes from Malaga airport, provide the perfect setting for capturing the growing European demand for second homes on the Costa del Sol.

Taylor Wimpey and La Cala Resort began working together in 2014, with the development of Miraval – a complex of 60 luxury apartments overlooking the golf course and sea. After 12 months of activity, more than 50% of Miraval’s properties had been purchased. In fact, the resort proved so popular that work was accelerated in order to provider owners with their new homes earlier in 2016.

This high level of interest from overseas buyers has prompted both companies to enhance and extend their working relationship. Thus January 2016 will see work begin simultaneously on a new complex of 55 townhouses and one of 48 apartments. The two developments will involve a total investment of €21 million over the coming five years.
