Värde Partners Announces Plans for Via Célere to Acquire Land Bank Assets from Aelca
Värde Partners, the global alternative investment firm, today announced plans for Via Célere, a residential property developer in Spain, to acquire the land bank assets of Aelca, another residential developer and asset manager in Spain.
Following the transaction, Via Célere will be the largest residential real estate developer in Spain with a gross asset value of over EUR2.2 billion, positioned to deliver an estimated 2,000 housing units in 2019 with the ability to deliver 5,000 units by 2021. Värde will own 75 percent of Via Célere.
In 2017, Via Célere merged with Dospuntos, a residential developer that was created as a result of the Värde-led restructuring of Grupo San Jose. At that time, Juan Antonio Gómez-Pintado assumed the role of CEO of the combined entities. Today’s transaction further strengthens Via Célere’s leading market position.
“Via Célere is remarkably well positioned to focus exclusively on building an impressive portfolio of best-in-class homes and flats as it will not need to purchase a single plot of land to hit its delivery targets over the next three years,” said Hector Serrat, Managing Director at Värde Partners. “We are excited to continue to partner with Juan Antonio and the entire management team.”
“Värde has extensive experience in the residential development space, including owning and operating home builders across Europe and the U.S., and we are fully committed to residential development in Spain,” added Francisco Milone, Head of European Real Estate at Värde Partners. “The Spanish homebuilding market remains fragmented and in need of further consolidation by scalable operators with a track-record of delivering on time and on budget.”
Värde will retain full ownership of Aelca, and continue to partner with Jose Juan Martin and Javier Gomez, the founders of Aelca, to support the company as an independent manager and promoter of residential properties in Spain. Post-transaction, Javier de Oro will assume the role of CEO of Aelca. Värde has a long-standing relationship with Javier from his tenure as head of the real estate division of Aliseda, the exclusive servicer of Banco Poplular’s distressed real estate assets. Värde sold its controlling stake in Aliseda to Banco Santander in 2017.

Residence- and citizenship-by-investment programs have firmly established themselves over the past few years as the new frontier in terms of freedom, flexibility, and future-readiness, both for the countries issuing these programs and for the individual investors participating in them. The societal and economic value these programs generate is undisputed. The investment migration industry as a whole is currently grossing roughly USD 18 billion per year, with an expectation that it will hit the USD 20 billion mark very soon. Foreign direct investment (FDI) is now considered the lifeblood of economic growth for many developing and recovering smaller countries around the world. As such, the number of investment migration programs has been increasing rapidly, from just a handful of programs in the 1980s and 1990s to over 100 countries that now have investment migration provisions in their laws. There are more than 60 active programs today, with Moldova and Montenegro — both fast-growing Eu
