The building in Carrer de l’Encuny

Barcelona City Council acquired the building of 114 protected flats at C/ Encuny, 7, in the neighbourhood of La Marina del Prat Vermell at the end of 2018. The building was owned by the entity Proviure CZF Parc d’Habitatges, a company formed by the BBVA (50%) and the Zona Franca Consortium (CZF) (50%). At the time it was purchased there were 56 homes with tenants with current contracts and 58 empty flats. The building also has ground-floor commercial premises and 76 parking spaces.

Since purchasing the building, the City Council has subrogated the 56 existing rental contracts (although one of these homes later became available) and drawn up 34 new contracts, 27 of them corresponding to the Emergency Committee, 6 to special contingents and one for another tenant. The rest of the vacant homes (11 in all) are in the process of being allocated to the Emergency Committee, to general and special contingents, the Inclusion Committee and others affected.
