The origin of Meridia Capital Partners

In 2001, Mr Faus assembled a consortium of investors to acquire the real estate portfolio HOVISA, in Barcelona, for €235m. The portfolio included:

  • Hotel Arts (485 rooms), operated by The Ritz-Carlton
  • Office space (12,374 sqm)
  • Retail space (13,084 sqm)
  • 600 parking spaces
  • Building site (3,611 sqm)

The origin and DNA of Meridia Capital Partners

Mr. Faus was appointed General Partner and Manager of the company.

In 2004, two groups decided to exit their investment due to the excellent profits obtained thus far. Mr Faus stayed as investor and brought in other investors, sowing the seeds for what would in the future become Meridia Capital Partners.

Finally the asset was sold in 2006 to GIC, Host Hotels & Resorts and Stichting Pensioenfonds ABP for €417m – at the time,the highest price ever paid by a single real estate asset in Spain.
