Avenida Diagonal is one of the best known areas not only in Barcelona but throughout Spain. It crosses the city from east to west and significantly speeds up traffic in the Catalan capital. At its eastern end, there is the neighbourhood of Diagonal Mar, one of the top urban spaces with the greatest potential for growth in the coming years. As a commercial and residential area that's very close to the sea, Diagonal Mar maintains a delicate balance between the rapid connection with the urban centre and the purely maritime environments.

To take advantage of the opportunities in the area, there is nothing better than to be interested in the different flats for sale that Engel & Völkers manages in Diagonal Mar. All of them are also located in the port section of the former Villa Olímpica, in a climate of great tranquility despite The privileged location. Such would be the case of a spectacular 109 sqm apartment constructed exactly in the same year the Olympic games were celebrated. The bright and airy kitchen and the remarkable views are the great assets of a property that stands out as one of the most interesting offers.
The same could be said of an apartment equally well located but with lower height and facing towards the inner part of the city. A property that offers around 200 sqm of living space and has four bedrooms and three bathrooms among other very striking rooms (such as a terrace of more than 10 sqm). The property excels by the high degree of detail as far as qualities are concerned, with heating system, laminate flooring and wooden finishes.
With a slightly different orientation, the next flat for sale has been recently renovated and is licensed for use as a tourist apartment. The permit, which is renewable, lasts until September 2018 so the buyer could still take advantage of the summer campaigns this year and next year. We are talking about an approximate monthly rental of more than 2,000 euros, due to the proximity to the beach and the 110 sqm space available. The apartment was built in 1992.
Finally, we take a trip to the sea with a property on the beachfront. Refurbished less than two years ago, the apartment gives great importance to natural light and features an open-plan living room. The almost 100 sqm living area has been optimised to the maximum, having three bedrooms and two bathrooms decorated with a modern touch. Like most other flats in the area, this one also has a parking space.
