Emblematic buildings in Madrid II: Gran Vía 6 Building

Gran Vía is, in many ways, the heart of Madrid. This central artery is not only a crossing point for tens of thousands of pedestrians and drivers every day, but it is also home to some of the most important theatres of the Spanish capital. This area is duly accompanied by properties as emblematic as the Gran Vía Building 6, on which we place our magnifying glass today. This is why both this street and the surrounding areas are a preferred option to buy a house in Madrid.

The Gran Vía 6 complex is a state building erected right at the beginning of the central avenue of Madrid. Its construction dates back to 1917 so it is currently celebrating its first centenary. Like other large estates of the period, the building is mainly dedicated to the residential area, housing a remarkable number of properties with unbeatable views of Gran Vía. Logically, its ground floor is served for commercial purposes. As a matter of interest, between 2007 and 2015, it was the Headquarters of the Consultative Council of the Community of Madrid.

The local authorities had a good taste when selecting the location of the headquarters. The Gran Vía 6 Building is one of the most outstanding examples of Neo-Renaissance architecture in Madrid. This artistic trend, which did not have a great implantation in our country, was a counterpoint to the modernist style in a much more successful way and advocating a more sober aesthetic. As it could not be otherwise, the classical canons as well as their most representative architectural elements (columns and pillars) were restored. In fact, the decor is non-existent beyond the serene beauty of the straight lines.

As main signs of identity, in the complex of houses, protected in its totality by its architectural relevance, stand out the three towers that crown the roof. The most striking of them is the circular floor and counts in turn with a beautiful superior cornice. As a final historical note, the Gran Vía 6 building was commissioned by Marques de Urquijo and was designed by the architects, José María Mendoza (who also designed the Rialto Building and the Headquarters of the General Prosecutor's Office) and José de Aragón.

To share the privileged setting in which this original building is situated without buying a house in Madrid, Engel & Völkers has a spacious apartment for rent in its immediate vicinity. Undoubtedly, the large living room is the great asset that highlights this property, which enjoys excellent natural lighting. Three bedrooms and four bathrooms complete this the property.
