“Our intervention in a pre-existing space sets out to enhance it, to dialogue with it, not just to add an indifferent new layer to the underlying base. In a central place, open to the city and to an incredible courtyard at the centre of a street block, with large trees and vegetation, dialogue with the outside (with the city and with nature) also constitutes a thread in the design.”

Plaza Ruiz Picasso Building News

MERLIN Properties, the Madrid-based largest and most technologically advanced REIT and a leading developer and operator of green assets, announced today a long-term strategic partnership with EDGE Next.

Plaza Ruiz Picasso Madrid building design

The project will begin with the last major project of the Landmark plan, Plaza Ruiz Picasso in Madrid, with a total GLA of 36,899 sqm. Plaza Ruiz Picasso plans to incorporate the latest in smart technology, including EDGE’s own platform – EDGE Next – to optimise the office building’s performance, and to make it smarter, healthier, and more sustainable.

The platform uses multiple sensors and data sources to not only gather information, but also to deliver valuable and actionable insights to enable buildings, companies, and people to thrive. Tenants can also make use of a building app, which enables users to efficiently control basic features of their work environment, such as light and temperature. The asset is set to achieve LEED Platinum and WELL Core & Shell Gold certifications. In addition, it aims to become one of the first buildings in Spain to obtain both the WiredScore and the SmartScore certification, a certificate that represents the smart connectivity of the building.

Furthermore, EDGE Next will help MERLIN implement sustainable and technological initiatives in their office portfolio, rolling out a multi-year project that will optimize their developments through the use of EDGE Next’s smart technology. As part of this strategy, the EDGE Next platform will be piloted in one of MERLIN´s existing buildings starting in 2021, with further rollouts expected in the near-term future.

MERLIN Properties SOCIMI, S.A. (MC:MRL) is the largest real estate company trading on the Spanish Stock Exchange. Specialized in the acquisition and management of commercial property in the Iberian region. MERLIN Properties mainly invests in offices, shopping centers and logistics facilities, within the Core and Core Plus segments, forming part of the benchmark IBEX-35, Euro STOXX 600, FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Global Real Estate, GPR Global Index, GPR-250 Index, and MSCI Small Caps indices.
