The cranes have started work again on the Grand Café, the shopping centre that will form part the La Finca de Madrid residential and golf complex, located in Pozuelo de Alarcón. Specifically, the work resumed on 1 March, after the lockdown due to the pandemic and a lack of available workmen delayed the building work. However, no time has been wasted marketing the new centre.

The project, called La Finca Grand Café, will span a gross leasable area (GLA) of 10,000 m2 and will have premium spaces distributed over three floors (the third floor will house offices), as well as two other underground floors for 600 parking spaces. The design has been carried out by the LAFINCA A + D architecture team, and the project is expected to be ready by spring 2023.
