Strategically situated within the city limits in desirable northern Madrid, Valdebebas is surrounded by consolidated urban areas that are home to premier financial, business, and residential districts. Valdebebas benefits from integration with Madrid’s world-class public transport system and excellent links to its high-capacity motorways, guaranteeing fast connections to anywhere in the city and beyond.
The underlying urban design of Valdebebas centers on the integration of both commercial and residential buildings with large green spaces, local parks and greenways, which provide continuity and connection within the development and with the rest of Madrid.
Mixed-use zoning makes Valdebebas a dynamic and efficient place to live and work. In addition to high-quality residential areas perfectly integrated with offices and hotels, residents of Valdebebas will have viable local commerce and guaranteed access to all necessary public services and facilities.
Valdebebas is now a reality. It is the site of internationally-renowned large scale development initiatives being carried out by the City and Community of Madrid, including the expansion of the IFEMA fairgrounds complex, the construction of the Justice Campus, and a Woodland Park, as well as being home to Real Madrid’s training facilities, and in the near future, a destination shopping centre.
Thanks to its innovative urban design that creates distinctive public spaces for everyone’s enjoyment, the Valdebebas Business Complex blends seamlessly with adjacent residential areas. Valdebebas sets the benchmark in terms of excellence in urban design by providing continuity with the neighbouring Campo de las Naciones business area, making Valdebebas an attractive location for companies seeking a landmark space in which to locate their businesses.
Many leading Spanish and foreign multinationals are headquartered in the vicinity, which is sought after due to its proximity to Madrid’s CBD, modernity, first-rate connections and the benefits and synergies of being located close to leading companies.
The eastern boundary of Valdebebas lies adjacent to Terminal 4 at Madrid-Barajas International Airport, which will soon have an AVE (high speed rail) station and a direct link to Valdebebas via a stunning landmark bridge, affording users of this innovative business area quick and easy connections to destinations outside Madrid.
One of the core values of Valdebebas is social responsibility. Since the project’s inception, guaranteeing accessibility to all people who live and work in the area has been a principal goal. This action policy formally materialized in 2006 when the Board signed an agreement with the ONCE Foundation, Spain’s national association for people with disabilities, to carry out a thorough analysis of all aspects of the project and implement urban design strategies to make Valdebebas and its public spaces accessible for everyone, regardless of age or disability.
At Valdebebas street activity will thrive. With the predominance of pedestrian and meeting areas, which link the existing variety of uses, new social spaces for all times of the day are generated in the city.
