Amancio Ortega, the founder of Inditex, one of the world’s leading retail empires has acquired the building that used to house the Banesto headquarters on Barcelona’s Plaza Catalunya. The property was acquired for 44 million euros, a modest sum considering the building’s prime location, numbered as Paseo de Gracia 1 and Plaza Catalunya 10. Amancio Ortega had already acquired the retail premises on the ground floor of the building in 2012 for a whopping 86 million euros. These 2,000m2 premises currently house the Apple store.
