Building Apartments in the Eixample
Towards the end of the 19th century (1895), a building of immense proportions was erected in the “Ensanche” of Barcelona. One hundred years later, that structure continues to inhabit a privileged place in the city. Not it’s Midtown Apartments Barcelona, after undergoing a total renovation, without disrupting its original architecture.
Midtown Apartments Barcelona, located at the intersection of Casp and Bruc streets, was recently restored and converted into an authentic second-home residential building, maintaining all of the structure’s original architectural features. This exclusive building is home to 30 1, 2, and 3-bedroom apartments spanning between 49 and 106 m2. The apartments are located across five floors, and the building’s rooftop features a private pool and solarium.
Just across the street, at 48 Casp, is the Casa Calvet, one of the hidden gems of the city’s star architect, Antoni Gaudí. This impressive and little-known building was erected between 1898 and 1900, almost the same years that the Midtown Apartments building was constructed. In fact, despite the universal fame of the premier Catalan architect, Gaudí received only one award in his entire life… given in 1900, in the inaugural annual competition for best building, a prize conferred by the Barcelona City Hall, to honor the achievement of Casa Calvet.
Some of the world’s most famous and spectacular properties sit just steps away from Midtown Apartments Barcelona: the Pedrera and the world-renowned Casa Batlló and Casa Lleó i Morera, gracing the Paseo de Gracia, the Casa de les Punxes just a few blocks away, and of course, the indispensable Sagrada Familia.
