As a mark of its strategic importance for the Algarve region, the Secretary of State for Internationalisation, Eurico Brilhante Dias visited Vanguard Property’s Bayline Project in Armação de Pêra on 9 July 2020.
The visit followed an invitation sent by Vanguard Properties when the Secretary of State was accompanied by his advisor, Marta Costa and also involved the Mayor of Silves Municipal Council, Rosa Cristina da Palma, and the Executive Vice President of the Portuguese Association of Real Estate Developers and Investors, Hugo Santos Ferreira.
Shown around the development by the managing partners of Vanguard Properties, Claude and Alexandre Berda and José Cardoso Botelho, the visiting committee had the opportunity to undertake a site visit and see the full scale of the works underway on this project which is slated to be completed in 2022 with an investment which has topped €90 million.
Also present were Miguel Saraiva, Founder and President of the architects studio Saraiva + Associados, which designed the project, Pedro Ferreirinha, Partner at Vieira de Almeida & Associados, Margarida Almeida, leader and founder of Amazing Evolution, and the chief engineers responsible for the construction of this magnificent development, António Rodrigues and Paulo Carapuça, leaders of Grupo CASAIS, as well as the Vanguard Team, Tatyana Bezukladnikova, Filipa Abreu Teixeira, Pedro Aguardela, Nuno Banha and Sandra Viegas.
The visit was also a pretext for a short presentation about the company - which is currently the real estate developer with the highest investment turnover in Portugal - its projects and its policy of patronage and sponsorships, namely the youth tennis championship tournament project Vanguard Stars.
The morning’s guided site visit and presentation was rounded off with a delicious lunch in Portimão at the invitation of the Mayor of Portimão City Council, Isilda Gomes during which the Mayor once again extended an invitation to invest in the borough, an opportunity that was warmly appreciated by Vanguard Properties and which is already being studied by the developer.
