Dolce & Gabbana Real Estate: new investments in Marbella

Dolce & Gabbana real estate: the three M’s

The leading Italian luxury fashion house, Dolce & Gabbana , is venturing into the exclusive real estate business. The company announced in Q3 2023 that it will build three major complexes in different parts of the world: the Maldives, Miami, and Marbella. Regarding the Andalusian town, Dolce & Gabbana has agreed with Sierra Blanca Estates, a company specialized in high-end properties on the Costa del Sol for 30 years, to construct 60 luxury apartments.

When Italians Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana founded their clothing brand in 1985, Spanish businessman Pedro Rodríguez already had the idea of creating a real estate business in Marbella, which he opened a year later. For the year 2023, the paths of Dolce & Gabbana and Sierra Blanca Estates crossed each other, when they announced that the Italian luxury brand is entering the real estate market.

Sierra Blanca Estates

The concept was presented by Pedro Rodríguez, founder and president of Sierra Blanca, and Carlos Rodríguez, the company’s CEO. They are planning to create a luxury neighborhood in Marbella specialized in luxury apartments associated with internationally renowned fashion brands.

EPIC Marbella

Sierra Blanca Estates is already marketing the EPIC Marbella development, which is almost completely sold out. EPIC Marbella features the Fendi Casa brand, as well as the Karl Lagerfeld Villas Marbella, three of which have already been purchased. The Dolce & Gabbana real estate complex will also be located in the Marbella Golden Mile area.

On the Golden Mile

For those unfamiliar with the Golden Mile, it is a zone that stretches from the western part of Marbella’s city center to Puerto Banús. The area acquired its name and fame due to the quality of its amenities, the refinement of its properties and the beauty of its prime beachfront setting. This 5 km-long area is one of the most exclusive and sought-after for real estate investments in Europe, attracting the international elite to enjoy the quality of life on the Costa del Sol.

Exclusivity at its best

“EPIC Marbella is only a few minutes away from the exclusive Puente Romano Resort and Marbella Club Hotel. It is only 800 meters from one of the best beaches, where beach clubs and restaurants have become a favorite destination for those seeking top-quality gastronomy. Finally, Puerto Banús is just 3 km away, with some of Europe’s most important marinas and luxury brands,” explained Sierra Blanca Estates regarding the Dolce & Gabbana real estate development.

60 Luxury Properties

The developer revealed some details about the Dolce & Gabbana real estate investment. “There will be 60 units with different typologies, in five buildings, which will not be four or five stories tall. Some of these residences will be highly sought after, especially due to their size, which will be larger than some villas.”

Initially, before the brand’s involvement, the investment in the complex was set at 250 million euros, an amount that will increase significantly after Dolce & Gabbana real estate market.

Rodeo Drive Marbella

The Italian designers will also transfer their DNA to other areas of the project, such as commercial developments, creating a kind of “Rodeo Drive in Marbella.” (Rodeo Drive is a two-mile-long street in Beverly Hills, California, with its southern segment in the City of Los Angeles, known as one of the most expensive streets in the world.)

Dolce & Gabbana real estate will draw inspiration from their private residences, memories, and lifestyle to design communal areas such as pools and gardens. The Spanish company also reveals that the residential project will offer panoramic views of the sea, golf courses, and Gibraltar, as well as “a spa, gym, indoor and outdoor sports facilities… and services available to buyers such as cleaning, dry cleaning, and private chefs.”

Future owners of Dolce & Gabbana real estate in Marbella

Who will live there? “Dolce & Gabbana real estate has a huge fan base worldwide, and very important people are already showing interest in the residences; they don’t want to miss this opportunity.” It is a train that Marbella will not let escape, positioning itself at the forefront of local luxury with projects like this one.
