The building, of some 8,000m2, is located in the town centre, close to the Sagrada Familia Cathedral. It formerly housed the offices of major utilities company Gas Natural. It was sold by joint owners Gas Natural and a company of the Iberdrola group. A complete refirbishment of the building will be completed in the first semester of 2013, when the largest Youth Hostel in Barcelona will be inaugurated.
