The ten largest real estate deals in São Paulo in 2021

The end-of-office prophecy did not come true. After a year of business stiffness due to the coronavirus pandemic, 2021 was marked by the increase of vaccination and the reactivation of the billion-dollar business of selling and leasing corporate buildings in São Paulo, Brazil's leading financial centre.

The macro-environment is challenging: with the Selic rate rising, brick real estate investment funds (FII), one of the key capital practices for large transactions, face difficulties with prices below book value.

The survey of the biggest deals in São Paulo in 2021 was carried out by SiiLA, a company operating in data and analysis of the Latin American real estate market, at the request of Bloomberg Línea. Some operations – such as the sale of Globo's headquarters in the city to a fund managed by Vinci Partners – stunned the market.
