Positive development in Casco Viejo

The UNESCO Old Town Casco Viejo in Panama City has taken the next step in its development. In 2022, the spectacular Hyatt Hotel (Forbes report) and the beautiful Sofitel opened. These luxury brands and the planned connecting road to the new cruise port and exhibition centre will further stimulate the real estate market in Casco Viejo. Construction developments and lifestyle continue to push into the old town district of Santa Ana. “Regus”, one of the largest co-working companies in the world, plans to open its offices at Plaza Santa Ana in late 2023. This is also where Fashion Week took place in September 2023.

Since 2017, I have been searching for properties to invest in the Old Casco Viejo In Panama City, as I have always been convinced of the potential of the UNESCO Old City. However, this search has been difficult as many of the properties have a weak point (e.g. old, dark, damp, location, noisy, badly cut, etc).

Therefore, we decided to build a residential building according to our ideas and standards. Modern flats with a historic façade in a top location.

With our experienced local building partners we are constructing and selling 20 flats in the Casco Viejo (67 – 191sqm / 1-3 bedrooms) at the church square “Plaza Santa Ana”, which is one of the most beautiful squares in the old town. Selling prices from 280,000 USD. Including kitchen appliances, air conditioning, built-in wardrobes, double-glazed windows, etc.

From my point of view, the flats offer the best value for money for an investment between 280,000 USD – 780,000 USD in the entire UNESCO Old Town.

We are happy to send you floor plans, prices and availability.

UNESCO tax incentives:
– 30 years no property tax
– 10 years no income tax on rental income
