Updated: May 8, 2021

This project has temporarily been taken out of the market.

Lisbon Square is a mixed-use project with residential, retail, and serviced apartments in the heart of Alcantara.  It is 3km away from Baixa and Marques de Pombal.

Prima Collection at Lisbon Square is the first phase of the project, which will include serviced apartments that are managed on a short-term basis, as well as commercial units.  The serviced apartments will come with a rental guarantee for the buyers.

This article delves into the details.

What is Prima Collection?

Prima Collection is a luxury property management company for short term rentals.  The company already has three active locations in Lisbon, and they plan on expanding to other pan Mediterranean cities.

The development company in Portugal, Optylon-Krea has a sister property management company called LovelyStay.  They have more than 300 apartments under management for short-term rentals. The buyers of the Lisbon Square serviced-apartment units will benefit from special discounts on other Prima Collection properties under management.

The serviced apartments are sold with a short-term management contract that promises an annual 3% rental income for three years after being operational.  After the initial three years, the rental income will be switch to a revenue share model.  The property is rented out with a concierge service, housekeeping service, and other add-on services.

This type of residential real estate packages with short-term rental guarantees is common among Portuguese real estate developers.  It is particularly popular among international buyers, especially Golden Visa clients.
