Far more than just a property development in a sea of urbanisations, Higuerón West is a master-planned community with a first-class infrastructure and set of support services designed to offer a superior quality of life.
The apartments, garden and sky villas in the units are laid out in small, intimate blocks of 5-7 properties each and surrounded by gardens carefully landscaped to create a sense of peace and beauty around the homes. The development is in phases, and since this is the only master-plan development of its kind on the Costa del Sol, the infrastructural planning is excellent and the architectural styling complementary and harmonious.
The flowing design of the development makes full use of the natural shape and gradient of the land, allowing for a high degree of privacy that assures stunning views across the Costa del Sol coastline and the Mediterranean Sea – and makes your home the place where you can clear your mind and re-energise.
LOW-DENSITY LIVING IN A GREEN BELT
Higuerón West covers an area of over 500.000m2, with 100.000m2of green zones not including the gardens and parks threaded throughout it. It makes for a low build density of properties tucked into and surrounded by greenery with views of nature and the everpresent sea. This green belt around Higuerón West is one of its uniquely distinguishing qualities.
It provides the ideal setting for a residential community whose on-site amenities include a private clubhouse with concierge services, a modern Co-working business centre, park areas, facilities for a school, and the mini-mall, restaurants, swimming pools, championship paddle tennis club, high-tech gymnasium and an award winning spa of neighbouring Reserva del Higuerón Resort.
QUALITY AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
The apartments and sky villas themselves as well as the overall master plan of Higuerón West have been masterfully designed by top New-York based architects Broadway Malyan – making this the only development on the Costa del Sol to be styled by such a prestigious international studio.
Higuerón West is a residential development that stands out through the design, eco-friendly credentials and living environment it offers. Working from this philosophy, we contracted renowned Project Management firm Hill International, who will deliver state-of-the-art homes that take Costa del Sol properties to a whole new standard of quality.
A LIFESTYLE CONCEPT
In choosing to build less than the urban plan allows for, the creators of Higuerón West have opted for quality over volume. This fits entirely within the vision to make it a luxury 21st century community where owners are surrounded by private parkland zones landscaped by Broadway Malyan.
Their designs incorporate native plants that are not only fragrant and beautiful, but also in harmony with local water resources. In addition to play areas for children, an outdoor amphitheatre and a dog-walking zone, there will also be organic vegetable lots, a shuttle service to the beach and electric bike and car stations available to residents.
At the heart of Higuerón West is a leafy boulevard paved in charming cobblestones that reduce speed and enhance the village feel. This main road in the neighbourhood will be flanked by a green zone complete with walking, jogging and cycling paths, which form part of an integrated circuit that prioritises resident wellbeing above traffic.
Walking or cycling amid the fragrant eucalyptus and rosemary that grows naturally in this hillside location is part of the lifestyle experience at Higuerón West, and to further reduce car usage and enhance safety within the community there are electric bicycles and buggies available for rent.
LEADING ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN
Broadway Malyan have veered from normal practice to provide what today’s homebuyers ask for – spacious, open interiors with wide windows opening onto large outdoor living spaces, specially designed to offer a choice of sunny and shaded areas throughout the day and seasons. Extend your lounge, dining areas and kitchen outwards to suit the season and create one large living space with the comfort and style of a villa.
Inside, the apartments offer natural light, elegant detailing and modern open-plan sophistication. Higuerón West apartments and sky villas are tailor-made homes, as owners are able to select customised details such as different configurations in the kitchens and bathrooms, state-of-the-art built-in outdoor cooking/BBQ areas and a choice of a splash pool or Jacuzzi on the sky villa rooftop terraces and garden villas.

Most property developments in the area are made up of relatively small projects lacking a central concept, infrastructure and master plan. Having all of these elements makes Higuerón West unique, and allows us to incorporate not only exceptional facilities and beautiful green breathing spaces all around your home, but also to add unique features.
Key among these is a modern coworking space that makes it possible to work on your doorstep if you prefer and provides a flexible, creative 21st century working environment where you can brainstorm, meet your clients, work on projects, network and enjoy a full set of professional support services.
This coworking space is designed for networking, creativity and flexibility with services including a concierge reception, brainstorming offices, desks, phone or video booths, multi-function printer facilities and an endless stream of fresh juice and roasted coffee.
Set within the residential greenery of Higuerón West, the coworking business centre forms an integral part of the community because it makes it possible to find an optimal balance between work and living – giving independent professionals and those working remotely the chance to be creative within an inspiring, flexible modern environment within walking distance of their home.
For parents juggling work with children it is an ideal solution, as well as for those who rely on a creative, inspiring office infrastructure that offers business support services, technical amenities, meeting rooms, WiFi and also the opportunity to connect and network. Featuring the latest trends in flexible working, the coworking space also provides a healthy café in keeping with the Higuerón West philosophy.
In addition to offering optimal convenience and the chance to avoid wasteful commutes, the coworking business centre at Higuerón West is also very centrally located close to road networks, public transport and a railway station that all take you to Málaga within half an hour and connect you to its international airport and high speed rail networks across Spain.
