2019

We focused the company on innovation and efficiency. We developed the Camino Real (mall) and Real 12 (offices) projects, where we will invest more than USD 130 million during the 2020-2021 period.

1929

We’ve always had great ambitions:

But back then we didn’t know we would become Centenario. In the beginning, our name was LISA (La Inmobiliaria S.A.) and we were dedicated to building construction and urban development.

1986

Fifty-four years after our incorporation, Steve Jobs and Apple launched the LISA desktop computer. We changed our name to Inversiones Centenario, having built a large part of the formal Northern Lima area and constructed residential buildings in many districts, as well as several branches of Banco de Crédito del Perú; in addition to the development of financial businesses.

1995

Our objective was clear:

We wanted our company to stand the test of time. In 1995, we started the construction of Peru’s first business center in San Isidro.

1997

We decided to focus our real estate activity on Offices and Residential Areas. We bought over 1,000 hectares in Lurín and more than 100 hectares in Carabayllo, creating a large land bank for the future. We prepared our plan with the purpose of expanding our portfolio of offices to be leased.

1998

We issued our first corporate bonds for USD 25 million.

2002

Our clients are our priority. We began to offer the property management service directly from our office buildings.

2005

We started our first residential area project in provinces, in the city of Chiclayo.

2007

Based on our successful experience with Centro Empresarial Real, we built Cronos, the first premium business center in Surco.

2008

We formed an alliance with Paz Corp. (Chile) and entered the residential construction business through the Paz Centenario joint venture.

2009

We started residential area projects in Ica and Huancayo.

2012

We bought more than 35 hectares of land in the eastern part of Lima and in the main provinces of the country. Our portfolio diversified geographically and we eventually came to have the best “land bank”.

2013

We entered the retail construction business through the acquisition of the MZ Group, and the industrial construction business with MacrOpolis; becoming the real estate group with the greatest business diversification in Peru.

2016

We inaugurated the Real 8 building. We expanded our residential area operations to Piura, Chiclayo, Trujillo, Huancayo, Lima, Ica, and Tacna. We started the urban development projects of MacrOpolis in Lurín.

2018

We inaugurated the Real 2 building, designed by the architect Jean Nouvel. We acquired a land of 15,000 m² in San Isidro and 420 hectares adjoining MacrOpolis. We relaunched Minka in a format combining Outlet, Modern Retail, Traditional Market, and gastronomy and entertainment areas.

Where are we today?

We are the real estate company with the greatest geographical and business diversification.

Future plans

Continue to grow our real estate portfolio in 4 main fields: Residential Areas, Industrial, Offices, and Retail.

Strength and support

We are listed on the Lima Stock Exchange with nearly 2,000 shareholders, among which are some of the main economic groups in the country.

Purpose

We generate quality in cities by means of transcendent real estate developments.
