Nuveen Real Estate expands logistics platform with premium development in Zaltbommel, The Netherlands
Nuveen Real Estate has acquired a distribution development in Zaltbommel, The Netherlands, from Somerset Capital Partners, a core logistics developer. The investment manager was supported by Cording Real Estate Group B.V. as its partner for logistics transactions in Benelux. This represents the 8th acquisition in the Netherlands over the last 18 months for its expanding logistics platform.
The asset is located in Zaltbommel which is ranked among the top 5 logistics regions in the Netherlands. The area benefits from direct access to the A2 and A15 motorways, to secure the north-south as well as the east-west connections.
Totaling 62,000 sq m (c.667,000 sq ft), the development comprises two phases. Phase 1 has been developed as a turn-key project by the developer Somerset Capital Partners. This newly constructed and state of the art building offers easily divisible and flexible occupancy solutions together with ADR storage and a BREEAM ‘very good’ certification. Energy efficient LED lighting systems and a roof prepared for the future placement of solar panels fits perfectly with Nuveen Real Estate's requirements for sustainable buildings.
The warehouse is leased to Mainfreight, a large global supply chain provider, who will use it to service FMCG customers. Phase 2 of the development is due to be completed in Q4 2019 on a speculative basis, with a call option for the tenant.
James Ellis, Senior Investment Manager, Nuveen Real Estate, says: “This is a prime example of the core qualities which our investors are looking for in logistics strategies. With ever changing occupier requirements, we continue to focus on sustainable buildings in strong locations, and so look forward to continued collaboration with Somerset Capital Partners on future projects."
Frans Landmeter, Partner, Somerset Capital Partners, comments: "We are happy to have found Nuveen Real Estate purchasing the Zaltbommel development, which is part of an extensive pipeline. As our developments come to market we hope to continue doing transactions with this prime investor."
