Nuveen Real Estate acquires a logistics asset in Evreux, France, for c.€25 million
As part of its investment strategy across Europe, Nuveen Real Estate, one of the largest investment managers in the world, has acquired a logistics asset in France on behalf of its European logistics platform.
The asset, located near Evreux, in the region of Eure, and totalling 34,000 sq m (c. 366,000 sq ft), was acquired from a group of private investors for c.€25 million.
Located 30 km from the major A13 motorway, this Grade-A platform offers a strategic location between the densely populated Paris region and Le Havre. The building, delivered in 2015, is entirely occupied by ADS (Hopps Group) one of the French leaders in logistics and e-commerce, with a lease of 12 years.
Christel Zordan, Head of France for Nuveen Real Estate, says: "The Evreux asset represents a strong acquisition due to its competitive price, given the current market momentum for logistics assets, and fits perfectly with our wider European investment strategy.
“Our European logistics platform has so far invested €2.5 billion, targeting core, high-quality logistics assets in competitive locations across Europe. The platform is particularly active due to the changing nature of the sector, as it responds to the growing needs of e-commerce.”
In this transaction, Nuveen Real Estate was advised by Cheuvreux and BG2V for legal and financing, while the technical and environmental advice was delivered by SD Environnement, ETYO and ERM. Linklaters was responsible for structuring the operation.
The seller was advised by Michelez Notaires, Lawrizon Avocats and AXE m² as an agent.
The financing of this operation was provided by Postbank.
