Nuveen Real Estate provides financing for Mountpark
Nuveen Real Estate provided the financing to subsidiaries of Mountpark Logistics EU Sarl (“Mountpark”).
The 2.18 million sq ft portfolio includes 1.61 million sq ft completed assets and a further 579,160 sq ft asset under development.
The properties are uniquely well-positioned in the major distribution hubs of Dublin, Madrid, Manchester and Birmingham.
Nuveen Real Estate is actively expanding its reach into select European jurisdictions, including Ireland, Spain and the Netherlands, having historically lent predominately in the U.K. The loan is Nuveen’s first CRE debt investment into the Spanish market and marks its second loan in Ireland this year.
CBRE’s Debt and Structured Finance team, part of CBRE Capital Advisors, advised Mountpark and USAA on the financing.
Christian Janssen, Head of European Debt at Nuveen Real Estate, commented: “We are delighted to have been able to work with Mountpark, USAA and CBRE to provide a flexible and innovative multi-jurisdictional financing solution to Mountpark Logistics. We continue to expand our lending platform across Europe, and this transaction complements our existing core portfolio.”
Vishnu Reddy, Senior Director, Debt and Structured Finance, CBRE commented: “We were pleased to have secured this financing on behalf of Mountpark and USAA. Competition to lend across Europe remains high, particularly in sectors such as logistics where the market fundamentals remain extremely robust. We were delighted that Nuveen Real Estate could provide financing with the flexibility required by our client.”
