Nuveen Real Estate invests more than €135m in three premium logistics assets across France

Truck loading area
  • Three industrial assets located in Marseille, Valence and Ile-de-France
  • The fully let assets take Nuveen’s logistics AUM in France to nearly €200m
As part of its investment strategy in Europe, Nuveen Real Estate, one of the world’s largest investment managers, has acquired three premium industrial assets in France, on behalf of its European logistics platform. The three acquisitions, located in Marseille, Valence and near Paris, total an overall investment of more than €135 million.

The first asset, a development acquired from Virtuo, is located 30 km (c. 19 miles) south of Paris in the Essonne, within the strategic hub of the Plessis Pâté. The property is a multi-temperature logistics hub of just over 10,000 sq m (c. 108,000 sq ft). The site is fully leased to an international brand, which will use it as a storage and distribution hub to supply the Parisian region.

The second asset, with an area of about 49,000 sq m (c. 527,000 sq ft), is located in Port-Saint-Louis du Rhône within the Distriport industrial zone, in direct proximity to the industrial port of Marseille. The platform is fully leased to three occupants who are all well established in the region.

Located in Valence, 100 km south of Lyon, the third industrial asset, totalling nearly 87,000 sq m (c. 936,000 sq ft) is located close to the A7 and A49 motorways, providing a strategic location close to the French Alps and Italy. Occupied by the leader in online tyre sales, this property is integrated into the South Rhône-Alpes Multimodal Park, which includes DHL, Leroy Merlin and Kuehne and Nagel as tenants.

Christel Zordan, Head of France for Nuveen Real Estate, comments: "Throughout the ongoing health crisis we are experiencing an increased need for storage, so we are delighted to have added these three Grade A-logistics assets to Nuveen’s growing industrial portfolio. Taking into account their respective strategic locations and quality occupants, we expect to achieve the target rates of return of our investors. Building on this, we continue to look for new opportunities in the logistics market.”
