LOGIC SPAIN KCRE ACQUIRES A LOGISTIC PLATFORM OF 29,700 SQM FOR EUR 11.2M
The newly created Logic Spain KCRE, a Joint Venture between Brunswick Invest, the principal investment arm of Brunswick Real Estate, the international property Group Grosvenor, and the Spanish investor Kefren Capital, has closed the acquisition of a portfolio of logistic warehouses in the “Centro Intermodal de Transporte y Logística de Vitoria-Gasteiz” (CTV) in Jundiz (Basque Country) for circa Euro 11.2 million.
The assets in the portfolio were constructed in 2009 on a total plot area of 46,500 sqm. They comprise 29,700 sqm of cross docking and bulk storage warehouses, which are currently let to a variety of tenants, including DB Schenker, Correos, Eroski, and Grupo Antolin.
The CTV industrial park is located just 6 km from the centre of Vitoria, near the A-1 and AP-1 highways that serve as the main links between Madrid and the North of Spain. The area is well regarded by logistic operators, being the main logistic platform serving the Basque Country and the surrounding provinces.
Logic Spain KCRE is led by asset management firm Kefren Capital Real Estate (KCRE) and was advised by Araoz & Rueda on the legal side and CSI on technical matters. The transaction is financed by Kutxabank.
The seller was advised by Cushman & Wakefield during the process.
The CTV portfolio is the first investment for Logic Spain KCRE. The vehicle’s objective is to acquire more than Euro 100 million of logistic assets in the Spanish market. Kefren Capital Real Estate will then use its asset management expertise in the sector to create value for stakeholders. With other acquisition opportunities in the pipeline, Logic Spain KCRE expects to reach its investment goal in 2016.
