La Française Real Estate Managers (REM), acting on behalf of two collective real estate investment vehicles, announces the off-market acquisition of a last-mile logistics warehouse in La Coruña (Spain) from VECTURA, a company specialised in the acquisition and development of industrial and logistics property assets.
Delivered last February, the warehouse is fully let to a key e-commerce player on a long-term lease. The asset has a total surface area of approximately 7,935 m², including approximately 5,756 m2 of warehouses and 2,179m2 of offices, as well as eight delivery bays and 571 parking spaces (of which 448 are for vans).
Located in the Espirito Santo industrial zone, the warehouse has excellent motorway access (AP-9, AG-13, N-V1), enabling it to cover a very large catchment area. The asset meets the latest technical and environmental standards, with a BREEAM Very Good certification, thanks in particular to the inclusion of 400 m2 of roof-mounted solar panels. In addition, the property meets the main sustainability criteria of the new investment charter defined by La Française Real Estate Managers.
Thierry MOLTON, Managing director of La Française Real Estate Managers - Retail Division, concluded: "Ideally located on the north-western coast of the Iberian Peninsula, this logistics warehouse provides rapid links to the main towns and cities in Galicia. The asset has attractive valuation prospects, particularly in view of the tenant's reputation, its strategic location and the scarcity of available land. This acquisition is a continuation of the partnership with VECTURA that has been developed by the institutional division of La Française Real Estate Managers, represented by Arthur Brizard, Deputy Investment Director."
La Française REM was advised by Ashurst, ETYO and BNP Paribas Real Estate over the course of this transaction. Vectura was advised by Cuatrecasas.
