Verdion European Logistics Fund 1 acquires strategic Kassel logistics park

9-2, 2021

Equity Estate Group has sold a strategic logistics park on the outskirts of the German town of Kassel to Verdion European Logistics Fund 1 (VELF1) for EUR 28 million. The park is situated in the Lohfelden logistics hotspot just outside Kassel, strategically located on the  A7 highway in Central Germany – the country’s longest autobahn and an important north-south route.

The property was held by Equity Estate Group for almost 15 years, forming part of the Queristics portfolio which was raised in 2005. In 2018 Equity Estate recapitalised the portfolio. In 2019 a property in the Netherlands was sold, followed by the second divestment of a logistics building in Willebroek, Belgium in 2020. With the sale of the Lohfelden property the recapitalisation of 2018 will be fully repaid.

This transaction is the fifth and largest acquisition so far for Verdion European Logistics Fund 1 (VELF1) SCSp, which held its final close in September 2020 and is focussed on urban logistics assets in edge-of-town or infill locations that facilitate swift product delivery to major cities/towns, meeting the last-mile requirements. It is targeting value-add/core-plus investments in Germany, the Nordics, Benelux and other select markets across Europe.

The 58,307 sqm plot currently comprises 16,046 sqm of warehousing and 3,852 sqm office/ commercial spaces in three buildings. Two are leased for a commercial vehicle parts centre, agricultural dealership and central warehouse. The other tenant specializes in thermoplastic extrusion. The acquisition also includes additional land with potential for a new warehouse of around  6,000 sqm plus 500 sqm office space and a 1,228 sqm mezzanine creating a total lettable area of 7,920 sqm in line with current zoning plans.

Florian Stöbe, Verdion Head of Investment – Germany said: “This asset is exactly in line with our value-add/core+ strategy: a site with great potential in one of the country’s most important logistics hotspots, combined with long term commitments from existing tenants. The intention now is to commence speculative development to meet continuing demand for high quality space from ecommerce occupiers in particular– an approach the fund is adopting across other invested locations.”

CBRE and Baker McKenzie advised Equity Estate Group in this transaction. Verdion was advised by REC Partners and GSK Stockmann.

Equity Estate divests Willebroek - Belgium

6-11, 2020

Equity Estate Group, owner of the Queristics portfolio, divested the 34,000 sqm logistics asset in Willebroek after leasing the building to Eutraco in July 2020. The asset was part of the Queristics portfolio and has been sold to GLP, a leading investor and developer of logistics warehouses and distribution parks.

The asset is situated in one of Belgium’s premier markets in the heart of the Belgium’s ‘Golden Triangle’, strategically located between the A12/E19 motorways connecting the country’s two largest metropolitan areas,
Antwerp and Brussels. It is also in close proximity to the port of Antwerp, the second largest European port, and Brussels airport, one of Europe’s largest cargo airports.

Philippe Hendriks, GLP Belgium and Netherlands, said: "Following our recent acquisition in the Port of Ghent this facility solidifies our entry into the Belgian logistics market as we continue to grow our operations in the region to meet growing customer demand. The asset in Willebroek is an excellent facility that benefits from convenient access to commercial and transport hubs in Belgium and further afield, making it an ideal addition
to our Benelux offering.”

Enrico van Erkelens, CEO of Equity Estate Group, said: “Over the past few years we have seen an increasing interest in the Belgium logistics market followed by a swiftly decreasing yield gap with the surrounding countries. After recapitalisation of the Queristics portfolio in 2018, and leasing the asset in 2020, for us this was a good moment to divest this great building.”

Willebroek, Belgium fully leased to Eutraco

17-7, 2020

Equity Estate has signed a lease agreement with Eutraco for a logistics business complex located at the Victor Dumonlaan 14-18 in Willebroek, Belgium.

Eutraco is a European logistics provider founded in 1967, with almost 200,000 m² of logistics space. Eutraco has his own fleet of 400 vehicles, sea freight expertise and an in-house technology team.

The business complex has been part of the Queristics portfolio since 2006, which consists of real estate in Belgium, The Netherlands and Germany. The business complex comprises approximately 34,000 m² of warehouse and office space. It is located next to the inland terminal of Hutchison Ports or "TCT Terminal" in Willebroek. The central location, fast accessibility and low carbon footprint make this site attractive for both local and international logistics companies.

CBRE and Baker McKenzie advised Equity Estate in this transaction.
