Equity Estate acquires industrial building in Rijnsburg

8-12, 2016

Equity Estate expanded the Propco portfolio by acquiring an industrial building located at the Bankijkerweg 8 in Rijnsburg. The building consists of approximately 8,600 m² of warehouse space and 600 m² of office space on more than 2 hectares of land.

Van der Gugten Verpakkingen leases the building for a period of 10 years, and is a wholesaler in flower packaging materials. Furthermore, they are part of the Pacombi Group BV. Van der Gugten has a market share of approximately 40% and operates in the niche market of transport packaging in the flower industry. Its central location in the Dutch ‘Bollenstreek’ (flower bulb region) and the proximity of the flower auctions in Rijnsburg, Aalsmeer and the Westland, makes that the building is strategically located for its purpose.

After the acquisition of an industrial building in Dordrecht in June 2016, this is the second acquisition of Propco in a half year period. The intention is to further expand the portfolio to a size of around EUR 50 million, with long-term leases on strong locations.

Van Benthem & Keulen and Ten Holter Realty Partners (THRP) acted as the legal and commercial advisor on behalf of Equity Estate, whilst Marktlink fusies & overnames acted as the advisor of the seller during the entire process.

Deutsche Bank refinances two logistic assets

15-8, 2016

Equity Estate has successfully secured refinancing for two logistic assets through a loan provided by Deutsche Bank.

It concerns two single tenant logistic properties located at Schiphol-Rijk and Amsterdam Westpoort (Koolhovenlaan 35-45 and Lipariweg 6). The two properties are held separately in 2 Dutch SPV’s; AB CPFM Real Estate I B.V. and AB CPFM Real Estate IX B.V., owned through a joined venture with Arab Bank.

Both objects are located on good logistic and industrial locations in the Randstad area and are purpose built. The property at Schiphol-Rijk is fully let to Ricoh and measures approximately 10,200 sq m of commercial space, 6,200 sq m of office space and offers 120 parking spaces. Stora Enso has signed a long-term lease for the property in Amsterdam-Westpoort which contains approximately 24,000 sq m of commercial space, 1,400 sq m of office space and has parking spaces on the adjacent site at the Lipariweg in Amsterdam.

Nard Schuddebeurs, COO Equity Estate:
We were positively surprised about the interest in the market for refinancing our assets. With Deutsche Bank we have a good financing partner for the long-term growth.

Maarten de Jong, Senior Consultant CBRE Debt & Structured Finance:
The process of getting this refinancing in place showcased that lenders have shown a great deal of interest in financing logistic real estate. Deutsche Bank ended up in front providing financing that was the optimal combination of attractive terms and closing ability.

Equity Estate worked together with CBRE Debt & Structured Finance and Greenberg Traurig.

Equity Estate divests an office building in Gent, Belgium

12-4, 2016

In Q3 2015 Equity Estate successfully divested an office building of approx. 3,800 sqm in the city centre of Gent to the Catholic University of Leuven. After the former tenant City of Gent vacated the office building in February 2015, Equity Estate reviewed the possibilities to lease out or divest the office building from a strategic perspective. When the Catholic University of Leuven turned out to be interested a divestment of the property made sense for the investors, reducing the fund’s exposure in the Belgium office market. In order to complete the sale of the office building, Equity Estate divided the complex into three apartment rights and sold one of them. The remaining apartment rights are leased out to United Brands retail store and the Proximus telecom and data centre. On this transaction, Baker McKenzie acted as a legal advisor on behalf of Equity Estate.
