Eversheds acts for Savills Investment on a €51.6m logistics purchase

An Eversheds Real Estate team has advised Savills Investment Management on the purchase of two logistics warehouses from UBS Asset Management in Madrid for €51.6 million

Savills Investment Management has purchased two logistics warehouses from UBS Asset Management (UBS AM) in Madrid for €51.6 million. The two assets have a total gross leasable area (GLA) of 34,969 sqm. Both warehouses are fully leased by the logistics operator XPOLogistics and Cadyssa Douglas.

Built-in the Leganés logistics park in 2008, the assets are well located for both national and international logistics and e-commerce operators, as they are located in Madrid’s first logistics belt. UBS AM acquired the assets in May 2017 for €35.15m at a yield of 6%.

“Savills IM’s logistics investment strategy prioritises modern centres next to major motorways and transport networks and occupied by tenants with solid long-term leases, allowing us to capture the sustained growth of e-commerce,” said Fernando Ramírez de Haro, managing director of Savills Investment Management for Spain and Portugal.
