With its Swiss Life REF (CH) European Properties real estate fund, Swiss Life Asset Managers is acquiring properties in Dublin, Luxembourg and Madrid. In addition, a capital increase of around EUR 100 million is planned for midyear.
The Swiss Life REF (CH) European Properties real estate fund continues to pursue its successful quality strategy. With the support of Mayfair Capital and Swiss Life Asset Managers France, it has made purchases in three European metropolises: Dublin, Luxembourg and Madrid. The entire capital of the first issue (EUR 300 million) is thus invested.
The Lennox building in Dublin is located in a historic neighbourhood at the corner of South Richmond Street and Lennox Street in Dublin 2, the city’s traditional office district. With some 3000 square metres of office and catering space, the property benefits from its proximity to restaurants, cafés and bars as well as bus and tram stops. The four-storey new build has two long-term main tenants.
The first property acquired in Luxembourg is situated south of the city centre in Cloche d’Or, a district which is seeing substantial growth and which profits from the expansion of city and private infrastructure. A tram line with a nearby stop leads directly into the heart of the town. With around 4200 square metres of space, the property is occupied by two long-time, locally based main tenants.
The purchase in Madrid is located in the Chamberí district north of the old town, not far from the Paseo de la Castellana. Freshly renovated last year, the office building offers some 6300 square metres of rental space. The ground floor is let to retail and catering tenants while the upper storeys are rented as offices. The main tenant has signed a long-term lease.
