The ¤1.3bn co-investment in a Franco-Belgian mall portfolio by sovereign fund China Investment Corporation has finally broken a barren phase after it has sought to acquire real estate in mainland Europe for at least two years, writes PIE Managing Editor Allan Saunderson in a blog. The deal was confirmed this week by its co-investment partner AEW Europe.
Munich-based Hypo Real Estate has raised ¤1.16bn in its initial public offering of 80% of its pbb Deutsche Pfandbriefbank unit, and the share started trading Wednesday. The offer was oversubscribed at a price of ¤10.75 per share, the bottom of the envisioned offer range.
French state financing institution Caisse des Dépôts has raised ¤1.045bn at the second and final close of its French intermediate housing fund FLI, giving it investment capacity of ¤1.8bn and making it one of the three largest unlisted housing funds in Europe.
NYC-based Madison International Realty has confirmed reports of the sale of the Trianon office tower in Frankfurt for ¤540m to US REIT NorthStar Realty Finance after refurbishment and repositioning. It bought a 56.95% stake in 2012 for ¤92m from Morgan Stanley.
Singapore developer Oxley has bought a 20% stake in London’s second largest residential developer Galliard Homes for £50m as it looks to tap into strengthening demand from wealthy Asians for UK housing.
UK-based M7 Real Estate and US Starwood Capital have bought a portfolio of 10 Dutch light industrial assets through their MStar Europe joint venture. Seller was investment manager Valad Europe. The price was not disclosed.
Credit Suisse Asset Management, the German real estate manager of the Swiss banking group, is to pay out a further ¤500m to investors in its CS Euroreal open-end property fund, in liquidation. The fund has now reduced AUM to ¤2.3bn.
