CBRE Global Investors Acquires Core 36,246 SQM Italian Logistics Real Estate

MILAN 9 March 2021 – CBRE Global Investors, on behalf of an European separate account client, has acquired Anzola, a 36,246 sq m fully let logistics asset in Bologna in the Emilia Romagna Region, Italy.  

The asset is fully let to two tenants; Conad, the major Italian supermarket food chain, and Unilog, the Italian third-party logistics provider active in the food distribution sector.

Bologna is the second largest logistics market in Italy, offering excellent connections to the wealthiest Italian Regions (Lombardy, Veneto and Emilia Romagna). There is no vacant Grade A space at present and limited supply to come to the market due to restrictions on development within the municipality.

Alberico Radice Fossati, Head of Transactions Italy, CBRE Global Investors said: “This was a rare opportunity to acquire a fully-let Grade A logistics asset in an attractive market with great potential. The demand for well-let, high-quality logistics assets has increased significantly in recent years, particularly in light of the pandemic, and this transaction is a strong endorsement of CBRE Global Investor’s logistics platform. Having acquired over €855 million of European logistics assets in 34 deals across nine countries last year, we continue to see compelling opportunities in this sector.”

CBRE Global Investors is a leading investor and operator in the European logistics sector, with an AUM of €11.3bn*, a rental area of seven million sq m across 11 countries.
