PARIS, 10 December 2015 – CBRE Global Investors has completed the acquisition of the flagship store of luxury fashion brand Roberto Cavalli in Paris, France, on behalf of one of its funds.

The nine-storey property located 261 rue Saint Honoré in Paris’ 1st district totals 2079 sqm with a gross lettable area of 1760 sqm. Roberto Cavalli occupies the building as its flagship Paris store with showroom, private suites and offices.  The transaction was a sale and leaseback.

The store has a prominent location on the corner of rue Saint Honoré and rue Cambon with extensive frontage along both prestigious shopping streets. The area continues to be a well-established and highly sought after location for luxury brand retailers.

This property sits in the heart of the Paris luxury retail district which means it is one of the finest retail locations in the world. It provides a strong income and with rents forecasted to continue to grow in Paris, we see major potential over our planned long term hold.”
