Tristan Capital Partners, together with its local operating partner Savills Investment Management, has acquired a portfolio of offices spanning 78,000 m2 in Madrid from the Socimi Inmobiliaria Colonial for the added value fund Episo4.
The portfolio comprises six Grade A office buildings located in established sub-markets outside of the Spanish capital’s business district: Campo de las Naciones, Josefa Valcárcel (A2) and Arroyo de la Vega (A1), as well as Agustín de Foxá, in the district of Chamartín. The portfolio offers immediate and large-scale exposure to the office market in Madrid, as well as a well-diversified tenant mix, and has the capacity of capturing an expected increase in rents.
Nikolay Velev, CEO of Tristan Capital Partners, said: “After several years of solid economic growth, job creation and a shortage of new developments, an imbalance has been generated between supply and demand in the office market in Madrid, which has resulted in a high net absorption of space and a considerable growth in rents. This trend has been particularly strong inside the M-30 and the differential in rents between offices located inside and outside the central district is now at a historical high. We hope that this gap will be reduced over time”.
The local operating partner will be Savills Investment Management with which CCP 5 LL (Tristan’s core-plus fund over the long term) successfully completed the acquisition of the Manoteras business park (Madrid) in 2017 for €103 million.
Fernando Ramírez de Haro, Head of Savills Investment Management in Spain, stated: “We are delighted to expand our relationship with Tristan through this portfolio. The buildings are of an excellent quality and are highly energy efficient. Moreover, they offer modern and flexible spaces, making them ideally positioned to capture the increase in rents and the growth that is expected to take place outside the M-30”.
Tristan Capital and Savills Investment Management have been advised by Savills Aguirre Newman, Uría Menéndez, Currie & Brown and PwC.
