Invesco is raising its commitment to the Spanish logistics sector. The British real estate group has purchased two warehouses located in the Puerta de Madrid Logistics Park from the US fund GreenOak. The two warehouses have a surface area of more than 38,000 m2, according to a statement from the company.
The assets are located on Calle de los Tapiceros in San Fernando de Henares, an area very close to the Spanish capital and the A-2 motorway, the busiest road in the last mile market. Invesco expects that the warehouses, which have a high degree of occupancy, will be finished by the end of the year. The operation has been advised by the real estate consultancy Cushman & Wakefield.
This new investment in Madrid, whose amount has not been revealed, follows the group’s search for a tenant for the 30,000 m2 logistics platform that it owns in Los Gavilanes, in Getafe.
Moreover, across the whole of Spain, Invesco has undertaken several operations in the logistics market over the last year. One of the most important took place last December when the real estate group acquired the facilities that house the headquarters of Mango in Palau-solità i Plegamans (Barcelona) for more than €100 million.
