LaSalle E-REGI sells core logistics asset in Milan
MILAN (October 07, 2020) — LaSalle has completed the sale of a core logistics asset in Greater Milan, Italy for €35 million to AXA Investment Management. The disposition follows a strategic decision of the Fund to exit the Italian market while creating superior investment performance.
The asset is located in Liscate, approximately 16 km east of Milan’s city centre, and benefits from strong road transport infrastructure within close proximity. Its strategic location sits next to Milan's East Ring Road and the new "Bre.Be.Mi." (Brescia-Bergamo-Milan) motorway, providing easy access to the key cities of Northern Italy.
The standalone asset comprises c. 46,000 sqm of purpose-built single-storey logistics space, which is spread across two blocks and includes 102 loading bays, office space and a canteen. It is fully let to an institutional grade tenant on a strong covenant, offering long term income visibility, while the high-quality asset offers the flexibility to be multi-tenanted if required.
Uwe Rempis, Managing Director and Fund Manager of LaSalle E-REGI, said: “This disposition has been a planned and well-executed transaction by our team, where we have swiftly exited a country which no longer fits with our Fund strategy and sold an asset at a very attractive price, generating an excellent return for our investors.”
