Invesco buys Madrid Titán 4 tower from Pramérica for €40m

Friday, November 18th, 2011

German investment fund manager Invesco has bought the Titán 4 office building in Madrid for €40m from Pramerica, the real estate arm of US insurance firm Prudential. The sale of the tower, located in the Méndez Álvaro neighbourhood in the south of Madrid, is the largest single-asset transaction so far this year in Spain.

Pramérica bought the tower, which is a recent build, from Nozar in 2008. The building is currently rented to Adif, the railway infrastructure management company, and has a total area of 10,300 square metres and 218 parking spaces, according to the broker for the operation and future manager of the building, Cushman & Wakefield.

“This transaction has been possible thanks to the excellent quality of the building and its privileged location, despite of Spain’s current difficult market situation. A well-known tenant has also played an important role. High quality well- located product such as Titán 4 are the type of asset that international investors are looking for,” according to Jaime Alonso-Allende, Head of Office and Industrial Investment of C&W in Madrid.

Office tower investment transaction in Barcelona

Segurcaixa Holding, the insurance holding owned by the La Caixa savings bank, has purchased the Nissan office tower, also known as Torre Sur, in Plaza Cerdà of Barcelona, for an amount of €18m. The transaction was closed a few days ago and the property was aquired from a private family investment group.
The “Torre Sur” forms part of a complex of three office towers in Plaza Cerdà, denominated as a secondary location in the Barcelona office market since it does not form part of the major two main avenues of tertiary activity which correspond to Avenida Diagonal and Passeig de Gràcia.
The tower has an area of 9,000 square metros and the price amounts to approximately €2,000 per square metre, lower than other transactions closed in the same area during the last quarter. |
