Arcano, the leading independent financial advisory firm specialized in investment banking and asset management, has closed the purchase of a 66,800 sqm industrial/logistic plot located in Alcalá de Henares through the Arcano Value Added Real Estate II fund, which has already committed 70% of a total of 135 million euros, having completed 7 transactions in the logistics, residential, commercial and hotel sectors.
The fund has acquired the building with the strategic objective of developing a state-of-the-art logistics complex in which it will invest more than 30 million euros. The project will be developed under the premise of achieving the highest standards of efficiency and sustainability.
The location is one of the differentiating factors of the project. It is located in the heart of the Henares corridor, Madrid’s second logistics hub, next to the Amazon and Teka warehouses. With direct access to A-2 highway towards Madrid-Barcelona, the plot is in a strategic location close to the capital for the development of a large logistics hub.
This acquisition takes place in a context in which, despite the current difficulties and uncertainty, the logistics market is proving its resilience, being one of the sectors in constant growth. The year 2021 resulted in a record investment in the industrial and logistics sector amounting to 2.2 billion, which is 53% more compared to the volume recorded in 2020.
With this purchase, Arcano Partners underscores its commitment to the economic growth of the regions in which it operates. The firm also maintains its firm commitment to a sector that is expected to grow in rents over the next five years and with a logistics vacancy rate in new warehouses that continues to fall.
