DIC Asset: Logistics Investments Expanded in the Netherlands – Property in West Brabant Region Acquired
Frankfurt am Main, 17 October 2022. DIC Asset AG (“DIC”), ISIN: DE000A1X3XX4, one of Germany’s leading listed property companies, succeeded in having the acquisition of a logistics asset in Oosterhout in the south of the Netherlands notarised a few days ago, the property being intended for the separate asset pool of the “RLI-GEG Logistics & Light Industrial III” institutional logistics fund. The acquisition already brings the fund up to its planned target volume of c. EUR 400 million.
In addition to classic core/core-plus logistics real estate, the fund also invests in light industrial and urban logistics properties. While focusing on Germany as its main market, the fund supplements its portfolio with assets in neighbouring European markets in Benelux and Austria.
“As planned, we acquired another high-end property in one of the strongest prime logistics locations in the Netherlands on behalf of our investors, the logistics asset class being highly significant for us. Within a very short period of time, we took advantage of our network in the Dutch investment market, demonstrating our reliability, competence and creativity as leading management platform for commercial real estate,” commented Johannes von Mutius, the CIO of DIC.
More Details on the Property:
The logistics property in Oosterhout, which is fully tenant-occupied on a remaining lease term of 15 years, has a total lettable area of around 30,000 sqm and excellent road, rail, water and air transport links. The city of Oosterhout is located inside the Dutch logistics triangle of Breda / Tilburg / Waalwijk, which makes it an important location close to the port-related logistics of Rotterdam and Antwerp. The property is occupied on a long-term lease by logistics service provider De Graaf Logistics Group, an established family business that has been in this line of business for more than a century. The services it provides include the storage and storage as well as bespoke one-off logistics solutions.
