Warsaw Financial Center sold to Allianz and Curzon Capital Partners III

It’s tough to think of many more important transactions that could take place in Central Europe than one involving the Warsaw Financial Center. And that’s exactly what was announced today, with co-owners CA Immo and Pramerica Real Estate Investors agreeing provisionally to selling the asset to Allianz and Curzon Capital Partners III, a fund managed by Tristan Capital. JLL and Colliers advised the vendors on the deal, who acquired the building originally in 2005. The two held 50% shares each in the 50,000 sqm asset, but in the new arrangement, Allianz will hold 87.5%. The sale price was announced to have been €210m.

“Our investment strategy calls for 7-10 % of the overall portfolio to be sold every year in order to take maximum advantage of positive market phases and generate profits,” says  Bruno Ettenauer, Chief Executive Officer of CA Immo. “Capital released in this way is earmarked for debt reduction and the realisation of current development projects. We are looking forward to the successful sale of the Warsaw Financial Center, which has now been agreed. This transaction will have a significantly positive impact on the annual result for 2012.”
