CBRE Global Investors, on behalf of one of its separate accounts, has acquired a cross-dock building in Genas (Lyon) from the developer 6ème Sens Immobilier.

The cross-dock benefits from an exceptional location near Lyon, along the strategic Rocade Est. The 15,600 sqm cross-dock is pre-let to Relais Colis on a 12-year firm lease. The building will be delivered in May 2018 and will be certified Haute Qualité Environnementale (HQE) (level Very Good).

Gautier Beurnier, Head of Transactions France, CBRE Global Investors: “This high-quality asset benefits from a prime location and perfectly meets our client’s investment criteria. This acquisition increases our exposure to one of Europe’s prime logistics markets. In 2018, we will be looking to pursue further investments in this sector for our clients and we are actively scanning the market in particular around Paris.“

Jacques Garcès, Director, 6ème Sens Immobilier: “This disposal is the result of the development by 6ème Sens Immobilier of the 6Park Mi-Plaine representing a total area of 120,000 sqm. We succeeded in building trust with both Relais Colis and CBRE Global Investors and this operation reinforces our desire to pursue the development of new logistics projects”.
