CTP acquired A1 Bucharest Park during a transaction valued at approximately €40 million.T property is situated at kilometre 13 on A1 motorway.
The developer already owns other three properties in the vicinity of Bucharest: CTPark Bucharest West, CTPark Bucharest and CTPark Bucharest Chitila. The logistics project A1 Bucharest Park was developed by AIC RE and bought by CTP from Vabeld Group, the transaction being concluded on the 27th of June 2019.
The newly acquired land and buildings shall be fully integrated in CTPark Bucharest and will benefit of the same management standards as the rest of the park, including comfortable landscaping and property management. The project covers 14 ha of land on which are developed eight warehouses, fully occupied, with a total GLA of 78,000 sqm. The diversified tenant base includes nationally and internationally important retailers and logistics players, such as Delamode, Augsburg, Kalapod etc.
“This acquisition represents a significant opportunity to consolidate CTP’s presence at km 13, where we already have one of the main hubs in Romania. I do believe in Romania’s development capabilities in terms of infrastructure and attraction of new investments. The acquisition will enable CTP to access a new range of tenants that prove strong opportunities to grow their operations in Romania”, stated Remon Vos, CTP’s CEO.
Born in the Netherlands in 1970, Remon Vos founded CTP in 1998 with the goal to develop A-class industrial properties in the Czech Republic. Remon developed and grew the CTPark Network to become the largest integrated system of full-service business parks in CEE. At over 5 million sqm of lettable area, and sufficient land to grow to 8 million m2, the CTPark Network offers 5 unique property types that can accommodate wide variety businesses from 450 sqm incubators to 50,000 sqm built-to-suit manufacturing facilities or 100,000 sqm distribution centres. CTP is a long-term investor and partner to its clients, with an innovative and entrepreneurial approach. This focus has resulted in 70% of all new business coming from existing clients. CTP has also developed unique, high-quality office and housing projects, such as the award-winning Spielberk, and the unique student housing concept Domeq in Brno. Remon continues to lead the company at full-speed, with big plans for the future.
The park benefits of an excellent location, very close to Bucharest ring road and with very good access to A1 Highway providing fast route towards the rest of the country and linking Bucharest with Hungary and the rest of Europe. It is one of the most important logistic hubs in the Western part of Bucharest, with all infrastructure in place and all utilities available, with good visibility and easy access for trucks, not far from urban agglomeration.
„The acquired project connects very well with the rest of our properties in the same spot and also connects well with our idea of offering a new product to the market which is small spaces at high standards – 1,000 to 3,000 sqm units, newly built, high quality, low energy consumption and maximum comfort. We believe small businesses, production units, companies that need relatively small space deserve to develop their activity in proper space, which help them keep costs with utilities under control and attract good work force. And the perfect location for this is km 13 on A1 highway, which we consolidate as location by this new acquisition.”, added Ana Dumitrache, Country Head of CTP Romania.
