The newly completed asset is located in the logistics ‘golden triangle’ connecting the four Nordic capitals of Copenhagen, Oslo, Helsinki and Stockholm. It is situated in a strategic micro location in Norrköping, with a major motorway, harbor, rail connection and airport all within a 15-minute drive. It is fully let to prime tenant PostNord on a long-term lease.
In addition, the facility’s roof will be covered with 55,000 sqm of solar panels, one of the largest such expanses of panels on a building in Sweden, with excess energy to be fed into the grid. This installation will align the facility to the Carbon Risk Real Estate Monitor (CRREM) decarbonization pathway, supporting the Allianz Real Estate’s target to reduce carbon emissions across its portfolio by 25% by 2025 and be carbon net-zero by 2050.
The acquisition in Norrköping adds further size and momentum to Allianz Real Estate’s Nordics portfolio, which is approaching EUR 2 billion in assets under management (AUM), and to the firm’s global logistics allocation. Its sector portfolio grew to EUR 11.6 billion in AUM as at the end of 2021, up 32% year-on-year, with EUR 5.8 billion in European logistics assets.
Recent sector deals include its sixth acquisition in Italy, announced in March 2022, which brought total assets under management in its Italian Logistics Fund to more than EUR 500 million, and a 50/50 joint venture with logistics specialist VGP.
Thomas Villadsen, Director Nordics & CEE at Allianz Real Estate, said: “The Swedish logistics market, the largest in the Nordics, is undergoing major structural changes given rapid digitalization and e-commerce uptake. The Nordic logistics markets offer great investment opportunities, with Copenhagen, Helsinki and Stockholm in particular experiencing dynamic yield compression.”
Annette Kröger, CEO of North & Central Europe at Allianz Real Estate, said: “This latest acquisition is further testament to our high-conviction stance towards logistics as an investment sector and our cross-sector approach to ESG. It also illustrates, following our residential joint venture with Heimstaden last year, our desire to build our Nordics real estate footprint given the attractive investment fundamentals the region continues to offer.”
