Principal Real Estate Europe, acting as asset and transaction manager, has advised the Novapierre Allemagne 2 SCPI fund, managed by PAREF Gestion, on the acquisition of a retail property. The vendor is a fund managed by the Hahn Group. The parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

The weighted average unexpired lease term (WALT) within the property is around 9.6 years. There are 250 car parking spaces available on the approximately 31,000 square metre plot belonging to the property.

The purchaser was legally advised by DLA Piper on the transaction. TA Europe provided technical support collaborating with TAUW as environmental advisor. Cushman & Wakefield and the law firm Rotthege Wassermann acted for the vendor.
