CR, an investment manager and advisor operating in the commercial real estate market in Europe, announces today that its Capital Advisory division has arranged financing on behalf of an investment vehicle of Hines for the acquisition of ABC Westland in Poeldijk, the Netherlands.

ABC Westland is a 117,000 SM logistics park focused on fresh food distribution, storage and processing. The park is situated in Westland, the main region for fresh food activities in the Netherlands, primarily due to its world leading greenhouse production area and proximity to the Port of Rotterdam. ABC Westland has made significant investments in solar panels, resulting in the park awarded the most sustainable logistics park in the Netherlands.

The transaction was led by Kirsten Glaser, Director, from CRCA. Financing was placed with Deutsche Pfandbriefbank (PBB).

“It was a pleasure to work with both Hines and Deutsche Pfandbriefbank on this transaction. We managed the advisory and financing from the start, through to execution and completion to secure the right outcome for all parties.
