GLP J-REIT, GLP’s Japanese real estate investment trust (J-REIT), has raised JPY28bn (€214m) to fund the acquisition of four logistics assets in Tokyo and Osaka.

GLP said this was the first accelerated global offering among J-REITs and had attracted strong interest from high-quality Japanese and international investors.

Yoshiyuki Miura, president of GLP J-REIT, said: “Over the last 12 months we’ve successfully completed three public offerings, and achieved the highest external growth among logistics J-REITs.”

Miura said the vehicle would continue to harness GLP’s group experience in developing and operating logistics real estate and would lead the J-REIT market in innovative initiatives.

The four assets comprise a total leasable area of approximately 161,982sqm, and are fully occupied.

The trust has now invested a total of JPY788bn on acquisition of assets.
