Macquarie Asset Management has acquired a Dutch logistics real estate portfolio on behalf of its European Logistics Real Estate Fund.

The asset manager has acquired the 67,000sqm pre-let portfolio of three facilities and two currently under development from developer VDG Real Estate for an undisclosed amount.

The assets are situated along the Dutch logistics corridor in the towns of Venlo, Ede, and Helmond.

Christian Goebel, the co-head of Macquarie Asset Management’s core/core-plus real estate strategy said: “We are delighted to continue to expand our logistics footprint in the region.

“With its strategic position along the spine of the EU’s supply chain networks and future-facing facilities, this portfolio will help meet the demands of tenants and consumers as the digital economy continues to evolve.”

Erik van Dijk, owner of VDG Real Estate said: “The Dutch logistics market has continued to demonstrate strong growth despite recent supply chain pressures.

“As we continue to meet the growing need for logistics facilities, highly experienced stewards are required to support this growth; this we have found in Macquarie.”
