A joint venture between Pictet Alternative Advisors and Brunswick Real Estate have divested the Lindu Ejendomme industrial portfolio in Copenhagen to entities owned by Blackstone-managed funds.

The portfolio comprises 14 light industrial and warehouse properties in Greater Copenhagen with a total gross lettable area of approximately 84,000sqm. All the properties are strategically located mainly southwest and northwest of Copenhagen within a 25 to 30-minute radius of the Danish capital.

Pictet and Brunswick said the portfolio comprises both single- and multi-user properties and is currently 93% leased to a diverse mix of tenants.

Linus Nilsson, head of Nordics at Pictet Alternative Advisors, said: “We have aggregated the Lindu platform in less than three years through carefully targeted acquisitions of both smaller portfolios and individual assets. In the meantime, we have been able to leverage the strength of the market and worked hard to lift the ESG profile of the assets. We are delighted to successfully exit the portfolio to a well-established institutional buyer.”

Anthony Romano, country head Denmark at Brunswick, said: “In line with Brunswick’s strategy to identify and develop sustainable investment strategies, Lindu Ejendomme provides a perfect example of asset-by-asset aggregation and active asset management with a focus on ESG. I am very proud of what the team has achieved and we are committed long-term to Denmark, a market that continues to present compelling opportunities.”

Colliers, Bruun & Hjejle and PwC Denmark advised the sellers, while CBRE, Gorrissen Federspiel, Arcadis, Nova Ambiente and PwC acted for Blackstone.
