Round Hill Capital and Heitman have invested in the Dutch residential sector, teaming up with local asset managers.

Round Hill said it agreed a joint venture with Propertize to buy the Woningportefeuille company, a Dutch residential property portfolio, for €89m. The 976 units cover 71,300sqm. 

Heitman, meanwhile, has bought two residential portfolios in Amsterdam for around €76m.

The investment manager is acting on behalf of institutional investors and formed a joint venture with Orange Capital Partners to acquire the assets.

The portfolios include 400 rented residential units and 12 retail units across 24 buildings, with a total area of 28,400sqm.

Heitman said the assets are in supply-constrained sub-markets of the Dutch capital, in “vibrant, infill locations”.

Gordon Black, senior managing director and co-head of Europe at Heitman, said the investment capitalised on the “highly supply-constrained state” of the Amsterdam residential market.

“The market benefits from favourable macro-economic trends,” Black said.

For Round Hill, the deal is its third in the Dutch residential sector. 

Last month, the US manager agreed to pay €365m for a 3,786-unit residential property portfolio sold by Dutch housing association Wooninvesteringsfonds.

Michael Bickford, founder and chief executive, last month said the Dutch housing market represented an attractive investment opportunity, with a positive fundamental backdrop and stable cashflow.

In May, Dutch houses recorded their first increase in prices for five years.
