Mobion Group and Certo Capital have purchased the Hema in the center of Helmond from a consortium of investors advised by Crossroads Real Estate.
For Mobion Group and Certo Capital this is one of several inner city acquisitions in a short period of time. Last week, for example, they jointly purchased the C&A building in Den Bosch. We believe in the power of inner-city locations and the utilization of opportunities for renewal and innovation in Dutch retail cities," says Philibert Bluyssen, Mobion Group director of real estate.
The Hema store is located on the Veestraat in the center of Helmond. The retail building has a surface area of approximately 2,600 m² and is leased to the Hema for a long period. The desire of the Municipality of Helmond to strengthen the city center and the belief of buyers in the strength of city centers have led to this transaction.
Mobion Group and Certo Capital were advised in this transaction commercially by retail investment broker Retail Capital, legally by TaylorWessing, fiscally by Joanknecht and technically by Inexs Projectmanagement and Ortageo Ingenieurs. CBRE acted as asset manager and sales advisor to the seller in the deal. The consortium was legally assisted by Allen & Overy.
