Gecina finalizes its acquisition of “Carreau de Neuilly” from the CRPN in exchange for two assets and a balancing payment
Gecina signed an asset swap agreement on November 7, 2019 with the Caisse de Retraite du Personnel Navigant (CRPN) enabling it to acquire the “Carreau de Neuilly” building at 106-116 avenue du Général de Gaulle in Neuilly-sur-Seine, on the Central Business District’s Historical Axis linking the Champs Elysées and La Défense, for €306m excluding duties. This office building, which is 90% occupied, offers around 34,000 sq.m of floor space.
In exchange, Gecina is selling two fully-let mature office buildings in Neuilly and Paris for a total of €238m excluding duties, with the price differential covered by a balancing payment.
With this operation, Gecina is selling:
- A 17,500 sq.m building at 12-16 boulevard du General Leclerc in Neuilly-sur-Seine;
- A building located at 22 rue du Général Foy in Paris’ 8th arrondissement with nearly 3,200 sq.m of space.
On this operation, Gecina was advised by the law firm De Pardieu Brocas et Maffei and the notary’s office Oudot & Associés. For its part, the CRPN was advised by the law firm Gide Loyrette Nouel, the notary’s office Cheuvreux, the law firm Arsene Taxand and DB Real Estate Consulting.
