Sonelec will thrive in Capellen

Posted in Industrial, Lease, Lux Business Areas | Tagged , , , | Comments

RealCorp Luxembourg — LEASED: Lease Industrial — Rue Pafebruch, CapellenTransaction brokered by

Reliable Capellen property ideal for Sonelec

This solid industrial property nestles in the fast-growing Parc d’Activités de Capellen close to the Belgian border. It can take advantage of the A6 motorway or European route E25 from Luxembourg to Brussels. Alternatively, there are frequent bus services to Luxembourg and to various locations to the west.

Originally built to accommodate a wine wholesaler, the spacious site thereafter hosted the ALD Automotive centre. Its concrete structure offers a storage facility with office spaces. Most importantly, it also has a large external area which is fenced and secured and extensive on-site car parking.

The Parc d’Activités has contributed greatly to Capellen’s development, with NSPA as the largest employer. However, many smaller companies also thrive in financial and technology services, pharmaceuticals, engineering, food and insurance. This is, therefore, an ideal environment for an expanding firm such as Sonelec.

New occupant: Sonelec SARL

Created in 2015,  Sonelec SARL is an Electricity Trading Company. A wholesaler, they specialise in the purchase and sale of electrical equipment in the residential, tertiary and industrial sectors.

Sonelec’s goal is to save customers time and money by facilitating projects and purchases. Because they handle everything from daily purchasing to stock management, it is not enough just to source and supply correct components. They must also handle sales and delivery safely, quickly and efficiently.

Why this move for Sonelec?

The company is expanding  and this growth in activity made their previous location in Bertrange no longer convenient. It suffered from a lack of space and therefore from slow, tedious access for truck deliveries.

Inevitably, Sonelec had to relieve this pressure. Thus, the hunt was on for a better location, as well as for a more accessible space to welcome clients and handle deliveries with maximum efficiency.

If you don’t see an opportunity… create one!

This kind of property is rare on the market, so RealCorp had to think creatively to find something suitable for Sonelec.

We advised the owner that splitting the site could accommodate two distinct tenants such that each enjoys their own access. Further, we pointed out that one can often let smaller units more easily.

As a result of this presentation, Sonelec happily signed a long-term lease in July 2020. With their taking occupation in September 2020, the site is now 100% let.

Small offices available to sub-let

If you want to lease small office units, we can do it on site. Please, contact us!

Bijou: JTC leases striking new offices

Posted in Lease, Office | Tagged , , , , , , | Comments

Image of Beautiful Bijou building with contemporary exoskeleton facade in grey concrete featuring flower petals and leaves. Text over the images declares LEASED:  Office 17 boulevard Raiffeisen, Luxembourg City: Gasperich Transaction brokered by RealCorp

Bijou: New jewel of Luxembourg City in Gasperich

The beautiful Bijou stands out from its neighbours, due to its contemporary exoskeleton facade featuring flower petals and leaves. Owned by Grossfeld PAP and delivered in June 2020, Bijou offers 5821 sqm of grade A office space over six floors, with a BREEAM rating of “very good”. It is one of several mid-sized office buildings in the dynamic Cloche d’Or area that are either just finished, under construction or planned. We know already that one of them will be occupied by Regus and another by a government entity.

Bijou is prominently located alongside the Boulevard Raiffeisen, between the iconic Deloitte and Alter Domus headquarters, within walking distance of the Auchan shopping centre. Regular bus shuttles serve the area and the building will also benefit from the new Tram station. The Tram will connect the area with the Central Station, Kirchberg and, at a later stage, the airport terminal. An extensive Park & Ride lies about 10 minutes away by car.

New occupant: Bijou is perfect for JTC

The new tenant, JTC, has a gorgeous new website, well worth exploring. It reveals that this global wealth management company employs about 900 people worldwide who administer assets of c.US$130 billion. The timeline on the page Our History reveals that JTC began in Jersey in 1987 and that Luxembourg became its fifth international location in 2009. Since then, it has expanded through many other countries, opening its most recent office in Dublin in 2020.

The Stronger Together page explains who they are and how and why they foster a culture of collaboration and mutual support. More, the About Us page describes JTC’s mission, vision and values, which reach high and wide. The beautiful and innovative Bijou seems a perfect home for the Luxembourg branch of such a company.

Why move to Bijou?

JTC has been growing organically and through various acquisitions which resulted in managing several locations. Consequently, they felt it necessary to integrate all teams on the same spot. They also wanted to send a positive message to the market by seeking relocation into a new and prominent property.

RealCorp and JTC took advantage of the lockdown to carry out a stay-or-go analysis involving a selection of high-end alternatives on the market. Bijou came out tops!

Effectively, in Bijou, they will initially occupy a similar amount of space as in their previous locations. It offers the class, comfort and facilities that are appropriate for staff and clients of a high-powered wealth management business. More importantly, however, with an open-plan layout over two entire floors, the move enables them to plan for future growth while maintaining stability.

Ending 2020 on a higher note with Bijou

Thus, in July 2020, JTC was happy to sign a long-term lease, effective December 2020. So they will be moving in during the festive season and will see in the New Year in their new home. May they go from strength to strength.

From RealCorp’s perspective, this was the first significant letting operation (a third of the entire Bijou building) after the awful “summer of Covid-19”. We are glad to have had the opportunity to facilitate this transaction and look forward with renewed inspiration and energy to many more before Christmas!

LEASED: Period property Rue Pierre d’Aspelt

Posted in Lease, Lux Business Areas, Office | Tagged , , | Comments
RealCorp Luxembourg LEASED: Office in Rue Pierre d'Aspelt, Luxembourg City: Ville Haute - CBD

Property in Luxembourg City: Ville Haute – CBD

Garden of the new home of Sistema Finance in Rue Pierre d'Aspelt
Garden of Sistema Finance’s new home

This graceful building in Rue Pierre d’Aspelt, surrounded by greenery, enjoys the choicest location in Luxembourg CBD. Owned by a local private landlord, this late-19th century period property has a large private parking area with several external car bays.

The area is known for the British and French Embassies and several legal firms including Clifford Chance and AKD. Also, it offers easy access to banks, business hotels and other services. Leisure facilities nearby include several restaurants, as well as the attractive and relaxing Parc Edith Klein.

New Occupant: Sistema Finance

The new tenant of this lovely space is Sistema Finance S.A. (Luxembourg), the international holding platform of Sistema PJFSC, the largest public investment holding in Russia.

Sistema PJSFC is a diversified conglomerate with an impressive investment track record, benefiting from strong expertise in more than 15 sectors. Sistema PJSFC is listed on the London and Moscow stock exchange. It has been the preferred partner for institutional foreign capital investing in Russia for more than 25 years. It is also one of the largest owners and managers of real estate in Moscow.

Why Move to Rue Pierre d’Aspelt?

Due to the acquisition of other companies, Sistema Finance needed to relocate. Therefore, they wanted to move from their previous offices in Avenue Monterey to larger and higher quality offices in the vicinity.

Transaction Info

RealCorp had let to Sistema in the past. Thus it was logical for them to entrust us to find suitable new offices. They confirmed their interest in the Pierre d’Aspelt property shortly after it was put on the market.

Accordingly, we were able to offer them a long-term lease assignment with IQ-EQ Luxembourg.

Important Dates

The contract was signed in July 2020, with an effective date of September 2020. So this month we celebrate the change and wish Sistema a smooth move into their new, attractive and more spacious offices.

This newsletter includes Properties in Gare and other Luxembourg localities.

Jonathan Morand and Victor Brichaut joined RealCorp on 1 September 2020. Read about them in this newsetter which we sent to our mailing list on the same day. And you can also enjoy our latest Featured Properties.

  

New faces, new energy

After the strangest summer in Luxembourg’s recent history, it’s great to have a full team back on the job … and with two exciting additions to our ranks.

We are delighted to welcome to RealCorp today Jonathan Morand and Victor Brichaut. Here, we introduce them, and also offer you as usual our latest Featured Properties.

Jonathan Morand

Joining us as an Associate Director (Occupier Markets) is Jonathan Morand.

Jonathan began his career with Regus Luxembourg in 2007, quickly progressing to Centre Manager. By 2012 he was an Account Manager at DTZ (now Cushman & Wakefield), specialising in office rentals and sales.

When the Savills Group opened in Luxembourg in 2016, Jonathan joined them as a Senior Account Manager. His local real estate market knowledge enabled him to participate in the development of the brand in the Grand Duchy. After numerous local and international transactions, he became Head of Office Agency in 2019.

Jonathan comes to us with strong ambitions, eager and determined to help us develop RealCorp’s brand and image in these challenging times. Welcome, Jonathan!

Victor Brichaut

Victor Brichaut brings desirable skills to his post as an Analyst (Valuation and Advisory).

While studying Management and Finance at the University of Brussels, Victor set up a non-profit organisation to reactivate abandoned buildings in Brussels. He obtained his Master’s degree in 2016, but after a first job at AGFA as Junior Business Controller, he realised that he wanted to focus on real estate. Thus, at the beginning of 2019, Victor became a Valuation & Deals Analyst at Goodman, learning Valuation from a technical point of view.

SUMMER SUCCESS

We closed several deals in July. Follow us on our Blog, Twitter or LinkedIn to be sure not to miss future posts about:

  • Sistema Finance’s move to an elegant CBD period property.
  • Sonelec’s spacious new industrial premises in Capellen.
  • JTC taking one third of exquisite Bijou in Cloche d’Or, Gasperich.
