According to BME Growth, quoted by EjePrime, these commercial stores are located at Avenida da Liberdade and rua Rosa Araújo, in the centre of Lisbon. The assets located at Avenida da Liberdade were acquired by Tander Liberdade for 3.3 million euro, and the ones located at rua Rosa Araújo were acquired by Tander Douro for 10.4 million euro.
This operation concludes the investment carried out by Tander in October, when it acquired a set of four shops for 20.9 million euro within the same buildings where the shops it bought now are located.
The 9 shops were purchased from Portuguese developer Avenue, and they are all located within building Liberdade 203, with a total combined area of 3.015 sqm. The sale was carried out in two stages, the deed for 4 of the 9 shops, including Dsquared2 was signed on the 16th of October and during the second stage, on the 15th of December, the deed for the remaining 5 shops, including Lúcia Piloto and Wines by Heart was signed.
For Aniceto Viegas, Avenue’s general manager, this sale «reinforced the confidence Tander has in Avenue. Last year we were the chosen partner for their first investment in the country with the acquisition of four shops at Aliados 107, in Porto», he recalled.
Cushman & Wakefield and JLL advised this deal. Carlos Vieira Neto, Associate at C&W’s investment department stated that «we are very happy for being involved, for the third consecutive year, in the largest high street retail transaction within the Portuguese market.
