The information was exclusively gathered by Vida Imobiliária (from Grupo Iberinmo), which knows that the deal is currently being finalized. The buyer is a new property investment vehicle that is being launched by Bankinter in partnership with Sonae Sierra, and which is already being sold to the Spanish bank's private banking clients. The seller is Imosal, a company in the Fibeira universe.
Although the final value involved in the transaction is not yet known, as it was possible to ascertain from some market sources, the building will have reached the market with a asking price above 200 million euros.
Opened in 1998, the Atrium combines a commercial gallery with 59 stores and nine floors of offices. Located in the heart of Lisbon's CBD, at Praça Duque de Saldanha, it occupies almost a block at the confluence of Fontes Pereira de Melo and Casal Ribeiro avenues, with a gross building area of 66,000 sqm, spread over 12 floors above ground and 6 parking spaces in the basement.
Vida Imobiliária tried to contact Bankinter without success, while Sonae Sierra preferred not to comment on the information.
This is not the first time that Bankinter and Sonae Sierra have joined forces to invest in the real estate market, with the Spanish socimi Ores and its homonymous company in Portugal already active, focused on the purchase of retail assets in the Iberian Peninsula .
