Deka Immobilien GmbH has acquired the Tesco Distribution Centre in the Prague metropolitan area in the Czech Republic. The logistics property is part of the portfolio held by the open-ended property fund Deka-ImmobilienEuropa. The vendor is Tesco Group PLC, the world’s third largest grocery retailer. The purchase has been implemented as part of a sale and lease-back agreement. Cushman & Wakefield acted on behalf of Tesco Group PLC.
The floor area of around 60,100 sqm is fully let on a long-term basis to Tesco Stores CR, a subsidiary of Tesco Group PLC. The property is situated in an established logistics location with good transport links only 14 km outside Prague. This is the second purchase of a Tesco logistics facility for Deka-ImmobilienEuropa in 2009. In summer, the fund invested some €34 million in a property in the Warsaw metropolitan area, Poland.
