EMEA Industrial & Logistics Team Scoops Hat-Trick Of Awards Across The Region

CBRE’s EMEA Industrial & Logistics team has experienced a flurry of award wins across the EMEA region in recent weeks winning three separate awards at the Commercial Real Estate Awards in Moscow, the UK Property Week Awards and EuropaProperty’s South Eastern Europe Real Estate Awards.

Winning the Golden Brick Award for Industrial Leasing Deal of the Year, our Russian team was recognised for its work for PNK Group on the letting of the new 50,000 sqm multi-temperature distribution centre for Holiday Classic, one of the largest food retailers in Russia. The team was instrumental in structuring a complex deal which included the letting of the new warehouse. It was the largest regional deal in 2014 and one of the largest in the Russian industrial market.

At the UK Property Week Awards, our team was recognised for delivering “a 33% increase in billing, transacting 11% more floor space, and providing clients with a seamless integrated service across sectors, locations and property types” throughout the UK. The team’s key achievements included Project Owl, a speculative development partnership between Goodman and Anglesea Capital to deliver 930,000 sq ft of prime logistics space in Andover, Derby and Kingsnorth.

Our Romanian industrial team was also honoured recently at the EuropaProperty SEE Real Estate Awards, winning Industrial Agency of the Year.

Amaury Gariel, Managing Director EMEA Industrial & Logistics, commented:

“Last year was very successful, not just for our team but for the sector as a whole, making these awards even more valuable. Industrial and logistics has become an increasingly attractive asset class to investors as market recovers with more activity from occupiers. CBRE’s recent Investor Intentions Survey showed that there is strong investor preference for logistics assets and this is well in excess of the overall level of investment activity in the sector, suggesting that demand is much stronger than supply.

“This fantastic run of wins reflects the passion and strong performance of CBRE’s Industrial and Logistics team across the region and is testament to the high quality of service we provide to our clients.”
