Philippine investor buys into Silesia Business Park
Buildings C and D include a total of 24,600 sqm
POLAND Manila-based investment group ISOC Holdings has acquired buildings C and D of the Silesia Business Park in Katowice for EUR 59 mln.
The complex was developed by Skanska and comprises four buildings, the first two of which were sold in 2015. Buildings C and D include a total of 24,600 sqm as well as 250 parking spaces on two underground levels. The two buildings are already 72 pct leased to tenants such as PwC, Accenture and NGA Human Resources. “With its booming BPO and SSC market, a highly educated labour force, good infrastructure already in place, and the quality of international investors, Katowice is ISOCs most significant entry into the European market,” said Michael Cosiquien, chairman of ISOC. During the negotiations, Skanska was advised by GVA and Colliers International, while ISOC was advised by Augusta Cracovia and CBRE. Legal advisers for the transaction were Hogan Lovells for the purchaser and Dentons for the seller. “Over the last few years, the CEE commercial real estate market has seen an increasing flow of newcomers from Asia, South Africa and the Middle East. In 2016, Skanska divested a hotel in Warsaw to a Qatari investor and now we are delighted to welcome our first partner from the Philippines. The growing awareness of Polish regional markets among newcomers is a very encouraging sign for the Polish and CEE investment market,” says Adrian Karczewicz, head of divestments at Skanska’s commercial development unit in CEE.

Building C of the complex is already LEED Gold certified, while Building D is expected to receive the certification in Q2 2019.
