PAREF - Acquisition in Franklin Tower


Press release

Paris, October 1st, 2019

PAREF finalized the acquisition of 6 floors in Franklin Tower

Following the purchase agreement signed in July 2019, PAREF Group finalized the acquisition of 6 floors in Franklin Tower at La Défense (Grand Paris) from 3 funds managed by BNP Paribas REIM on September 30th, 2019.

This acquisition demonstrates the new strategy of the REIT, an increase in the value of the investment property owned by PAREF through a proactive asset management allowing a repositioning on larger assets mainly located in Grand Paris.

The 6 floors, located on the higher part of the tower, represent approximately 12,250 m² and are rented to prime tenants. This asset benefits an excellent location with a strong visibility and proximity to transport.

“We are pleased to finalize this acquisition, a mark of the Group's capacity to implement its strategy in a highly competitive market and to manage large assets.” 

Antoine Onfray – Deputy CEO

“PAREF continues its strategy based on 3 pillars, notably (i) owned asset, (ii) management for third-party retail investors and (iii) management for institutional investors, to create value in long term for its shareholders. We are delighted to strengthen the first pillar through this acquisition.”

Antoine Castro – CEO

“As part of the dynamic management of our assets, we are pleased to finalize the sale of these offices historically owned by 3 SCPI funds, which have delivered excellent performance since their acquisitions.”

Guillaume Delattre – Deputy CEO of BNP Paribas REIM France

PAREF was advised by Wargny Katz (notary) and Franklin law firm (lawyer). BNP Paribas REIM was advised by VH15 (notary) and BNP Paribas Real Estate Transaction France and Knight Frank (broker) in a co-exclusive sale mandate.
