Following a major valuation exercise carried out by PAREF Investment Management teams, PAREF Group, through its JV with GA Smart Building, has finalized the sale of Gaïa office building in Nanterre.
"We are delighted to announce the completion of this major transaction, which demonstrates the expertise of PAREF Group and our ability to create long-term value for our shareholders and all our partners," said Antoine Castro, Chairman and CEO.
Located in the heart of the Bergères eco-neighborhood, close to La Défense and with immediate access to transportation, shops and services, "Gaïa" offers 11,100 square meters of rental space as well as numerous quality services: landscaped terraces, flexible meeting spaces, as well as an inter-company restaurant, co-working space and gaming zone. All of these services are geared towards the well-being of users and are attractive to tenants.
The asset also fits into its urban fabric and takes environmental aspects into account in its design and management, in line with the CSR approach defined by the PAREF Group. "Gaïa" has been awarded HQE and BBC Effinergie certifications, which are part of an urban regeneration process. As part of this approach, beehives have also been installed on its roof, in collaboration with the Apiterra association.
