The Česká Spořitelna Real Estate Fund (Nemovitostní fond České spořitelny) is buying the Bořislavka Centrum shopping and office complex from KKCG Real Estate Group. With the acquisition, the fund has increased the number of buildings under its management to 21 and the value of its real estate portfolio exceeds CZK 38 billion, REICO announced. The parties didn’t disclose the transaction price.
The complex consists of four interconnected buildings in the shape of irregular glass crystals. The total leasable area reaches over 40,000 sqm. Three-quarters of this are office space and the rest is retail space. The building is almost fully occupied, the main tenants include companies from the KKCG group. In addition to KKCG itself, the companies include Sazka, MND Group, Allwyn, KKCG Technology and KKCG REG. Volkswagen Financial Services and Pražská vodohospodářská společnost have also leased offices here on a long-term basis.
It also includes a shopping gallery with 60 shops. The construction of the complex took three years and it was opened in June 2021. The construction costs amounted to more than CZK 3.5 billion. The complex was built according to the architectural design by Aulík Fišer Architects.
“The acquisition of Bořislavka Centrum fits exactly into the strategy of the CS real estate fund (Nemovitostní fond České spořitelny) to buy the best buildings on the market leased to reputable companies,” said Tomáš Jandík, Chairman of the Board of Directors of REICO, which manages the real estate fund.
According to Petr Pujman, CEO of KKCG REG, the sale fulfilled the group’s business plan. “The valuation we have achieved is one of the highest in the domestic real estate market. KKCG Group and its subsidiaries will continue to control and use the buildings in the form of leases,” said Pujman.
Part of the CS Real Estate Fund’s strategy is to invest in properties that minimise environmental impact. The fund was established in February 2007 and is the largest and oldest Czech real estate fund. By the end of the year, over 103,000 shareholders had invested in the fund.
