LOGOS has announced that it has acquired two strategic logistics parks in Chennai from the Casagrand Group for Rs 7 billion. This purchase marks LOGOS’ first acquisition in India following the launch of its Indian business.
Mappedu Logistics Park and Mahindra World City are located within the established industrial corridors of Chennai, benefiting from prominent access to the Government-approved Chennai-Bangalore Industrial Corridor and the Chennai Port. The properties comprise a total Gross Lettable Area (GLA) of 2.2 million sq-ft, across a combined area of approximately 85 acres of land. Both parks are fully leased and provide further development opportunities within the sites.
Trent Iliffe, MD, LOGOS, said, “We’re very pleased to have completed our first acquisition in India, bringing on board 2.2 million sq-ft of quality logistics facilities to our Asia Pacific portfolio.
“India has one of the fastest-growing economies in the world and with a high-growth real estate sector, this market is an important part of our Asia Pacific strategy as we continue to support our tenant customers’ growth across the region. We look forward to bringing our significant regional experience and global development and design standards to India and these two new properties,” he said.
Mehul Shah, CEO of LOGOS’ Indian business, said, “We are pleased to have worked with the Casagrand Group on this strategic acquisition for LOGOS. Given Chennai’s prominence as a leading industrial hub, with access to one of the country’s largest ports, the parks are able to efficiently service the high-volume consumption markets of the greater Chennai region and the industrial corridors of Southern India.
“LOGOS will look to enhance the two parks, through an active asset management approach and by further developing the available land within the sites,” he added.
LOGOS’ Indian business is a partnership between LOGOS and Assetz Property Group, a Bengaluru-based real estate developer. The LOGOS India Logistics Venture, with commitments from Canadian investors Ivanhoé Cambridge and QuadReal Property Group, has $800 million in investment capacity to develop and own high-quality, modern logistics facilities in key logistics markets of India.
