Primonial REIM annonces the acquisition of its first senior services residence in Belgium
Primonial REIM – already operating in Belgium with a portfolio of residential and commercial properties under management – is conducting its first healthcare real estate acquisition in Belgium by entering into the forward sale of a senior services residence on behalf of its real-estate fund the SCPI Primovie.
The future senior services residence will be delivered in the third quarter of 2022. Covering a total surface area of more than 8,200 m², it will consist of 119 one-bedroom and two-bedroom homes offering a wide range of services (restaurant, lounge bar, spa, gym, indoor pool and hair salon) for the comfort and enjoyment of its future residents.
The property, which will be co-promoted by Nexity and its subsidiary Aegide, will be located in Court-Saint-Etienne, just 40 km from Brussels, in a favourable economic and demographic region (high pension level, elderly population and longer life expectancy). Nestled in a new eco-district near a commercial centre, the residence will be easily accessible via public transport and by car.
There will be a 15-year firm long-term lease on the property, which will be fully operated on delivery by DOMITYS, a subsidiary of Nexity and leader on the senior services residence market in France.
Primonial REIM Board Chairman Grégory Frapet said: « As a leader in healthcare real estate in Europe, Primonial REIM is forging ahead – with this initial acquisition in Belgium – with its development by investing in a sector making a positive social impact, driven by strong demand and promising growth prospects. With this type of transaction, Primonial REIM is funding new housing options for seniors, designed to make everyday life easier and promote socialisation through a wide array of services aimed at meeting their needs. This deal, conducted for our property investment trust Primovie, will provide long-term income visibility to our unitholders thanks to a 15-year lease signed with the sector leader in France: DOMITYS. »
Primonial REIM was advised on the commercial aspects of the deal by Codabel, on legal matters by Clifford Chance and on technical points by BPM.
