Norton Rose Fulbright has advised Bank Pekao on the EUR 40 million financing for AB Tewox's acquisition of a five-retail-park portfolio in Poland. Wardynski & Partners advised Tewox on both the acquisition and the financing.
The five retail parks are located in Glowno, Swidnica, Przemysl, Kalisz, and Pulawy. The portfolio covers more than 36,000 square meters of leasable area and boasts a nearly 100% occupancy rate. The anchor tenant is Jeronimo Martins Polska, the operator of the Biedronka grocery chain.
Tewox is a fund managed by Lords LB Asset Management. It was set up in April 2021 and invests in grocery-anchored retail real estate in the Baltic States, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Poland, and Germany. Lords LB focuses on real estate and private equity investment strategies.
