Investor Information

CBRE Global Investors, in a joint venture with IBA Capital Partners, has acquired Gran Vía 18, an asset of 5,500 square meters located in the center of Madrid. The seller has been a fund managed by TPG Sixth Street Partners. The property consists of a basement and seven floors above ground, and will undergo extensive renovation to be completed by the end of 2018, with the aim of transforming it into a flagship of four plants and upper levels will be remodeled to provide modern offices and high quality. Upon completion, the property will obtain LEED Gold certification.

(TPG) will again sell Gran Vía 18, the building that it acquired
almost three years ago in a public auction to the Community of
Madrid for 18.6 million euros. The North American fund waits to
receive this Wednesday green light to the administrative
procedure that will allow its reconversion of offices to a building
that will combine, according to the consulted sources, the
commercial and hotel uses.

The building in question today hosts different registration offices
of the regional government. However, unlike what has happened
with many other buildings located on the Gran Vía, the number 18
would not need a change of use, since, as advertised on the
Addmeet portal, the property also counted as uses compatible
hotel and commercial. Hence, from the administrative point of
view, it is not necessary to request a change of use

TPG was founded in a family office, which started and is
headquartered in Fort Worth and San Francisco. The company
now has more than $ 73 billion under management with investment and operational teams in 16 offices around the world.
