Convenience shopping centre Emiclaer in Amersfoort is now owned by Urban Interest

6 January 2021

We have been building a stable portfolio with a healthy real estate mix for some time now. In addition to residential real estate (which we have recently purchased a lot) expanding our portfolio with convenience stores certainly contributes to this as well. We are therefore delighted with the newly acquired Emiclaer shopping center in Amersfoort.

On December 30, we closed this transaction for an amount of € 47 million with former owner Wereldhave. The shopping center offers over 80 retail stores and is well-visited, it receives about 4.2 million visitors annually. Partly due to the convenient accessibility, free parking facilities and the supply of at least 60% of convenience stores, the shopping center is very popular in the area. Urban Interest is looking forward to further optimization of the shopping center and sees a healthy future for retailers in the area, especially after the corona era.

Wereldhave was assisted in this transaction by JLL and Houthoff handled the transaction on behalf of Urban Interest.
