Intelligent Real Estate Investments - Hines

In 2016, Hines and German investment company Universal-Investment acquired 229-249 Buchanan Street, a retail asset on Glasgow’s prime shopping street. The acquisition was made for an institutional real estate fund on the platform of Universal-Investment, administered and managed on behalf of Bayerische Versorgungskammer (BVK), Germany’s largest pension scheme group.

The asset comprises ground floor retail, with an agreement for lease secured with a serviced apartments operator for a comprehensive reconfiguration of the upper floors.
