Credit Suisse has obtained a €90 mln medium term credit facility from German lender pbb for the acquisition of a prime office tower in Warsaw.
Two real estate funds managed by Credit Suisse inked a deal with developer Strabag to purchase the Astoria office building, which is fully let to a mix of international and state-owned companies. The transaction volume was not disclosed.
'Astoria is one of the most prestigious buildings in Warsaw, situated in a superb micro location and characterised by its high construction quality and sustainability,' said Holger Herb, head EMEA at Credit Suisse Asset Management Global Real Estate.
