IGD SIIQ S.p.A., a retail real estate firm listed in the STAR segment of the Milan Stock Exchange, has acquired the property used for the shopping mall and the offices located in the Grand Rondo’ Shopping Center in Crema.

The shopping mall, which already generates returns, has a very stabilized market and an excellent location.  It is comprised of offices and 38 stores covering a total area with a GLA of approximately 11,400 square meters and is leased to Gran Rondò srl based on a six year contract which is renewable for an additional six years.

Filippo Carbonari, of IGD SIIQ S.p.A.’s CEO., commented: “This transaction is in line with our strategy which calls for, during this period of market tension, limiting cash expenditures to transactions like this one which are capable of generating income immediately and which help to reduce our portfolio risk while still offering good margins”.
