BentallGreenOak continues its growth in France
BentallGreenOak (BGO) has plans to continue growing its business in France through the acquisition of a site in the Angers region of France and commencing construction for a new 25,000-square-meter (269,000-square-foot) logistics facility.
The deal bolsters BGO’s position in the French logistics market, adding to the more than €700 million ($823 million) of logistics asset investments in France since 2017, with commitments to continue adding new assets and developments to its portfolio across its key target sectors of logistics, office, data centers and life sciences.
Reflecting the firm’s growing French portfolio, BGO also announced the hiring of Julien Bernheim as principal, based in the Paris office. He was previously at Invesco Real Estate, where he was responsible for acquisitions and disposals for the firm in France. Prior to that, Bernheim began his career at Compagnie La Lucette in 2007, and then joined MGPA (eventually acquired by BlackRock) in 2008.
