AEW’s Launch Of A New Urban Light Industrial Strategy Platform

Clifford Chance has advised AEW on on the launch of a new urban light industrial strategy platform with 475 million euros of start-up equity.

The platform is structured as a scalable partnership, targeting the development of an initial portfolio of circa 800 million euros. The investors that have committed to the platform are long-term partners of AEW in the logistics sector and include PGGM, Allianz Real Estate and Crédit Agricole Assurances.
