SPREF II Pte. Ltd., a Singapore-domiciled, is targeting the office market in India. Completed in 2017, WaveRock comprises 4 office towers with a total leasable area of approximately 2.4 million square feet. The asset is located in the Gachibowli financial district – a high-growth IT hub and established employment corridor of Hyderabad. The asset is fully occupied and is home to marquee tenants such as Apple, TCS, Accenture, DBS and GAP IT.
SPREF's strategy is to leverage structural trends in six tier one cities to build a long-term, cash flow producing office portfolio by acquiring a blend of develop-to-core, forward purchases, and stabilized or stabilizing assets. The six target cities are Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune, Chennai and National Capital Region. SPREF II has equity commitments of USD 500 million from its investors.
Rushabh Desai, Asia Pacific CEO of Allianz Real Estate, said: “This is one of the marquee commercial developments in India and is a terrific addition to Allianz’s office portfolio in 24/7 global cities. Our first investment in SPREF II, SP Infocity Pune, is outperforming its business plan. Office investments in India continue to offer attractive risk-adjusted returns.”
Rajesh Agarwal, CEO of Shapoorji Pallonji Investment Advisors, said “The acquisition of WaveRock represents the confidence of global institutional investors in the Indian commercial real estate growth story. This investment is in line with our vision of creating a sustainable commercial real estate portfolio across key metros in India.”
