Europe-focused investment fund Gramercy Property Europe has agreed to acquire a 74.9% stake in a portfolio of logistics assets in Germany and France, from Gramercy Property Trust.

This will give the fund a total stake of 94.9% in the portfolio, following its acquisition of a 20% stake from Goodman Europe Development Trust on 31 May 2016.

The buildings are fully leased to single tenants, with more than 60% of the rent due from Amazon.
