Gide supported FREY with its acquisition of Park Handlowy Matarnia in Gdansk from Ingka Centres. The value of the transaction was approximately €105 million. This is FREY's first acquisition in Poland.
Park Handlowy Matarnia – the largest shopping mall in the Tri-City and one of the largest of its kind in the region – completes the company's portfolio and is a prelude to FREY's further expansion into the Polish market.
From Gide, the transaction was led by Marcin Muszel and Rafał Osetek.
The transaction and due diligence team also included: Ewa Żbikowska, Ewelina Tokarczyk, Joanna Karkoszka, Magdalena Kalinowska, Agnieszka Myszor, Michał Wiśniewski, Magdalena Molczyk, Karolina Szczepańska, Filip Ruciński, Hubert Karniewski and Szymon Chwaliński.
"We are delighted to have advised the client on this strategic first acquisition in Poland. We are grateful to FREY for the trust placed in us" said Marcin Muszel, partner in Gide’s real property practice.
We would also like to thank CBRE and Arcadis, FREY's advisors, as well as Wardynski & Partners, Ingka Centres' legal advisor, for their good cooperation on this project.
