The investment fund, which owns AQ Acentor and Green Logistics, is working on two logistics complexes in Sevilla and Málaga spanning 160,000 m2, as well as a new residential development in Cataluña.

With a presence in the Spanish market since 2014, the German fund manager Aquila Capital has become one of the most high-profile investors in the new stage of growth of the Spanish real estate market. To date, it has invested more than €1.46 billion in all types of properties: from housing – a business that it channels through its own developer AQ Acentor-, to hotels and logistics assets – which it manages through its firm Green Logistics.

Its last major operation in Spain was an agreement with the Día supermarket group to develop a logistics platform spanning 69,000 square metres on its Illescas Green Logistics Park, in the Toledan town of the same name. “The signing of this agreement is excellent news for Aquila Capital and for our Illescas Green Logistics Park in Spain. The project is destined to become a leading example for the logistics sector in Spain and southern Europe, and joins our projects in Azambuja in Portugal, Tortona in Italy and Germany, which will also be leading examples in the sustainable logistics business internationally”, explains Sven Schoel, CEO of AQ Acentor and spokesperson for the German fund in Spain.
