Shopping centre Ozols in Riga sold to Finnish real estate fund Titanium

KS Holding, a real estate company co-owned by Kesko, Arturas Rakauskas and Zabolis Partners, sold Ozols shopping centre in Riga to the investment fund Titanium, a new player in the Baltics this year. It is Titanium’s first purchase in Latvia. Newsec in the Baltics represented the seller in the transaction.

The 30,000-square-metre shopping centred Ozols is the Kesko-Senukai flagship store in Latvia. The SC currently serves as Senukai main e-shop pickup point in Riga. Ozols SC is special for its unique feature, a big oak growing in the middle of the complex. The asset was awarded the BREEAM In-Use “Very Good” environmental certification.

KS Holding acquired the property in 2016 and undertook a massive redevelopment project by changing an outdated shopping centre’s Azur concept into brand new DIY destination store as well as enlarging the GLA. The property is anchored by Kesko-Senukai and RIMI supermarket on long term basis. The Property was acquired by Finnish Special Mutual Fund Titanium Baltic Real Estate.

According to Andrius Švolka, Head of Transactions at Newsec in the Baltics, selective retail type of real estate in the Baltics is still well demand by both local and international investors. This property checks majority of the requirements from investor perspective such as: new construction, leading tenants (Senukai and Rimi) operating in resilient segments (DIY and grocery), long WAULT, BREEAM certification, good location, etc.
