Florentinum project earns banks' trust

Penta's real estate project, the Florentinum, has obtained a loan of EUR 110 million (CZK 2.75 billion), which is one of the biggest financing deals in the real estate sector this year. The loan will be used to finance the construction of Florentinum and its drawdown will commence in early May 2013.

The financing was provided by a consortium of three banks – UniCredit Bank Czech Republic, Komerční Banka and Raiffeisenlandesbank Oberösterreich and coordinated by UniCredit Bank. Total investment into the Florentinum project is approximately EUR 160 million.

"We are delighted with the level of trust in our project. Obtaining this amount of financing at the time of construction is the result of a very positive development in our lease contract drive," said Petr Palička, Penta Investments' Project Director. At the moment, Florentinum's occupancy is just under 50 %, which is approximately 28,000 sq m and the facility should open in the fourth quarter of 2013.
