International real estate firm expands to London with acquisition
An international real estate company has acquired the London-based property firm Helix pending FCA approval.
Real estate developer Hines, with european headquarters in London, is also seeking to expand into France, Germany, Italy and the Nordic states.
Helix has a dedicated team of 60 professionals providing a spectrum of property management services, managing a UK-wide commercial real estate portfolio, valued at over £3.5 bn.
Lars Huber, CEO for Europe at Hines, said: “This important acquisition represents the springboard for the launch of our Management Services and Operations platform across Europe.
“Delivering the very best workplace and living experience for our customers has always been our philosophy, but as a new age of technology-driven, well-being and ESG focused real estate dawns, we’re excited to be recalibrating and expanding our offering.”
Amy Soar, Helix CEO, said: “Becoming part of the Hines family, one of the biggest and most respected names in global real estate, represents a positive and exciting new chapter for our business.
“The move represents a great fit for Helix and our clients as we can offer a more holistic approach, with the opportunity to access a wider range of services, skills, knowledge and expertise from a global leader. We are looking forward to exciting and successful times ahead.”
