The Hyatt Place Amsterdam Airport was originally constructed in 2014 by Volker Wessels and covers about 90,000 square feet. The 13-story hotel has 330 guestrooms and uses a select-service operating model in order to minimize operating costs.

On July 3, Avignon Capital sold the office building and retail asset Fontanella in Barcelona for $74.2 million. The 87,000-square-foot property on Plaça de Catalunya was leased to the Government of Catalunya and occupied by the Tax Administration of Catalunya since Avignon Capital acquired the property in Q1 2013. The sale coincides with the company’s asset management strategy to gain strong returns on equity for investors.
