JUTTU signs with VABELD in Roeselare
JUTTU, the new brand by AS ADVENTURE, has signed a lease with VABELD in the Ooststraat in Roeselare.
After the opening of a JUTTU on the Meir in Antwerp and in the Noordzandstraat in Bruges, and the planned opening in Ghent, this will be the fourth location for the new format.
JUTTU will move into the building on 20-22 Ooststraat, currently leased to the brands Vero Moda and Jack & Jones. The property is 700 m² on the ground floor, which makes it one of the largest on the street.
The arrival of a brand as JUTTU confirms the attractiveness of Roeselare, the hometown of VABELD, as a leading shopping city in Flanders.
Furthermore Vabeld signed in recent months a number of other leases, such as Carrefour in Dendermonde, Zeeman in Herentals, Kwantum in Kuurne, She Fits in Gent-Mariakerke, …
New purchase in bucharest A1 Industrial Park
After acquiring a number of land plots and unfinished buildings a couple of months ago, Vabeld has now acquired 2 more properties in the A1 Industrial Park from private Italian investors.
The larger property is rented to Augsburg, a car parts distribution company, until 2024. The smaller property of approximately 3000 square meter is almost completed and we are confident we will be able to let it in the coming months.
At the same time, Vabeld has signed an option for a 5 hectare land plot and an 8000 square meter income generating building in the same area.

Vabeld has purchased its fourth property on Lord Street in just 2 years time. The BHS unit, with an impressive frontage of more than 40 meters and a sales area of nearly 5000 square meters, is the largest acquisition outside of Belgium. It was a sale and leaseback transaction in which we were advised by Mason Owen. This acquisition ensures that the UK is now the second most important country in our portfolio.
Entry in Romanian property market
After consideration of the Romanian real estate market for over two years, Vabeld has now successfully completed its first acquisition in Bucharest. Notwithstanding Vabeld’s long term focus on the retail property market, Vabeld is convinced of the potential of the logistics and semi-industrial market in and around Bucharest and has acquired 15 hectares of prime industrial land adjacent to the A1 highway on the western fringe of the capital.
The land is vacant except for two unfinished buildings totaling over 11.000 m2 of surface area which Varoed, Vabeld’s Romanian subsidiary, will seek to finish in the next half year. It is Varoed’s intention to develop build-to-suit projects on the remainder of the land.
Whereas additional acquisitions in the semi-industrial property market are being considered, Varoed’s objective is to build up a high quality retail portfolio in Romania, with a focus on Bucharest.
Romania is the fifth country where Vabeld has direct property investments.
