The SYN PROP & TECH (Cyrela Commercial Properties S.A. Empreendimentos e Participações) is a leading Brazilian Company of real estate acquisition, lease, sales, development and operation. The Company focuses in the segments of high-end corporate buildings and shopping malls, with investments mainly in the states of São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, and is part of projects located in Minas Gerais, Goiás and Bahia.
With over 16 years of experience in the segment, SYN is the result of the spin-off in 2007 of the activities related to commercial real estate of Cyrela Brazil Realty.
The Company has knowledge and experience in several technical aspects of performance and occupation, which leads to assets with a high standard of quality and sophistication, helping the Company to consistently achieve occupancy rates higher than those verified in the market.
Currently, SYN has around 244,000 sqm in leasing areas under its operation.
In the segments of Triple A and Class A Corporate Buildings, the Company’s portfolio includes 15 operating properties, totaling a leasing area of around 105,000 square meters, held exclusively by SYN.
SYN is part of 7 ventures in shopping malls, directly managing 6 of them, which total around 142,000 square meters of ABL under its operation.
SYN was established as a spin-off from Cyrela on April 11, 2007. Cyrela, in turn, was formed with the merger of the Cyrela Group into Brazil Realty. The former controller of the companies of the Cyrela Group, established in 1962, was dedicated exclusively to the activity of developing residential buildings and office suites in office buildings, and subcontracted the construction and sale of the projects. Brazil Realty was established in 1994 as a joint venture between Cyrela’s controlling shareholder and IRSA, with the purpose of building and leasing high quality office buildings.
As a result of the spin-off, Cyrela transferred its assets that included activities related to the development and acquisition of office buildings and shopping centers, as well as the management services of these properties, to SYN. Each Cyrela shareholder received one share issued by SYN for each share held in Cyrela. The appraisal that was the basis for the transaction was prepared by Terco Grant Thornton. It appraised the spun off amount at R$228.2 million, equivalent to 11.7% of Cyrela’s net worth.
