Barings Real Estate Advisers, acting on behalf of an Anglo-Saxon investor has sold an office and retail building in Berlin-Kreuzberg to Real IS.
The property, a six-storey building dating from 1931, stands on a 2,700 sq m site at the corner of Charlottenstrasse and Rudi-Dutschke Strasse, on the boundary of the Kreuzberg and Mitte districts. Situated in the historic media quarter between Potsdamer Platz and Gendarmenmarkt, the building was refurbished and the Rudi-Dutschke-Strasse section extended in 2000/2001. The property provides around 8,700 sq m of offices, 1,100 sq m of retail accommodation and almost 1,500 sq m of storage with 5 parking spaces.
The property is 95% let with Barings Real Estate Advisers having re-let the space formerly occupied by MDK-Medizinischer Dienst der Krankenkasse. The new anchor tenant is the Jülich GmbH research centre. Other occupiers of the property include a newspaper publisher and a property services provider.
JLL Berlin brokered the transaction. The vendor's legal adviser was GT Greenberg Traurig, while GÖRG Partnerschaft von RAen MBB acted for the purchaser.
