DIC Asset AG: "Rosenthaler Höfe" Office Building in Berlin-Mitte Sold to RFR Holding
Frankfurt am Main, 24/09/2018. DIC Asset AG, one of Germany's leading listed property companies, successfully sold the "Rosenthaler Höfe" office property in Berlin's Mitte district. Compared to other recent transactions in Berlin, it was a deal of benchmark character. The Rosenthaler Höfe asset was part of the start-up portfolio of the DIC Office Balance I institutional real estate fund that was launched in 2010 and consistently outperformed its target return every year. The buyer is the RFR Holding GmbH. While the parties agreed not to disclose the exact selling price, the transaction volume is well within the triple-digit millions.
The prestigious fully glazed office building with more than 13,000 sqm of lettable area is let in its entirety to SAP, the global market leader for enterprise software. Since its completion in 2003, the group has pooled its Berlin-based development, sales, consultancy and training activities in the building. Located in direct proximity of Hackescher Markt, the Rosenthaler Höfe complex occupies one the most attractive locations anywhere in Berlin. The property is still let to SAP for several years.
"By selling this landmark asset even in this very dynamic market situation in Berlin, we achieved an outstanding result for our long-term fund investors. It is yet another example of the superior know-how and professional working methods of our in-house investment team," said Sonja Wärntges, CEO of DIC Asset AG.
DIC Asset AG was counselled exclusively by real estate service provider CBRE and the law firm bhp Bögner Hensel & Partner.
