In what is the second such partnership between them, Allianz Real Estate and real estate project development and investment company QUEST Investment Partners have acquired the building on behalf of several Allianz insurance companies. In July last year the two came together to purchase Überseehaus, an 11,300 sqm office and commercial building in Hamburg.
Focus Teleport, located in Berlin’s Alt-Moabit office hub next to the river Spree, covers nearly 30,000 sqm in space. The complex comprises nine partially interconnected buildings with tenants including leading technology and media firms as well as public sector entities.
The Berlin office market has continued to expand in line with the city’s central role in the German and European economy. Berlin was ranked 4th in Allianz Real Estate’s inaugural Cities That Work office sector investment report in 2018 in terms of core strategies and 9th for value-add investments.
"We are delighted to be expanding our exposure to the attractive and dynamic Berlin office sector through this manage to core opportunity,” said Annette Kroeger, CEO of Allianz Real Estate for North & Central Europe. “We believe the market represents excellent, long-term value on a selected basis, with Focus Teleport an example of an in-demand asset with strong growth prospects.”
"Focus Teleport represents a truly exciting opportunity to add significant value through strategic redevelopment, with substantial upside potential. We are delighted to be working with Allianz Real Estate again and look forward to further expanding our joint partnership-oriented investment strategy," added Jan Rouven Künzel, Managing Partner of QUEST Investment Partners.
Allianz Real Estate and QUEST Investment Partners were advised by Jebens Mensching PartG mbB, Propertunities and Hansa Partner Rommel & Meyer, while Cushman & Wakefield acted as broker.
