1 April 2022 – Goldman Sachs Asset Management and DW Real Estate today announced that they have jointly acquired Neumarkter Strasse, a multi-tenant office property of approximately 17,200 m² in the sought-after Munich Eastside submarket.
Situated at Neumarkter Strasse 59-63, the property is located in a dynamic submarket with a wide range of amenities and easy access to infrastructure. The proximity to the hubs Middle Ring Road and the S-Bahn stations Leuchtenbergring and Berg am Laim ensures excellent connectivity within and beyond Munich. The asset is currently 92% occupied and has a well-diversified tenant mix with anchor office tenants from industries such as insurance, nursing, travel and IT.
Goldman Sachs Asset Management and DW Real Estate intend to significantly uplift the building through hands-on asset management, including the enhancement of common- and tenant areas. The purchasers further plan to realize numerous ESG initiatives, such as the implementation of EV chargers and solar panels, the improvement of the landscaping as well as the reduction of CO2 emissions, with a focus on improving the operational performance of the office property and the well-being of the occupants.
Dominik Schaefer, Managing Director at Goldman Sachs Asset Management, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with DW Real Estate on another acquisition of a high-quality office building in Germany. We see significant day-1 value-add potential given the strong fundamentals of the submarket and material headroom for ESG initiatives. This investment is the fourth addition to our strategy of acquiring high-quality office assets with significant value-add potential in German A and B Cities in strong-performing submarkets / central locations.“
Goldman Sachs Asset Management and DW Real Estate were advised by Jones Day (Legal and Financing), POELLATH (Tax and Structuring), CBRE (Technical), Progea (Environmental) and Colliers (Commercial).
NATIXIS Pfandbriefbank financed the acquisition and capex measures and was assisted by DLA Piper (Legal).
