CBRE Global Investors Acquires the Pontishaus Office Building in Munich

MUNICH 23 September 2020 – CBRE Global Investors, on behalf of one of its pan-European funds, has acquired an office building in central Munich.

The property, located in close proximity to Munich’s CBD and main railway and central bus stations, offers around 18,000 sqm of GLA and is fully let to a diversified tenant base.

This prime asset is arranged over basement, lower ground, five upper floors and a penthouse floor. There is a courtyard and underground parking with 159 parking spaces.

“The strong demand for office space in Munich combined with vacancy rates below 1% in the city centre and the limited future supply makes this a rare investment opportunity. With strong upside potential combined with refurbishment and asset management initiatives, the property is well positioned to deliver on the investment requirements of the fund’s investors” commented Sebastian Ehrhardt, Head of Transactions, Germany at CBRE Global Investors.   

“Despite the current working from home phenomenon, we are firm believers in the future of offices that are located in winning cities, core locations, close to transport hubs and offer occupiers flexible, tech enabled space. This asset meets the investment criteria we require, and it is an excellent addition to the fund’s portfolio,” added John Mulqueen, Head of Offices EMEA, CBRE Global Investors.

CBRE Global Investors is a leading investor in offices, with a total AUM of €8.3 billion* in EMEA This comprises a total of 990,000 sq m across 13 countries, including the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Poland, Italy and France.
