La Française Real Estate Partners International acquires a prime office asset in Berlin

Mediaspree is among the largest development projects in Berlin and runs along the Spree River. Given its prominent location, the area has attracted a number of companies from the fashion, IT, communications and media industries.

The building, named M-Eins, offers ca. 13.300 m2 of lettable office space and a spectacular view from a 400 m2 rooftop terrace. The building was completed in Q2 2017 and a DGNB Gold certification is envisaged. Each floor of the seven-story building could be divided into three lettable areas. The asset is 100% leased, under a long-term lease, to a single tenant, Zalando. Zalando, founded in 2008, is Europe’s leading on-line fashion platform. The property benefits from its ideal location, close to public transportation (Warschauer Strasse and Ostbahnhof train stations). The modern office building was delivered jointly by OVG Real Estate GmbH and LBBW Immobilien.

Jens Goettler, Managing Director for Germany, La Française Real Estate Partners International, said: “M-Eins is a wonderful addition to our portfolio which now counts 19 German assets. The cooperation with all parties involved worked very well and we are looking forward to a long-term collaboration with Zalando.”
