Eschborn, November 21, 2019 – Noratis AG (ISIN: DE000A2E4MK4, WKN: A2E4MK, “Noratis”), aleading portfolio developer of residential properties in Germany, continues to successfully expand its portfolio and acquires 149 residential units in Magdeburg.
The total residential area of the property built in 1968 amounts to about 8,900 m². The current occupancy rate of the property is about 91 percent. Apart from the refurbishment of the vacant apartments, the optical and technical upgrading of the entire property is planned. Against the back-drop of the planned asset management activities, Noratis assumes that full occupancy can be reached within the near future.
The property is located in the popular district of Stadtfeld-Ost. The main station and the old town can be reached by public transportation in about 10 minutes.
The transaction was brokered by Engel & Völkers Investment Consulting GmbH.
Flaminia zu Salm-Salm, Head of Transaction Management at Noratis AG: “The property is a perfect match for our portfolio. It has a good building fabric with a clear development potential. Moreover, Magdeburg is an interesting real property location, where we would be pleased to further extend our presence.”
Robert Reiter, Member of Executive Management at Engel & Völkers Investment Consulting: “We would like to thank Noratis for the professional and highly efficient execution of the transaction. The short decision-making paths and the rapid implementation have convinced us.”
