The asset offers both flexible office and storage facilities and includes a cafeteria that opens directly on to the river. A 120 car parking lot, recently built by Groß & Partner, is located within a short walk.

Jens Göttler, Managing Director-Germany, LFF Real Estate Partners, said that “We are delighted to be able to acquire such a Core asset, offering secure income leased to a strong tenant on a long term lease. We have a pipeline of further deals and will be looking to deploy over €160m of equity during the course of the next 12 months.”

Jens Hausmann, Groß & Partner, said that “We are convinced, that with the French investor LFF Real Estate Partners and its local team we found an excellent long-term-partner for our tenant Saint-Gobain, one of the leading French groups.”
