Hamburg: QUEST Investment Partners sells future HSBA headquarters to Real I.S.

Hamburg, 08 October 2019. Hamburg real estate project development company QUEST Investment Partners has sold the nine-storey commercial property at Willy-Brandt-Str. 75 in Hamburg to a fund of the Real I.S. Group as part of a forward deal. The parties agreed not to disclose the purchase price. The building comprises 7,770 m² of rental space and has been undergoing substantial refurbishment since July 2019. The Hamburg School of Business Administration (HSBA) is the new and sole tenant of the centrally located property.

QUEST Investment Partners acquired the property with its former tenant Hamburg Süd in late 2016. After a nine-month conversion period, the international business school HSBA plans to open the doors of the new building to its approximately 1,000 students in time for the 2020 summer semester.

The property is currently being extended and converted to meet the needs of the university. Construction work is mainly focused on the inside of the building, whereas the façade remains largely unchanged. All floors are being gutted and fitted with new technology. The original construction was built by renowned Kontorhaus architect Georg Radel (1860-1948) at the beginning of the 20th century. At the end of the 1990s, the Hamburger Sparkasse savings bank had the building constructed in its current form, integrating the former Kontorhaus-style office building into the design.

Rödingsmarkt, one of the most important connecting roads between Hamburg city centre and HafenCity, as well as the historic Deichstraße street on the Nikolaifleet canal, with its old timber-framed houses, are in the immediate vicinity.

QUEST Investment Partners received tax advice from Hansa Partner Rommel & Meyer and legal counsel from SNP Schlawien. BNP Paribas Real Estate acted as broker.
