QUEST Investment Partners acquires two properties in downtown Hamburg

Hamburg, 08 September 2016. QUEST Investment Partners, a recently founded project devel­opment company based in Hamburg, has acquired two office properties in the heart of Hamburg with a total rental space of around 15,000 square metres.

One of the properties is the former IBM high-rise with 17 storeys on Willy-Brandt-Straße 23. Designed by Werner Kallmorgen in 1960, this listed building is to be modernised, reposi­tioned and rented out. The alter­ation works will take around one and a half years and are scheduled to start in spring 2017. The building features around 7,500 m² of rental space.
“This building is a modern classic. Like hardly any other building in Hamburg, its archi­tecture reflects the spirit of post-war modernism inspired by the American metrop­o­lises. The black glass façade with its striking punch card pattern will soon be modernised – it is a true archi­tec­tural icon from the 1960s with partic­u­larly unique qualities,” says Theja Geyer, Managing Partner at QUEST Investment Partners.

In addition, QUEST Investment Partners acquired a fully let office and commercial building on Willy-Brandt-Straße 75 from a joint venture between Castlelake and the Becken Group. At the beginning of the 20th century, the renowned Kontorhaus architect Georg Radel designed the original Kontorhaus on Rödings­markt, parts of which still exist today. In 1998, it was elabo­rately encased in an eight-storey office building for a Hamburg bank. The property features approx­i­mately 7,690 m² of rental space. Due to the high quality of this property and its efficient building structure, the ensemble is to be revitalised and converted into a modern office building after the tenant moves out. Its most salient charac­ter­istics are its timeless archi­tecture and its excellent location on Rödingsmarkt.
