QUEST Investment Partners und Competo erwerben Bürokomplex in Frank­furter City von Peakside Capital

Hamburg/Munich, 30 September 2019. The real estate project developer QUEST Investment Partners and the Munich-based investment specialist Competo Capital Partners have formed a 50:50 joint venture, acquiring an office complex at Baseler Straße 46-48 / Gutleut­straße 80-82 in Frankfurt am Main from Peakside Capital. The three buildings from 1957 and 1994 offer a combined rental space of almost 13,000 m². The plot measures some 4,700 m² and includes 129 car parking spaces.

Baseler Straße 46–48, one of the last devel­opment sites in Frankfurt’s Bahnhofsviertel (area around the central station), is situated between the trade fair grounds, the central station and the city centre. Thanks to its central location, the building ensemble offers outstanding local transport connec­tions. A large variety of shops and restau­rants can also be found within walking distance.

“Our joint venture is ready to signif­i­cantly upgrade Frankfurt’s Bahnhofsviertel through attractive design measures and the corre­sponding investment. We welcome the cooper­ation with Competo and are delighted to have a reliable partner at our side for this exciting project,” explains Theja Geyer, Managing Partner at QUEST Investment Partners.

“The potential of this property in Frankfurt’s dynamic Bahnhofsviertel convinced us right from the start,” says Boris Schran, Managing Partner and co-founder of Peakside Capital. The company only acquired the office complex in 2018. “We have now taken advantage of the strong market phase to sell it.”

Colliers Frankfurt acted in an advisory capacity for the seller during the trans­action. QUEST Investment Partners and Competo Capital Partners received legal counsel from SNP Schlawien and GSK Stockmann, both from Munich. Tax advice was provided by Hansa Partner Rommel & Meyer from Hamburg. Peakside was advised by Baker McKenzie on legal matters and by Hauck-Schuchardt on tax matters.
