Hamburg: premium property Ballinhof almost fully let. QUEST Investment Partners refurbishes exclusive Kontorhaus office building
Hamburg, 20 August 2020 Hamburg hardly has a more prestigious property to offer: the Ballinhof building at Ballindamm 17 is one of the most exclusive addresses on the banks of the Binnenalster. The project developers at QUEST Investment Partners are refurbishing the listed Kontorhaus office building and have almost fully rented out the approximately 11,300 m² of office space. Alongside international management and strategy consultants, software experts, a family office and a company operating in the shipping industry will be enjoying the view of the water. The 6th floor, which measures 1,450 m² and features a 350 m² roof terrace for private use, is still available. Since 2019, the seven-storey building has been undergoing comprehensive refurbishment and modernisation with the help of HS Architekten. The first tenants will move into the property in early 2021.
The ground floor of this historic building offers a further 2,000 m2 of space for retail and restaurants. Outdoor areas with views of Lake Alster are located on the newly developed Ballindamm Boulevard and in the courtyard with its venerable charm. An exquisite café has already signed a rental agreement.
A prestigious gem in the finest location
The refurbishment plans are designed to preserve the historical features of this top property and combine them with the highest standards of modern and innovative office concepts. All floors will receive new layouts as well as new and modern building services; some floors will also feature attractive terraces with views of the Binnenalster or the rooftops of Hamburg. The elegant main entrance will be returned to its historical location of 1921. The courtyard will be upgraded and given a new look and feel.
The world famous Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten is located opposite Ballinhof, the luxury department store Alsterhaus on Jungfernstieg is only a few metres away, as are the Europa Passage designed by Hadi Teherani and the busy shopping street Mönckebergstraße.
The prestigious building in traditional Kontorhaus style dates back to plans by the renowned architects Lundt & Kallmorgen. They designed the office building in 1901/02 for the trading and shipping company A.C. de Freitas & Co.
