Landmark building CIELO gets new owner
DEMIRE acquires stake in office complex in Frankfurt am Main

Langen, 1 March 2021. CIELO, the prominent office complex at Theodor-Heuss-Allee 100-104 in Frankfurt am Main, will get a new owner in which RFR Group and DEMIRE Deutsche Mittelstand Real Estate AG will hold equal stakes.

DEMIRE has also contractually secured a purchase right for the entire building complex as part of the transaction. The total transaction is valued at over EUR 270 million. The parties expect the transaction to close in the second quarter of this year.

The assset, which was built in 2003 and extensively refurbished from 2018 to 2020, is leased to the Commerzbank AG on a long-term basis. Cielo comprises around 37,000 sqm of total space and offers modern technical equipment as well as contemporary space layouts. The location is within walking distance of the Frankfurt Trade Fair and on one of the main roads of the city.

"With this transaction, we are consistently continuing DEMIRE's realignment. We expect this transaction to generate an average FFO I contribution* of around EUR 5 million per annum in the coming years. In addition, we have the option to fully acquire the building complex from our partner RFR in five years on terms already agreed," comments Ingo Hartlief, Chairman of the Management Board of DEMIRE AG.

Dr. Alexander Koblischek, Managing Director of RFR Management GmbH, adds: "We are pleased to have DEMIRE as a strong partner from the region for this exciting property. After full occupancy and comprehensive refurbishment by RFR, we are now looking forward to the next chapter of Theodor-Heuss-Allee."
