Langen, 02 Dezember 2019. DEMIRE Deutsche Mittelstand Real Estate AG (ISN: DE000AOXFSFO) reports new lettings of 30,000 m² in LogistikPark Leipzig. The anchor tenant, a renowned RE-Commerce company, which has been a tenant at LogistikPark Leipzig since 2016, has expanded the existing rented space by 11,000 m² to 70,000 m² and has rented it on a long-term basis. In addition, 19,400 m² were leased to DB Schenker and MOBIS, two renowned companies in the logistics sector.

The vacancy rate at the LogistikPark Leipzig has dropped to 10 %, while the WALT has risen to 3.7 years. When DEMIRE acquired the property in 2015, the vacancy rate was still around 40 % and the WALT stood at 1.9 years. Hence, the repositioning of the asset has been successful.

With annual rental income of EUR 4.5 million, the LogistikPark Leipzig contributes about 5.3 % to DEMIRE's total annualised rental income of EUR 86.0 million. The LogistikPark offers attractive space for a balanced mix of industries such as event technology, e-commerce, and logistics service providers, among others.

With more than 140.000 m² let, DEMIRE has already now exceeded prior years letting performance significantly. The WALT of the portfolio has stabilised at 4.7 years, from 4.5 years at the beginning of the year.
