Jean Lavieille, Co-Head of Fund Management at AEW Europe in Paris said: "The good quality of this asset and the great covenant of the tenant made this an excellent investment choice for the fund."

Kai-Uwe Ludwig, member of the management board responsible for the Investment and Transactions division at the Bayerische Bau und Immobilien Group, added: "In line with our portfolio strategy, we want to increasingly focus on investments in locations in the centers of the cities of Berlin, Frankfurt and Hamburg, in addition to our core market of Munich. We are therefore selling carefully selected assets in other locations."

Gereon Kohlgrueber, Director in Investments at AEW Europe in Düsseldorf concluded: "We feel the Frankfurt regional office market is bottoming out which makes this an interesting time to buy."

So far this year in Germany, AEW Europe has invested around €200 million in core office assets.
