Searching for more investments in Vienna
The Viennese real estate market draws the attention of the German real estate investment company by having a relatively low vacancy rate of 6.4 % in office properties when compared to other European countries. "The positive economic environment of the city combined with the micro-location at an important transportation junction speak for our new investment", comments Dr. Stephan Hinsche, spokesman of the aik management board. According to the 2013 investment strategy, aik is searching for further acquisition opportunities in Vienna.
