aik, the German investment house, has acquired the office building “Science 14” , located Rue de la Science 14 in Brussels, on behalf of one of its real estate funds launched for a German occupation pension fund. The vendor was CBRE Global Investors, acting on behalf of one of its funds.
The three interconnected buildings comprise a total letting surface of 12,000 m². They are nearly 100% occupied and are let to 15 different tenants. The building ensemble is located in the European District in Brussels between the prestigious “Square Frère Orban” and the well-known “Rue Belliard”.
The building "Belliard" and "Atrium" were constructed in the 1950s and 1960s, whereas the prestigious "Mansion"- house, situated right next to the "Place Frère Orban", dates from the 19th century. The entire ensemble was refurbished in 2008/2010. Due to the different years of construction a remarkable contrast of historic architecture and modern façade elements was created. With its sophisticated elegance, the ensemble is a real eye-catcher in Brussels’ CBD.
