GPT Halverton has purchased an office complex in Berlin for the H2O fund. The property is located at Salzufer in the Charlottenburg quarter and has a rentable area of over 19,100 m². Around three quarters of this is office space. The remaining area is made up of storage and exhibition space, a restaurant and a fitness center.
The property consists of three interconnecting buildings which form a rectangular complex with a central courtyard. The buildings are currently let to ten tenants. The main tenant is Deutsche Bahn together with its subsidiaries. The vendor of the property is HIPPON Verwaltungsgesellschaft mbH & Co., a joint venture of IVG Development GmbH and Provinzial Versicherung.
The complex is located in a prominent position on Salzufer, directly adjacent to the Landwehr Canal. Public transport can be reached on foot, with the Tiergarten suburban railway station and the Ernst-Reuter-Platz underground station only a few minutes away. From these, connections are available to the Lehrter train station, around 4.5 km distant. The A100 motorway is only 3 km away. Tegel Airport can be reached in around 15 minutes.
