Despite the difficult situation on the property markets, a slight improvement on employment markets has led to numerous rental contracts for IVG. Eight of the larger contracts are listed below.
5,800 m² in Paris
Here, ALMA rented 5,800 m² in Front Office 92. The newly concluded rental contract runs until the end of July 2019. BNP Paribas Real Estate was the advisor. Front Office 92 consists of three wings with a total of 23,470 m² office space on 9 storeys with an underground garage, between the Seine and the city in a newly created district in Asnières. It is an environmentally friendly building (HQE - High Quality for Environment - standard certified) with good local public transport links and 20 minutes by car from Charles de Gaulle airport.
8,770 m² in London
At this location IVG, assisted by Montagu Evans, restructured an existing rental contract covering approximately 8,770 m² at EuroSelect 8 in Victoria between the Houses of Parliament and Westminster (1 Neathouse Place) for its closed-end property fund. The contract aroused considerable interest in professional circles in London, as the tenant a multinational commodities company waived a termination clause. The risk of vacancy was thus avoided and income was ensured for the remaining rental period of approximately 8 years. The building has won numerous architectural and design prizes and is fully let, with 2,000 m2 leased by retail companies.
