HOCHTIEF Projektentwicklung has now fully let the maxCologne office complex in Cologne-Deutz in time for the foreseen completion date: The 38,500 m² of rental space in the 22 story office block are to be handed over to Lanxess in early 2013.
At the end of 2012 the business law firm GÖRG Partnerschaft von Rechtsanwälten already took up occupancy of floors two to seven in the Rheinetagen building which has an office area of around 10,500 m². The firm has now also secured 2,000 m² on the first floor. Meanwhile, early this year the family-run business g-dogan will open its second restaurant in Cologne, bona'me, on the ground floor, serving freshly prepared Turkish-Oriental cuisine.
Work has been underway since March 2010 on the Deutz Rhine embankment, to create a modern office complex with public spaces using two existing buildings constructed in 1969 and 1978. The two maxCologne buildings meet the criteria for Gold certification from the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) and already hold DGNB Gold precertification. The purchase was overseen by HIH Hamburgische Immobilien Handlung, as an exclusive asset manager in Germany, which is handling ongoing asset management for the owner.
Warburg - Henderson Kapitalanlagegesellschaft für Immobilien acquired maxCologne for its real estate special fund 'RZVK-Immo-Fonds', an individual fund for the Rheinische Versorgungskassen.
