Prelios has announced that Karstadt property owner Highstreet has closed a sales agreement with a joint venture formed by Centrum (German real estate company) and Signa (Austrian real estate company) for two properties: the famous Munich Oberpollinger department store and the adjacent Karstadt-sportstore. Both properties are 100% let to Karstadt Warenhaus GmbH, the largest German department store chain.
The operation has had a positive impact in term of revenues on the Prelios Management Platform equal to around 1 million mainly reflecting fees for the sale of the assets.
Both Oberpollinger assets are located in the central area of Munich in Bavaria in one of the most attractive shopping high streets of Germany, the Neuhauser/Kaufinger Strasse. The two assets total around 40,000 m² of gross floor area.
Prelios, which keeps a 12.1% share in Highstreet, is the co-asset manager of the entire Highstreet real estate portfolio in Germany.
Highstreet is the owner of properties rented to Karstadt, the prestigious chain of German department stores. Highstreet shares are 49% owned by a Consortium made up of RREEF - Gruppo Deutsche Bank (48%), Prelios (24.66%), Generali (22.34%) and the Gruppo Borletti (4%) and 51% of the ownership belongs to Whitehall funds (managed by Goldman Sachs Group).
