SEB Asset Management has started the new year by signing two rental agreements on Potsdamer Platz, Berlin. Daimler Real Estate GmbH will use its space at Linkstrasse 2 for another five years.
The company currently has 1,700 m² of office space there. In addition, office and real estate service provider WS Capital GmbH will move into about 550 m² in the building at Potsdamer Platz 1 as of 01 April 2015.
Peter Werner, CEO of WS Capital GmbH: “We deliberately wanted to rent in the heart of Berlin, so we decided on this central location. With its unique amenities and well-known tenants, Potsdamer Platz 1 is the ideal location for us.”
The two new signings come on the heels of the many successes logged by SEB Asset Management last year. Among other transactions, ICBC, China’s largest bank, moved into 670 m² at Potsdamer Platz 1 for a term of 15 years. At the same time, the international law firm Freshfields prematurely renewed its rental agreement covering 5,800 m² in the same building for ten years. The office tower at Potsdamer Platz 1, which was designed by architect Hans Kollhoff, forms the Premium Towers of Berlin, together with the Atrium Tower and Forum Tower. Alongside state-of-the-art amenities, the property offers spectacular views of the German capital.
Other world-renowned law firms such as Morrison and Foerster LLP and Olswang as well as the firm of Raue LLP also have offices at Potsdamer Platz 1.
