This transaction, in a really difficult market, emphasizes the attractiveness of the Dornbusch asset which is part of a portfolio that was built up by Ofi Invest Real Estate, on behalf of its clients, very selectively and always with a strong focus on the location and the quality,” emphasized Charles-Henri de la Chapelle, Head of Asset Management at Ofi Invest Real Estate SAS.


A pre-assessment for certification in accordance with the DGNB Gold Standard was carried out for the property in July 2023. Based on this, a concrete action plan was developed with which the property can be brought up to the DGNB Green Building Standard "DGNB Gold" through targeted investments.
