HanseMerkur Grundvermögen acquires 120 apartments from meravis in Hamburg

Hamburg, September 12, 2019. HanseMerkur Grundvermögen AG has acquired a project development of around 11,200 square meters with 120 residential units and 100 underground parking spaces for its open-ended real estate special fund HMG Grundwerte Wohnen PLUS II, which is located within the neighborhood development “Jenfelder Au”.

On the approximately 35-hectare site of the former Lettow-Vorbeck barracks, several building projects will be constructed in multi-storey buildings by 2023, as well as terraced and semi-detached houses with living space for more than 2,000 people.

The rental apartments acquired by HanseMerkur Grundvermögen AG are being built both in classic multi-storey apartment buildings and as duplex apartments and townhouses. Completion is planned for the second quarter of 2020.

Katrin Ewald, Deputy Head of Investment at HanseMerkur Grundvermögen AG: “We are very pleased that we were able to invest again in Hamburg. The area is only about twelve kilometers from the city of Hamburg and is characterized by a good public transport and MIV connection. Due to the heterogeneous apartment type and size mix, we can respond to the widest possible range of rental requirements. ”

Matthias Herter, CEO of the meravis real estate group: “We are more than happy and happy about the very good cooperation with all involved in this extraordinary construction project. With JENYARD, we are creating high-quality and affordable living space with forward-looking sustainability aspects, such as the new wastewater system from Hamburg Water Cycle. With HanseMerkur Grundvermögen AG, we have found a Hamburg-based, highly reliable and professional partner. ”
