Frankfurt, 19 February 2019 – Godewind Immobilien AG (ISIN: DE000A2G8XX3, trading symbol: GWD, Godewind), a company specializing in German office real estate, has signed its first new EUR 82 million loan agreement for three assets of its office real estate portfolio. The loan has a total term of five years and serves to refinance the properties ComConCenter in Frankfurt, Airport Business-Center in Dusseldorf and Pentahof in Hamburg, which were acquired at a gross purchase price of EUR 142.4 million. The financing was underwritten by DZ HYP AG. With the acquisition of the Frankfurt Airport Center, which was already acquired in November 2018 at a gross purchase price of EUR 168.3 million, an existing financing of EUR 88 million with an interest rate of 1.87 percent was taken over.
Favorable financing costs of around 1.09 percent
Market environment on the capital market opens up additional potential for further attractive financing transactions
With the exception of the Quartier am Zeughaus and the Herzog-Terrassen, which are expected to be closed by the end of March, all transactions have already been closed. The ComConCenter in Frankfurt was already closed on 31 October last year, Airport Business Center in Dusseldorf on 30 November 2018, Sunsquare near Munich on 15 December 2018 and Frankfurt Airport Center on 28 December 2018.
