Augsburg, 16 January 2019. PATRIZIA Immobilien AG, the global partner for pan-European real estate investment, can look back on a successful year having expanded its business with public real estate funds through its subsidiary PATRIZIA GrundInvest. In 2018, five new public funds focused on German real estate were launched, the equity for three of which – PATRIZIA GrundInvest Dresden Wohnen, Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Frankfurt Smart Living – has been fully raised while EUR 110 million of equity was deployed.
Overall, PATRIZIA currently manages ten public funds with a total volume of EUR 650 million. The targeted annual payments for nine of the funds exceed forecasts while the tenth fund is performing according to plan. A total of EUR 320 million in equity has been obtained from private and (semi)-professional investors since the establishment of PATRIZIA GrundInvest three years ago.
Andreas Heibrock, Managing Director of PATRIZIA GrundInvest, commented: “Our public funds business has performed extremely well from the outset. Strong demand, rapid placement and good results reinforce our strategy of using PATRIZIA’s network and expertise in the selection, acquisition and management of assets. In 2019, we are specifically planning a new product category that will be primarily pan-European in order to expand our product family and continue our growth.”

The PATRIZIA GrundInvest Frankfurt/Hofheim fund is investing in a local shopping centre in Hofheim, situated between Frankfurt and Wiesbaden. The property was completed in 2010 and is leased to a large number of tenants such as Edeka, Lidl, Müller, H&M, Woolworth and Deichmann. The average remaining lease term is approximately seven years.

It has good transport connections and offers 35,000 sq m of lettable space spread across ten floors and a basement. The different parts of the building, which were modernised in 2015 and 2017 respectively, are fully leased and are used for a hotel, a hostel, retail, offices, a health centre and a parking garage. The weighted remaining lease term is just under ten years. Annual pay-outs of around 4% before taxes are expected based on rental income.
