  • Rental agreement term of seven years with option to renew for further five years
  • Letting success is evidence of expertise by Peach Deutschland and Deutsche Immobilien in the letting of large areas
  • Overall project with unique character features exceptional architecture and prestigious location

Zurich, 18 October 2012 – Peach Property Group AG, a leading developer of top-quality residential property in the German-speaking region of Europe, has achieved an important rental success in Germany by securing a globally leading consulting company as its new anchor tenant for the “Am Zirkus 1” building in Berlin. The consulting company is renting a total of 2.586 m2 of commercial space in the emerging prestige property, distributed across floors four to nine. The rental agreement has been concluded for a term of seven years, with an option by the tenant to extend the tenancy for a further five years.

Unique building in a prestigious location

“Am Zirkus 1” forms part of the twin “yoo berlin/Am Zirkus 1” project, which Peach Property Group AG is realising in Berlin-Mitte at a historical location near the Berliner Ensemble on the banks of the Spree. Marking yet another milestone for this project, this rental agreement follows a 20-year lease agreement for the hotel area. As a result, “Am Zirkus 1” is now almost fully let. Deutsche Immobilien AG holds a minority stake in “Am Zirkus 1”.

In the adjoining section of the building, Peach Property Group AG, under the name “yoo berlin”, is realising 95 top-quality residential apartments designed by star designer Philippe Starck. More than 75% of the apartments have already been either notarised or reserved. “yoo berlin/Am Zirkus 1” is scheduled for completion in the first half of 2013.

Bernd Hasse, Managing Director of Peach Property Group (Deutschland): “Our success in securing a first-class anchor tenant for our “Am Zirkus 1″ development speaks volumes for the strategic market approach we adopt when it comes to letting large areas. The reputation of a world-leading strategy consultancy and the unique character of our new building in the prestigious location create a perfect fit.”
