Frankfurt am Main, 19 July 2019. DIC Asset AG (ISIN: DE000A1X3XX4), one of Germany's leading listed property companies, completed the acquisition of the "Stadtfenster" property in Duisburg. The transfer of possession, rights and obligations took place end of June. The total investment costs (TIC) for the office property amounted to EUR 58.1 million.

Raised in 2014, the modern property provides a lettable area of 12,600 square metres across five floors, plus 17 parking spots. It is centrally located in Duisburg's inner city, and a large share of the premises (11,400 square metres) is occupied by the local branch of the municipal library and an adult education centre.

EUR 2.2 million.

Stadtfenster Duisburg

The name "Stadtfenster" translates into "city window" and is inspired by the prestigious façade with its large window surrounds that span several floors. The two building sections are linked by a free-floating glass bridge. This further enhances the property's bright and transparent character.

"We are pleased to report that 'Stadtfenster' was added to our portfolio in late June, which will have a positive impact on our portfolio metrics. As the year progresses, we intend to keep acquiring properties for our proprietary portfolio – and talks to this effect are already in an advanced stage," commented Sonja Wärntges, CEO of DIC Asset AG.
