Frankfurt am Main, 1. Juli 2019

“The result was driven by numerous large-scale deals which were expected at the end of the first quarter and have now been completed. This is also noticeably reflected in the distribution of size categories,” explains Wende. As such, the “> 10,000 sqm” cluster not only represents 27.3 % of the total volume, but has also tripled to 71,700 sqm compared to the middle of the previous year. By contrast, the other four size categories suffered losses.

The largest deal by far during the first six months was DekaBank Deutsche Girozentrale’s rental of 46,200 sqm in a project at Lyoner Straße 13. The next largest transaction was Randstad’s leasing of 14,800 sqm in Frankfurter Straße 100, Eschborn, which was also within the scope of a development.

VietinBank moves to larger premises – NAI apollo advises

Frankfurt am Main, 17 June 2019 – One of Vietnam’s largest banks, VietinBank, has moved to new premises in the Westend-Carree at Grüneburgweg 14-18 in Frankfurt am Main. The bank has thus increased the space its Frankfurt branch occupies to almost 1,360 sqm. The previous location was owned by the VietinBank and was brokered to a private investor in collaboration with NAI apollo.

“Multi-tier consulting like we provided for VietinBank in Frankfurt is at least as exciting as it is challenging. The lease and sale must be coordinated exactly to schedule to not disrupt the client's ongoing operations,” says Andreas Wende, Managing Partner of NAI apollo. “Satisfying the space requirements in a highly competitive market for office space ‘just in time’ is a tremendous achievement by our team.”

Workplace Ordinance no longer fit for purpose

Berlin, 9 May, 2019 – In light of the progressing transformation of working environments and the new demands placed on workplaces and office spaces, the German Workplace Ordinance (ArbStättV) is no longer up to date with reality. This is the conclusion drawn by the new digital publication “Zeitgerechte Arbeitsstättenverordnung? Über Wohlbefinden, Produktivität und Change Management auf der Fläche” (“Is the Workplace Ordinance up to date? On well-being, productivity and change management in the space”) published by the German Property Federation (ZIA), the umbrella organisation for the real estate industry. Fixed dimensions for offices, movement areas and a lack of flexibility regarding the use of space are no longer in line with the times.

NAI apollo: Transaction market for residential portfolios makes positive start to 2019 despite a decline in volume

Frankfurt am Main, 15 April 2019 – The transaction market for residential portfolios in Germany has successfully maintained the strong momentum that was evident in previous years, according to the latest analysis by owner-managed real estate consultancy NAI apollo – partner of the NAI apollo group. Although the first quarter of the year saw a significant reduction in the volume to about €3.9 billion compared to €6.9 billion in the corresponding quarter of 2018, it should be noted that the previous year’s figure was boosted by one large deal, namely the acquisition of BUWOG by Vonovia. “If this transaction is excluded from the overall volume, the difference is significantly mitigated. Last year’s volume would have amounted to about €4 billion, which almost exactly corresponds to the current result,” said Andreas Wende, Managing Director of NAI apollo.
