Noerr advised the consortium on the deal.
A mixed consortium of banks and an insurance company led by Deutsche Hypothekenbank (Actien-Gesellschaft) announced the financing of four construction phases of the Heidestrasse urban quarter. The total amount being financed is over €296m.
This project development is the first to be financed with the involvement of an insurance company. In addition to Deutsche Hypothekenbank (Actien-Gesellschaft), DZ HYP AG and Volksbank e.G. – Die Gestalterbank Offenburg/Villingen, the consortium also includes health insurer DKV Deutsche Krankenversicherung AG (Ergo).
The development of the Heidestrasse urban quarter, which is being managed by Taurecon, Drees & Sommer and Aggregate, is currently one the largest construction sites in Germany. A new urban quarter is being created in the heart of Berlin, consisting of a total of seven construction phases. The urban quarter combines residential and office buildings, commercial space, public streets, squares and green spaces with cafés, restaurants, a hotel, a daycare centre and a local shopping centre.
The four financed construction phases (“Spring”, “Colonnades”, “Straight” and “Crown II”) together comprise 72,383 m² of residential, office and commercial space and are scheduled for completion in 2023.
Taurecon Real Estate Consulting GmbH designed the Quartier Heidestrasse for the owner and coordinated the entire project development process.
