Realogis advises leading German event company for long-term lease in Hamburg
One of Germany’s leading companies for event services as well as conference and event technology is expanding its storage capacity and optimising the efficiency of its storage structures. In a deal advised and brokered by Realogis – Germany’s leading property consulting company for industrial and logistics properties and business parks – Gahrens+Battermann GmbH & Co. KG has signed a long-term lease for a new-build facility directly at the South Hamburg motorway intersection.
“The property on Georgswerder Bogen was built in 2018 and provides Gahrens+Battermann with a modern, first-class fit-out, including underfloor heating and a photovoltaic system plus the possibility of customisable interior fittings,” comments Rasmus Werner, Consultant at Realogis Immobilien Hamburg GmbH. The unit comprises approx. 1,200 sqm of warehouse space, approx. 320 sqm of office space and approx. 120 sqm of ramp space and 18 outdoor parking spaces for cars and lorries.
“By moving our branch to Hamburg-Georgswerder, we are increasing our efficiency,” says Christian Kostiuk, Managing Director at Gahrens+Battermann. “As a result of the immediate access to the B75 federal road, we are creating direct connection possibilities
to the A1 motorway and thus to our other northern German locations in Bremen and Hanover as well as Berlin.” This was preceded by the takeover of Hamburg Showtechnik HST GmbH, one of Hamburg’s largest providers of event technology, around one and a half years ago. Gahrens+Battermann, which is headquartered in Bergisch-Gladbach, was founded in 1983 and now operates 11 additional locations throughout Germany with a total of 350 employees.
With this new letting through Realogis, the property, which comprises over approx. 3,500 sqm in total, is fully let. The lessor and owner is Greengrocer GmbH, which built the property for its own use and has now made half of the warehouse available for letting.
