IMMOFINANZ has concluded a major rental contract for its FLOAT office project in the Düsseldorf Medienhafen: the energy provider Uniper AG, a wholly owned subsidiary of E.ON SE, has leased the building’s entire 28,000 sqm of office space. This office complex, which was designed by star architect Renzo Piano, is expected to be completed by mid-2018.
“Within only a few months Uniper and trivago, two well-known companies, have chosen IMMOFINANZ properties in Düsseldorf as their future corporate headquarters. That confirms the high-quality positioning of our office portfolio. These long-term rental contracts cover approx. 54,000 sqm and also represent two of the largest single office leases in our company’s history. Both of these buildings are now fully let“, commented Oliver Schumy, CEO of IMMOFINANZ.
FLOAT is an ensemble comprising six sections: the individual buildings have polygonal floor plans and are linked by a passerelle, a connecting structure on the south side. The name FLOAT reflects Renzo Piano’s architectural concept, which envisages ice floes for the individual buildings and their interaction.
In addition to FLOAT, IMMOFINANZ is realising another major project in the Düsseldorf Medienhafen: the new headquarters for trivago, the world’s largest hotel search, with approx. 26,000 sqm of office space in the first building section. The CARLSQUARTIER, a modern office and business house with 3,800 sqm, is also currently under construction in the Central Business District. These projects will expand IMMOFINANZ’s office portfolio in Düsseldorf to approx. 70,000 sqm by mid-2018.
