Altogether, new leases bring the successful development’s occupancy to over 95 percent.

“Today’s announcement illustrates a continuation of leasing momentum that has been building at Tishman Speyer office properties around the world. During the past 12 months, we’ve signed many large long-term lease transactions throughout our portfolio, not just in the German markets – but also in cities such as New York, Chicago, Washington, DC, Atlanta, Paris, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Hyderabad. We are pleased that our strategy of targeting world-class corporations for the well-located high-quality properties we’ve acquired and developed has been so successful. The agreement with Serviceplan, one of Germany’s finest marketing firms, further illustrates that success,” commented Tishman Speyer Co-CEOs Jerry Speyer and Rob Speyer.

Located in the centre of Munich and comprised of three connected buildings, Brienner Strasse includes first-class office space, residential units, an underground parking garage and surface parking in the building’s courtyard. The buildings were constructed at various times starting in 1930 and all were fully refurbished and modernized during the past decade. The property is easily accessible by private and public transportation, with Munich’s main train station and several subway stations close at hand.

Tishman Speyer’s Opern Turm development was completed in 2009 and has been a dramatic addition to the Frankfurt skyline. The project includes a 42-story tower, a seven-story podium building and an underground garage. Situated on Opernplatz, opposite the famous Alte Oper, OpernTurm is regarded as the premier office address in Frankfurt. The property features magnificent views of the city skyline and offers outstanding on-site amenities.
