The property in Siegen is a six-floor commercial building in Bahnhofstrasse, an attractive pedestrianised area with a varied range of retail opportunities. Built in 1968 and modernised on an ongoing basis, the property has a rental area of around 7,100 m². The tenant is the clothing retailer C&A. Rental income amounts to around EUR931,000 p.a., the purchase price is EUR13 million and the gross initial yield is around 7.2%.
The transfer of the two properties is expected before the end of November 2014.
