HAMBORNER REIT AG - NuOffice is recognised as the most sustainable investor property

- Office property in Munich receives LEED platinum sustainability certificate and top marks

- Highest score in the world in the LEED system variant for investor projects (Core & Shell)

Duisburg, 2 July 2013 - Hamborner REIT AG is the proud winner of a special award for the office property in Munich added to its books in January: the 'NuOffice' constructed in the past two years in Munich's Parkstadt Schwabing district by Hubert Haupt Immobilien Holding received the LEED platinum certificate with top marks yesterday.

Run by the US Green Building Council (USGBC), the LEED ('Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design') sustainability label is leading scheme of its kind in the world. It defines standards for environmentally friendly, energy-efficient and resource-efficient buildings. There are four quality levels for the award for highly sustainable properties: 'certified', 'silver', 'gold' and 'platinum'.

With 94 points, as well as exceeding the minimum score of 80 required for platinum status, the NuOffice also achieved the world's highest ever score in the LEED system variant for investor projects (Core & Shell).

The members of Hamborner's Managing Board, Dr Rüdiger Mrotzek and Hans Richard Schmitz, are delighted with the award for their new flagship project: 'We are proud to be able to send a signal with this property, and the certification results even exceeded our original expectations. Sustainability is an increasingly prominent aspect in the office property sector in particular, as our discerning tenants also insist on compliance with the relevant standards. Therefore, for us as portfolio holders, it is important that our properties strike the right balance between ecology and economy. We believe that the NuOffice achieves this perfectly'.


HAMBORNER REIT AG is a stock exchange-listed public limited company that today exclusively operates in the property sector and is positioned as a portfolio holder for high-yielding commercial properties. The company has sustainable rental incomes, with a nationally-dispersed substantial property portfolio as its foundation. Attractive retail trade spaces in key town centre sites of German cities and intermediate centres form the focal point of the portfolio. In addition, the property portfolio includes highly-frequented specialist stores and profitable office buildings, as well as spaces for medical practices.

Furthermore, the company still has approximately 0.9 million m² of undeveloped land areas, which are located predominantly in Duisburg North and in the adjacent municipalities of Dinslaken and Hünxe.

HAMBORNER REIT AG stands out due to its many years of experience in the property and capital market, its lean and transparent corporate structure as well as its special proximity to the tenants. Since February 18, 2010 HAMBORNER has been a registered Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) and benefits at company level from exemption from corporation and trade tax.
