space2move sold to Union invest
The ”space2move“ building complex, developed by RPHI, was sold on 30 June 2015 to Union Investment.
“We are glad that we were able to sell this very attractive property at a correspondingly attractive price”, says Dr. Karl-Maria Pfeffer, Managing Director of Raiffeisen Property International. ”With its existing tenant mix and long-term rental contracts with its main user, Raiffeisen, we are convinced that we have sold to Union Investment a modern and sustainable property.”
The building with a total floor area of 51,600 m², located in the emerging office district of Wien Nord, was awarded a LEED Gold certificate and is leased to several companies (including Kurier Mediaprint and RALT Raiffeisen Leasing GmbH) with an average rental contract period of 18 years. The infrastructure is further improved by the inclusion of a restaurant and a pharmacy.
Georg Fichtinger, Head of Investment Properties, Capital Markets CBRE Österreich, states: ”The building complex, designed for flexible office use, scores additional points for its excellent transportation links – the city centre can be reached both by public transport and by car in about 10 minutes. Inside the building, the flexible room layout and modern building services offer a suitable environment for every requirement.”
RPHI would like to give thanks for the successful collaboration with CBRE, Binder Grösswang Rechtsanwälte, and Moore Stephens.
space2move fully rented out
It did not take long for the new office building complex “space2move”, designed by the renowned architect's office Neumann & Partner, to be fully rented out. The KURIER moved into the last available 5,600 m² of the office space, which provides a total of 46,000 m² surface area. The online as well as the print business now have the same address.During the short period of the tenant fit-out, RPHI was able to find adequate solutions to fit all needs of their different departments.
Helmut Brandstätter, chief editor of KURIER, is pleased that his employees were satisfied with the new location starting with the first day. The perfect connection to the city by underground and regional express railway just in front of the door, the bicycle ways for cyclers as well as the canteen “space2eat” are very well received.
Topping out ceremony of block C
On November, 19th 2013 the topping-out ceremony of block C of the office building space2move in Vienna’s 19th district took place (block A and B were completed in autumn 2011). At 3:00 p.m. Mr. Dvorcak (Strabag) welcomed all guests and thanked his employees, the designers and the owner for the excellent collaboration. He especially pointed out the efficiency and performance of the craftsmen. Also the successful coordination of the project by Ms. Schmittner (RPHI) was emphasized.
Mr. Pfeffer (RPHI) presented an overview of the ongoing works and announced the take-over of the office space by ZukunftPLUS in the midyear of 2015. After Mr. Adi Tiller (principal 19th district) had illustrated the advantages of the new office space for the city of Vienna, the typical topping-out saying was delivered by the youngest apprentice who traditionally smashed his emptied wineglass. Craftsmen, architects and the project manager were able to measure their manual skills at the common hammering of nails into a small wooden roof-structure.
Afterwards a big buffet with food and drinks served around 150 guests of which some celebrated past midnight.
Second construction phase has started
After the successful completion of the blocks A and B in fall 2011, the construction start of phase C took place in late summer 2012. A total of 36,000 m² of gross floor area, respectively about 21,500 m² of gross lettable area, divided into ground floor and six upper floors, will be built. The completion of phase C is scheduled for the end of 2014. The pre-letting runs far beyond expectations and we are confident that this property will be fully let by the time it is completed.
