Two weeks after announcing the lease agreements with Vedacon and Posco, STRABAG Real Estate (SRE) can report another leasing success for THE TWIST: Beko Grundig Deutschland GmbH is relocating its Northern European headquarters from Neu-Isenburg to Eschborn. The manufacturer of household and electrical appliances secured around 2,700 sqm of office space and 520 sqm for a showroom. The contract came about thanks to the mediation of the brokerage firm Avison Young.
Attractive office as growth driver
"2020 was the most successful year in our company's history. The move within the Rhine-Main region to one of Eschborn's most modern office buildings is another important milestone in our ambitious AMBITION 2020+ growth program in Germany, as well as in our strategy for the Northern EU region," explains Mario Vogl, CEO of Beko Grundig Deutschland GmbH. He then goes on to explain why THE TWIST best meets the company's requirements among all the offers examined in the greater Frankfurt area:
Representative, flexible and sustainable.
On the one hand, the attractive architecture was decisive. It represents "new thinking, new working" and helps the company position itself as an interesting employer in the region. This is accompanied by a high degree of floor plan flexibility, which enables new work concepts and thus contemporary working standards. On the other hand, the available space not only provides room for expanding the headquarters, but also harmoniously integrates special areas such as the showroom for the Beko and Grundig brands, which is suitable for public use. Another plus point for THE TWIST was the DGNB pre-certification in gold. For the environmentally conscious company, which is industry number one in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, the only option was to move into a demonstrably sustainable building. The new headquarters in THE TWIST Eschborn are scheduled to be occupied in the second quarter of next year.
Continued high level of rental interest
"Beko Grundig Deutschland GmbH, with the positive image of its Beko and Grundig brands and the extremely dynamic development of the company, is virtually predestined for THE TWIST," says Andreas Hülsken, SRE's Rhine-Main division manager, delighted at the latest lease signing. This means that around 60% of the building ensemble is now leased, with further interested parties in the pipeline.
"Eschborn-Süd continues to develop into an exciting location for companies. There is still tremendous potential here - and not just for tenants looking for a suitable location," explains Bastian Jourdan, Head of Office Leasing Frankfurt at Avison Young.
