- Successful re-letting of former KMPG building in Frankfurt Mertonviertel
- Rapid lease-up is testimony to alstria's strong asset management expertise

alstria office REIT-AG (symbol: AOX, ISIN: DE000A0LD2U1), the leading German office REIT focused solely on acquiring, owning and managing office real estate in Germany, is announcing that it has agreed a long-term lease on its Mertonviertel asset in Frankfurt.

The new tenant, a leading German tour operator, signed a 10-year lease contract for around 6,100 sqm of office and ancillary space in the 9,200 sqm building. The start of the lease is planned for the third quarter of 2011, shortly after the building will be vacated by the current tenant KPMG.

"The speed at which alstria was able to re-let the asset in the Mertonviertel demonstrates the strengths of our asset management expertise even outside of our core Hamburg market", said Olivier Elamine, CEO of alstria.

The lease transaction was brokered by the Frankfurt branch of AENGEVELT real estate.
