HPM is awarded Real I.S. mandate for 23,750 square metres of lettable area

HPM is Awarded Real I.S. Mandate for 23,750 Square Metres of Lettable Area

  • Mandate includes two prestigious office buildings in Berlin and Bremen
  • Property management by HPM safely in place even during coronavirus crisis

Hamburg, 2. April 2020 – HIH Property Management GmbH (HPM) just acquired a new mandate by Real I.S. that commenced yesterday, 1 April 2020. The contract by Real I.S., an investment fund service provider owned by the BayernLB state bank and specialising in real estate investments, includes two prestigious office properties with a combined lettable area of 23,750 square metres. The eight-storey Kontorhaus office building in Berlin is located on the Friedrichstrasse high street. It provides around 7,750 square metres of lettable area, roughly 6,450 square metres thereof being taken up by office accommodation. The remaining 1,300 square metres break down into gastronomy, retail and storage units. The building was raised in 1998 and is fully occupied. The six-storey mixed office/retail building “Eins” in Bremen is part of the Weser Quartier block and overlooks the River Weser. Built in 2016, the property divides into two building sections with a combined gross lettable area of 16,000 square metres, of which around 1,600 square metres represent retail and restaurant units. The Eins building, which is also fully occupied, was awarded a Gold certificate by the DGNB German Sustainable Building Council. The new assignment brings the total lettable area that HPM manages on behalf of Real I.S. up to around 62,000 square metres in five commercial properties. All things considered, the HPM has c. 8.1 billion euros in assets under management.

“The Kontorhaus building is the first German asset we succeeded in acquiring for our open-ended real estate fund for private clients. Especially the flexible use options for the office units and its superior central location make Kontorhaus a sustainable and safe investment,” said Axel Schulz, Global Head of Investment Management at Real I.S. AG.

Christian Kypke, member of the senior management and in charge of new account acquisition, said: “Our first account negotiations of the year were brought to a rather successful conclusion. In addition to the mandate by Real I.S., we also acquired a new mandate for a real estate portfolio of Tristan Capital Group.” André Vollbach, Managing Director of HPM, added: “Even in the midst of the coronavirus crisis, we’re able to ensure that interdisciplinary teams continue to provide our services at every one of our locations. But, of course, chief priority is given to the protection of our staff and clients.”

Over the past ten years, HPM reliably placed at the top of the list in the customer rankings of the Bell Management Report. Indeed, the company placed first in the Office category last year.

HPM wins mandate for 35,000 square metres of rental area

  • Portfolio consists of five properties across the federal states
  • The properties are in a fund of the British investment company Tristan Capital

Hamburg, Germany, 18 March 2020 – HIH Property Management GmbH (HPM) has won a new mandate. The assignment includes property management for five office properties with a total rental area of 35,000 square metres. The properties are in a fund of the British investment company Tristan Capital. Asset management is the responsibility of the Silverton Group, Frankfurt. The multi-tenant properties are located in Eschborn near Frankfurt, Meerbusch near Düsseldorf, Neuried and Ismaning near Munich and Hildesheim. With the exception of the property in Hildesheim, which also has a significant proportion of retail and residential use in a central downtown location, these are purely office properties in business parks.

“This assignment confirms that our local presence is getting stronger”, says André Vollbach, Managing Director of HPM. “With interdisciplinary teams at all top locations in Germany and our quality standards, we are well positioned to manage such a portfolio and also pursue its further development if applicable.” HPM has consistently held a top placement in the customer rankings of the Bell Management Report over the past ten years. Last year the company took first place in the Office category.

HPM aims for effiency increases in 2020

HPM Aims for Efficiency Increases in 2020

  • Portfolio values consolidated on high level of more than 8 billion euros
  • Management mandates for 434 properties with a combined floor area of 3.3 mio. sqm
  • Half of all buildings supplied with green electricity or climate-friendly gas

Hamburg, 13 February 2020 – By the end of last year, HIH Property Management GmbH (HPM) reported more than 8 billion euros in real estate assets under management, and thereby consolidated the high level of the previous year. 2019 also marked the tenth time in as many years that HPM scored one of the best customer rankings in the “Office” category of the Bell Management Report. The latest account, acquired by HPM in late 2019, is a mandate by Commerz Real, consisting of eight properties of the Millennium Portfolio which are located in Berlin, Hamburg and Leipzig, and which have an aggregate floor area of around 49,000 square metres. All in, this high-quality provider for commercial property management in Germany had a total floor area of 3.3 million square metres in 434 properties under management by year-end 2019.

In the course of last year, HPM reviewed older property management mandates, renegotiated some of them and divested itself from unprofitable mandates. “On balance, 2019 concluded with another increase in net income for us,” said André Vollbach, Managing Director of HIH Property Management GmbH. Senior management member Christian Kypke, who is responsible for new account acquisition, takes a confident view of 2020: “Our first mandate negotiations this year are making good progress.”

At the same time, the focus has shifted more toward technical project management for need-driven optimisations of commercial real estate. During the refurbishment and upgrading of existing buildings, HPM provides end-to-end project supervision, handling everything from stocktaking, taking care of building-law issues to the structured transfer of buildings back into operation.

By the end of 2019, half of the managed properties were already supplied with green electricity or climatefriendly gas. This helped HPM to push down carbon emissions of the managed properties down by around 12,400 tons per year. “The sustainability angle is steadily gaining in importance for institutional real estate investors and the buildings’ tenants. We plan to intensify the integration of ESG criteria in the best interest of our clients in future,” said André Vollbach. For instance, HPM has adopted the goal of transitioning all of its properties to green energy suppliers over the next few years. Bettina Höffmann, Member of the Senior Management of HIH Property Management, commented: “While we do know the consumption data of the common areas, we have no way to see past the tenant’s front door. This is why we put a premium on maintaining personal contact with the tenants and on robust advisory, because building occupiers play a decisive role for the building’s carbon footprint.”

Höffmann counts the increased requirements in the area of lettings and certain sub-areas in asset management along with the implementation of digitisation projects among the latest challenges in the industry at a time when contract periods are shortening and the high-skilled labour market is visibly experiencing capacity bottlenecks. At the moment, HPM employs 221 professionals at its seven branch offices in Hamburg, Düsseldorf, Cologne, Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt and Stuttgart.

„On balance, 2019 concluded with another increase in net income for us. The sustainability angle is steadily gaining in importance for institutional real estate investors and the buildings’ tenants. We intend to intensify the integration of ESG criteria in the best interest of our clients in future."
