publity secures full occupancy in Essen property – new tenancy agreement with University Hospital

Frankfurt/Main, 7 May 2020 – publity AG (Scale, ISIN DE0006972508) has achieved another leasing success for the approximately 100,000 square metre property in Essen, which is part of its own real estate portfolio. Another renowned tenant has now been successfully gained with the University Hospital Essen. The University Hospital has leased around 3,000 square metres of office and storage space for five years, which had previously been temporarily used by the Karstadt department store group. By concluding the tenancy agreement with the University Hospital Essen, publity continues to ensure full occupancy of the property. One of the other largest tenants in the property is the Essen police force, which has leased extensive space until 2028.

publity had acquired the property in Essen-Bredeney in 2019 for its own real estate portfolio, which is included in the subsidiary PREOS Real Estate AG and which has been expanded since the beginning of 2019 alone with German office properties worth around one billion euros.

Thomas Olek, CEO of publity AG: “We are pleased that we were able to quickly provide the University Hospital Essen with new office and storage space, which it needs more urgently than ever due to the corona pandemic. Also, it is a gain for us, as we have now been able to sign a further prominent tenant for our property in Essen and thus continue to ensure full occupancy of the property. At the same time it underpins our very well functioning network.”
