'Sachsen Forum' has a lettable area of around 11,700 sqm. Built in 1996 and partially revitalised in 2016, the property generates around EUR 1.4 m per annum from rental agreements. The weighted average lease term (WALT) is 3.4 years. The EPRA Vacancy Rate of the property is approx. 1%. Anchor tenants include the well-established local food retailer Konsum Dresden, the health and beauty chain Rossmann and the discounter Penny. In addition to its retail space, some of the space in the property is being used for offices and medical practices. The property was sold by TAM Grundstücksverwaltungsgesellschaft mbH & Co. Objekt Dresden-Gorbitz KG and the transaction was brokered by Tust Immobilien.

The directly neighbouring 'Fachmarktzentrum Merianplatz' has a lettable area of around 3,000 sqm and is also in good structural condition. It generates around EUR 300,000 from rental agreements per annum. The property has a WALT of 3.8 years and an occupancy rate of 97%. In Ostsächsische Sparkasse Dresden, KIK and Ernsting's Family, this centre also has well-known chains as tenants. The transaction was brokered by Cushman & Wakefield.

'Dresden is one of the prospering and fast-growing cities in eastern Germany. The steady influx of people and its positive economic performance make Dresden a popular place in which to invest, even in terms of convenience stores, which is why we are happy to add this highly promising micro-location to our retail portfolio', says Niclas Karoff, member of the Management Board of TLG IMMOBILIEN AG.
