'For us, this transaction is the strategic start of our move into the rest of Germany', says Niclas Karoff, member of the Management Board of TLG IMMOBILIEN AG. 'With this acquisition in Frankfurt we are starting off with exceptionally well-positioned properties in each of the micro-markets. From this position we intend to systematically expand our portfolio in the promising Rhine-Main area as well as in other locations in Germany. Our business model will not change, meaning that our activities in the future will still be determined by our local proximity to our customers and markets', continues Karoff.

Until now, the company has mostly been active in the office markets in Berlin, Dresden, Leipzig and Rostock. Since its IPO in 2014, TLG IMMOBILIEN AG has grown steadily by acquiring office, retail and hotel properties in its core regions.
