Marquard & Bahls signs the contract for the sale of the Hamburg headquarters building

Marquard & Bahls has sold the building of its Hamburg headquarters to institutional investors advised by J.P. Morgan Asset Management in a sale-and-lease-back transaction. The agreement was signed on December 14, 2021; the closing is scheduled for the end of Q1 2022.

Located in the heart of Hamburg’s Hafencity, the brick building designed by Gewers Pudewill is a state-of-the-art property of approximately 18,000 m², conceived with a high demand for sustainability and energy efficiency.

Marquard & Bahls is convinced that J.P. Morgan Asset Management is the right partner to continue maintaining the building at a high level. Marquard & Bahls has leased the building back in full; the companies Oiltanking and Mabanaft will also continue to be located in the building.

Marquard & Bahls AG was legally advised by Freshfields, J.P. Morgan Asset Management by Hengeler Mueller. Jones Lang LaSalle SE arranged the transaction.
