Mercurius Real Estate AG: Construction begins on the second micro-apartment

complex with 164 residential units in Frankfurt Bockenheim

Frankfurt am Main, 07/12/2010

In the fourth quarter of the year, Mercurius Real Estate AG began construction on

another micro-apartment complex in the Frankfurt district of Bockenheim, together with

its project partner DOMUS VIVENDI GmbH & Co. KG. A total of 164 20 sq m part-furnished

residential units will be built. The complex is due to be completed in November 2011.

The concept of “micro living” is increasingly piquing the interest of institutional

investors in particular. While building permits are decreasing and rents increasing as a

result of the housing shortage, the micro complex in Bockenheim is providing a

balance and offering commuters, young professionals and students an attractive chance to

live somewhere that is both central and affordable. The building has been designed as an

Efficiency House 55 in line with EnEv 2009 and shows that Mercurius Real Estate AG is

focusing on sustainable, efficient construction.

“The success that we had in letting the first micro complex ‚Quartier etc., has shown us

that micro living will be very much in demand in the future due to demographic

change”, says Atilla Özkan, CEO of Mercurius Real Estate AG.
