Structural works complete, 75 percent of apartments already let - high demand for micro-

apartment complex by DOMUS VIVENDI and Mercurius Real Estate in Frankfurt’s Ostend

Frankfurt am Main, 19th September 2013

Thousands of employees from the European Central Bank (ECB) will move into the new headquarters

in Frankfurt’s Ostend in mid-2014. At the same time, the “Little East” micro-apartment complex by the

DOMUS VIVENDI GROUP and Mercurius Real Estate, which is just a few minutes’ walk away, will be

ready for occupancy. And demand is high: 75 percent of the 272 part-furnished apartments have already

been let. “Our project is progressing extremely well. The structural works were completed four weeks

ahead of schedule in August and all trade jobs have already been commissioned”, says Thomas Oellig,

managing director of DOMUS VIVENDI GmbH & Co. KG.

The partners have already enjoyed success with the micro-apartment complex concept in other locations

in Frankfurt: Two buildings with over

340 residential units have recently been completed at

Westbahnhof. They were fully let before completion. A sustainable concept has been developed from a

niche in the real estate market and this concept can close a gap currently facing Ostend: the ECB has

announced that it will be employing over one thousand new members of staff next year. But living space

is scarce here; especially as the City of Frankfurt has no new apartments due to become available on

the Hanauer Landstraße in the near future.

Little East is a KfW Efficiency House 40 and enjoys a natural location near the riverbanks of the Main.

It is also close to the Ostpark and Frankfurt Zoo. S-Bahn and U-Bahn stations lie in close proximity,

providing rapid transport links to all destinations in Frankfurt. The development has 76 car parking

spaces in addition to the 272 residential units. Responsible parties are currently holding talks with

institutional investors concerning the sale of the real estate.
