Global investment manager Angelo Gordon and Kintyre have strengthened their partnership in Germany with a new redevelopment project in Berlin.

Angelo Gordon and the Frankfurt-based real estate investor have teamed up to buy Park Center Treptow, a 28,000sqm retail-centric property, with a plan to reposition the property as a mixed-use asset.

The latest deal is the second regeneration/redevelopment project that Angelo Gordon and Kintyre have acquired in Berlin together in the past 18 months.

Adam Pearce, co-founder and managing partner at Kintyre, said: “This is a very exciting opportunity to transform this very well-known property into a modern mixed-use precinct.

“This acquisition forms part of Kintyre’s wider strategy of building a portfolio of well-located urban regeneration and ‘Stadtquartier’ development projects.”

Marcel Hertig, director of Europe real estate at Angelo Gordon, said: “We really like the immediate neighbourhood of Park Center with all of its hip bars, clubs and event spaces between Elsenbrücke and Oberbaumbrücke.

“Located next to S-Bahn ‘Treptower Park’, the asset has tremendous potential for creative ideas that we plan to unlock with our partner Kintyre.”
