New project in Aachen


SIGNA sells student apartments to International Campus Group

SIGNA has sold a pro­ject deve­lo­p­ment for stu­dent apart­ments in Aachen with com­ple­ti­on to the Inter­na­tio­nal Cam­pus Group (IC). A total of 165 apart­ments on a gross flo­or area of around 5,700 m² were recent­ly com­ple­ted at Kaser­nen­stras­se 16 in Aachen, with apart­ment sizes vary­ing bet­ween 18 and 32 m². The new buil­ding was han­ded over to Inter­na­tio­nal Cam­pus a few days ago and thus in time for the ope­ning of the sum­mer semes­ter 2021.

“Stu­dent apart­ments con­ti­nue to be cove­ted invest­ments,” says Tobi­as Sau­er­bier, Mana­ging Direc­tor of SIGNA Real Estate. “Apart­ments tail­o­red to the needs of stu­dents are in gre­at demand, par­ti­cu­lar­ly with regard to strai­ned housing mar­kets like Aachen.”

“When it comes to uni­ver­si­ty cities in par­ti­cu­lar, living space comes at a pre­mi­um. We’re con­vin­ced that our new pro­per­ty in opti­mal loca­ti­ons in Aachen will enjoy high demand. Our new apart­ments, with com­mu­nal are­as for coo­king, stu­dy­ing and gam­ing, will be available in time for the 2021 sum­mer semes­ter. At THE FIZZ, stu­dents will also bene­fit from an acti­ve com­mu­ni­ty, com­mon rooms, a varie­ty of other ser­vices and an infra­struc­tu­re per­fect­ly aimed at stu­dents,” explains Micha­el Stapf, Chief Invest­ment Offi­cer of the Inter­na­tio­nal Cam­pus Group.

SIGNA Real Estate has been deve­lo­ping and mana­ging excep­tio­nal real estate pro­jects in cen­tral loca­ti­ons in Ger­ma­ny and Aus­tria for over 20 years. An expe­ri­en­ced team of real estate experts mana­ges all acti­vi­ties from a project’s acqui­si­ti­on to its com­ple­ti­on, and it meets the hig­hest stan­dards with regard to pro­fi­ta­bi­li­ty, tech­no­lo­gy and sus­taina­bi­li­ty. Relia­bi­li­ty, fair­ness and com­ple­ti­on on sche­du­le are at the fore­front of the team’s coope­ra­ti­on with pro­ject part­ners. The­se values make SIGNA a respec­ted part­ner, and they are ancho­red in the phi­lo­so­phy of the com­pa­ny, which was foun­ded by René Ben­ko.

Its port­fo­lio includes the KaDe­We and the Upper West Tower by the Gedächt­nis­kir­che in Ber­lin, the spec­ta­cu­lar Elb­tower highri­se pro­ject in Hamburg’s Hafen­Ci­ty, the pre­mi­um Als­ter­haus depart­ment store in Ham­burg and the Ober­pol­lin­ger and the Kar­stadt deve­lo­p­ment pro­ject near Munich’s cen­tral train sta­ti­on. In Aus­tria, the out­stan­ding port­fo­lio pro­per­ties include the pre­mi­um Park Hyatt Vien­na hotel and the Gol­de­nes Quar­tier busi­ness dis­trict.

With the­se pro­jects, SIGNA is making important con­tri­bu­ti­ons to the deve­lo­p­ment of cities. SIGNA doesn’t just con­cen­tra­te on indi­vi­du­al pro­per­ties; it recon­cep­tua­li­ses topics such as inner city deve­lo­p­ment, sus­taina­bi­li­ty, varie­ty of uti­li­sa­ti­ons, net­wor­king and mobi­li­ty. For liveable cities – for all of us.
