The office space at DomAquarée in central Berlin is now 100 per cent let following the acquisition of a new tenant. A long-term lease has been signed with Mobile Motion GmbH for the last remaining vacant office unit, comprising approximately 793 sq m. The retail space has been 100 per cent let since 2014. The overall occupancy level of the ensemble now stands at 99 per cent.

Young company Mobile Motion developed the video app Dubsmash, which is one of the fastest-growing mobile apps in the world with over 75 million downloads. “We look forward to occupying our new headquarters in DomAquarée, in the heart of Berlin, in April 2016. As a fast-growing technology company, the property’s good infrastructure links and modern fit-out are key benefits,” said Roland Grenke, managing director at Mobile Motion GmbH. In order to drive continuous innovation in the area of mobile video communication for its customers in over 100 countries, the company intends to focus on expanding its international engineering and product development teams at the DomAquarée location.

The acquisition of Mobile Motion as a new tenant underlines the importance of DomAquarée as a location for technology companies. In September 2015, another technology player was gained for DomAquarée in the shape of TechCode Accelerator (Germany) GmbH. Occupying 1,362 sq m of space, TechCode is a business incubator and accelerator that helps technology-oriented Internet start-ups to develop their technological innovations and gain access to the Chinese market. Other tenants from the tech sector include ESRI Deutschland GmbH and ION Trading.

DomAquarée opened on 11 May 2004 and forms part of the portfolio of open-ended real estate fund UniImmo: Deutschland. In total, the ensemble offers 25,404 sq m of office space, approximately 6,950 sq m of retail space, some 8,548 sq m of residential space and around 23,563 sq m of hotel space, which is occupied by a Radisson Blu hotel.
