CORPUS SIREO Real Estate has acquired the Oasis Florenc office property in Prague from an international investor. Due to its location in the increasingly popular 8th district of Florenc, between Nové Město (New Town) and Karlín, the property counts among the most sought-after office buildings in the capital city of the Czech Republic. The purchased asset is located near the Vltava river and will now be included in the pan-European DEREIF SICAV-FIS fund. The parties agreed not to disclose the purchase price. The seller was advised by CBRE and Kinstellar. Corpus Sireo were advised by TPA and bpv Braun Partners.
The property was completed in 2007 and offers 18,700 sqm of office and retail premises with 141 parking spaces.

The property has been successfully managed by EURAMCO Asset Czech (formerly SachsenFonds) since its development in 2007 until closing this transaction.

This sale represents a positive exit for our client, whilst also offering a great long term investment for a large institutional investor.”
