    Hamburg/Munich, 28 August 2020 – An international Eversheds Sutherland team has advised KanAm Grund Group on the purchase and financing of the ensemble of historic buildings at 30-33 Molesworth Street in Dublin for one of its special real estate funds. Helaba London branch has financed the purchase of the building complex. The seller was Henderson Park, a pan-European private equity real estate manager based in London. It has been agreed to keep the sales price confidential.

    The fully let portfolio in the Irish capital with approximately 5,300 square metres of office space consists of four independent buildings. All date back to the mid-19th century and have undergone comprehensive refurbishment over the last 20 years, some were completely rebuilt, retaining only the old facade. Molesworth Street in the direct proximity of Trinity College and only a few hundred metres away from the Irish Parliament is one of Dublin's most prestigious office addresses. Among the tenants of the portfolio are Savills Commercial Ireland and the corporate law firm Maples. The portfolio was bought for the special real estate fund KanAm Grund European Cities KI which is used especially by savings banks (Sparkassen) and people's banks (Volksbanken).

    Eversheds Sutherland advised the internationally operating real estate specialist based in Frankfurt am Main on all legal aspects of the cross-border transaction.
