The Grounds Real Estate Development AG sells a major project at Terminal 3 in Zeppelinheim

Berlin, 24 September 2019. The Grounds Real Estate Development AG (ISIN DE000A2GSVV5) has successfully sold its shares in the major project at Terminal 3 in Zeppelinheim, thus achieving one of the milestones announced for 2019. The hotel project at Frankfurt Airport’s Terminal 3, currently under construction, was sold in the context of a share deal. The parties agreed to keep the purchase price confidential.

Building permit applications for the Terminal 3 hotel were submitted to allow the start of construction to be scheduled for 2020. Completion is planned to take place when Terminal 3 is brought into operation. The site area is 8,400 m², on which 244 rooms with an associated underground car park will be constructed.
As a departure from the original planning, the transfer of rights and obligations, and thus also the effect on turnover, will already take place for the current 2019 financial year.

Moreover, The Grounds is in concrete sales discussions relating to other projects.

The company will publish its group figures for the first six months of 2019 in the near future.
