The Grounds Real Estate Development AG signs sales contract for Magdeburg micro-apartment block project, contributing to sales revenue and earnings in the second half of the current year 2019.

Berlin, 30 September 2019. Only a few days after the sale of the major Terminal 3 project in Zeppelinheim, The Grounds Real Estate Development AG (ISIN DE000A2GSVV5) can now report another completion. Shares in the planned micro-apartment block at No. 1 Halberstädter Strasse in Magdeburg have now also been sold in the context of a share deal.

The building permit application for the micro-apartment block comprising 174 residential units, preferably for use by students, was submitted a few weeks ago. Project completion is scheduled for late summer 2021. The parties agreed to keep the buyer’s identity and purchase price confidential.
Transfer of rights and obligations, and thus also the inflow of the proceeds from the sale, will already take place in the current 2019 financial year. Thus preparations and activities in the first half of 2019 are now having a positive effect, whereas sales revenues and results in the period, as expected, are below those of the previous year. The Grounds will publish details in the context of its half-yearly report.
