Nuveen Real Estate manages 80% of the Gropius Passagen property through a joint venture with Unibail Rodamco Westfield. Nuveen is one of the world's largest real estate investment managers with approximately €107 billion in assets under management.

Gropius Passagen is one of the largest shopping centers in Berlin. A five-year refurbishment program, due to be completed in 2020, will completely modernize the center with a mix of national and international top brands, a newly created food court and a multiplex cinema. The center’s turnover was €237 million in 2018 and is expected to increase because of the repositioning and improved asset quality.

A Dentons team, led by Frankfurt partner Bernhard Gemmel, advised Nuveen on the refinancing process and negotiated the financing and security documentation together with Allianz Real Estate. Partner Stéphane Hadet and senior associate Christophe Renaudin from the Banking and Finance practice in Luxembourg were also involved in the deal.

Dentons has advised Nuveen for several years, most recently on the refinancing of an existing acquisition loan in connection with a large shopping center in southern Germany.

Advisors Nuveen Real Estate:

Dentons (Frankfurt): Bernhard Gemmel (Partner, Lead, Real Estate Finance), Tobias von Gostomski (Counsel, Banking & Finance), Dr. Andrej Latinovic (Counsel, Real Estate)

Dentons (Luxembourg): Stéphane Hadet (Partner), Christophe Renaudin (Senior Associate, both Banking & Finance).
