The property has seven storeys and an underground car park with 76 parking spaces.

“The sale of Laim 290 reflects our strategy of disposing of smaller properties held by Unilmmo: Deutschland,” said Philip La Pierre, Head of Investment Management Europe at Union Investment Real Estate GmbH, Hamburg. “Against a backdrop of strong demand for well let properties in the Munich investment market, we have chosen the perfect time to sell this office building,” continued La Pierre.
