Centrally located in the up-and-coming district of Barmbek in Hamburg Nord, the property was built in 2012 and covers around 20,000 m² of rental space permitting flexible usage.

Constructed between 2008 and 2013, Quartier 21 is an ensemble of 21 listed historic buildings and 16 modern buildings on the site of the former General Hospital of Barmbek. The name also reflects the vision of intergenerational living and working in the 21st century, which has been put into practice here. The area has a neighborhood feel and encompasses 14 hectares of parkland, apartments and townhouses as well as healthcare, education, offices, retail and amenity facilities in close vicinity.
The Ardian team plans to undertake extensive upgrading measures to reposition the property in the market and sustainably increase the attractiveness of the building.
