The seller is also (main) tenant
The site is a plot of land with an area of 45,000 square meters. It is located in the Talhaus industrial estate northwest of the actual Hockenheim housing estate and near the Hockenheim motorway junction. The building complex on the site consists of a production hall with four bays and an office section as the building head. The seller and tenant is Outokumpu Stainless Holding. Outokumpu is a Finnish stainless steel producer and metal processor with worldwide activities. The Hockenheim site also processes and refines stainless steel.
However, Outokumpu only leases back 75 percent of the space. New tenants are to be found for the remainder after modernization and upgraded fire protection.
