Acquisition of a photo agency with history
The office building is a development project. The property is located in a side street not far from the extensive Montmartre cemetery, a large green area in the Parisian sea of houses. The building was erected in the 1950s and comprises two floors with a total rental space of around 700 square meters in addition to the ground floor. Commodus Real Estate is planning to add a further three floors and expand the rental space to 970 square meters. The building is to be built in a sustainable manner. The company is aiming to be awarded the coveted BREEAM certificate. The seller is the international photo agency Magnum Photos – founded in 1947 by US photographer legend Robert Capa. The agency will use the building as a tenant for another year. Then a new tenancy is aimed at.
