Prime Properties, a Luxembourg-based investment fund acquires two German elderly homes with support from AC Tischendorf

Prime Properties is a Luxembourg-based investment fund, managing more than 700 million € of real estate assets (healthcare, residential, office and retail) in 7 European countries.Through its sub-fund “Assisted Living Core”*, Prime Properties acquired two prestigious senior residences located in Baden-Württemberg, Germany from the French ORPEA GROUP.

The two residences gather 175 rooms and 49 appartments (assisted living) with a total useable space of approximatively 15,000 sqm. One residence ‘Weingarten Nursing Home’ is still under construction and is located in the inner-city area of Weingarten (near Karlsruhe). The other one ‘Haus Edelberg Senior Citizens’ is located in the center of Elchsheim-Illingen and was built and delivered in 2020. Both residences will continue to be operated by ORPEA and were for this purpose leased back from ORPEA on a long-term basis. Accordingly, both transactions were structured as ‘Sale & Lease Back’ agreement. The purchase price ranges in the higher double-digit million range.
