Frankfurt, 4. August 2017 – Full service European real estate management and investment company Kintyre has announced the completion of a regional office transaction in a deal worth £51m. Already a leading real estate management firm in Germany, where Kintyre manages 110 assets worth almost £1 billion, this latest deal represents Kintyre’s first UK deal, since launching its UK platform earlier this year.
