A lease agreement over 20 years has been signed with the Novum Hotel Group, including two additional five-year extension options for the operator. (Beyond that, the contract details will reportedly remain undisclosed.) 

After construction (Adolf Lupp GmbH + Co KG is general contractor), Commerz Real is planning to integrate the property into the public real estate fund HausInvest. The company organized the acquisition as an asset deal in the form of a forward funding.
