Grosse Bleichen 23-27 in Hamburg
The Kaisergalerie, built between 1907-1909 and registered as a historical monument in Hamburg, is a jewel in the heart of Hamburg’s city centre, not far from the Rathausmarkt and the Binnenalster. The property is located at Großen Bleichen 23-27. The area is characterised by high-end retail, exclusive office addresses and diverse cultural institutions which attract many tourists throughout the year. This qualities makes the Kaisergalerie one of the most desirable locations in Hamburg.
In January 2010 alstria and Quantum Immobilien AG signed this joint venture. Due to this cooperation, modern premises and a representative ambience behind the historic facade were created.
Many of the original characteristic elements of the property could be preserved. These include the historic columns, coffered ceilings, original wall coverings which have been discovered and reconstructed to contribute further to the properties charm and historic identity.
The seven-story office building is divided by two large atriums. Due to the relocation of the Ohnsorg-Theater in 2011, the released areas could be restructured into attractive retail space with approx. 3,400 sqm space in total. A five-meter wide passage on the ground floor leads through the centre of the building and connects the highly frequented "Grosse Bleichen" with the Bleichenfleet. In addition, a new footbridge was added to the side of the Fleet Kaisergalerie, offering a possibility to stroll along the fleet canals of the Alte Post to Kaisergalerie and on to the city courts.
After the extensive revitalisation of the historic building, the Kaisergalerie is fully let as of autumn 2015. In addition to the well-known interior decorator GÄRTNER Internationale Möbel who has already presented their new show room with total area of 2,500 sqm on the premises, established fashion boutiques such as BRAUN and U2K (a project of UNGER fashion) were successfully acquired as new tenants. The last remaining rental spaces within the Kaisergalerie will also be handed over to renowned retail brands which will further express and highlight the diversity and style of this unique location. With high-end designer fashion like Karl Lagerfeld, the fashion label REISS and Barons & Bastards the Kaisergalerie has established itself as a prospering location in the heart of the city.
