G27 Academic Campus & Student Housing
DBI and Macro Sea strategically identified and evaluated properties to develop an academic campus in Berlin, Germany. In The fall of 2013, DBI and its partners managed the acquisition of the asset, secured entitlements and financing, and negotiated a long-term lease with a leading international non-profit education organization. Construction, including the gut renovation of the 80,000 sf complex plus courtyard, commenced in August 2014. Since then, DBI and Macro Sea have transformed the industrial facility into a campus with art and architecture studios, classrooms, offices, lounges, and 200 beds of student housing. The project was completed on time and under budget for the fall 2015 semester.
