“With the award of this mandate, we have now extended our cooperation with MEC to smaller locations in our portfolio. MEC has presented a convincing concept for the management of the portfolio and has repeatedly demonstrated its competence and efficiency in the cooperation to date,” explains Kathrin Andres, Head of Retail Germany at Nuveen Real Estate.

Including the new management mandates, MEC currently manages 25 retail properties for Nuveen Real Estate, including 14 property management locations and full mandates for eleven retail parks and hybrid malls.

Strong anchor tenants, free parking spaces
