      (Munich, October 12, 2022) Only a few weeks after the successful purchase of a 10,000 square meter residential project with 153 units, the investment manager WEALTHCORE realizes the second acquisition in Vienna for its Green Impact Fund according to Art. 9. This is a 3,000 square meter development project at Rudolf-Simon-Gasse 5 with a total of 49 units, generous common areas and an environmentally friendly energy supply concept. Green, urban and family-friendly, the new construction project is an ideal fit for WEALTHCORE's dark green Green Impact fund series with demanding sustainability standards. The new acquisition for the Art. 9 fund, which focuses on residential properties with the highest ecological and energy-efficient standards, strengthens the basis for the planned 3.5% p.a. distribution. Currently, according to a survey by rating agency Morningstar, only around 3.6 percent of funds throughout Europe qualify for this high sustainability standard. The open-ended special AIF is aimed at professional and semi-professional investors. The target volume is EUR 500 million.

      Already second purchase for Green Impact Fund in early fall 2022

      The new residential project at Rudolf-Simon-Gasse 5 is the second purchase by WEALTHCORE Investment Management in early fall 2022 for the Green Impact Fund. "In the market for Article 9-compliant residential real estate, we were once again able to acquire a long-term sustainable property for our Green Impact Fund, which comes with golden sustainability certification from the Austrian Society for Sustainable Real Estate (ÖGNI). Only properties with particular ecological, economic and socio-cultural added value, such as the one at Rudolf-Simon-Gasse 5, are certified ÖGNI Gold and EU taxonomy-compliant," explains Ralph Andermann, Managing Director of WEALTHCORE. Andermann sees the project development industry in a state of flux: "Developers must start early to create the digital prerequisites for the strict specifications of dark green funds in order to pass the taxonomy check in the course of due diligence. Projects must not only meet the highest sustainability requirements, but also provide all the necessary data that an Article 9 fund needs for its reporting obligations. There is a lot of catching up to do here. So far, there are few that are doing this well." WEALTHCORE focuses its investments for the Green Impact Fund on core / core+ new residential construction and core refurbished existing stock allocated in Germany's top 8 markets as well as in Austria's capital Vienna.

      Even more green for Vienna Simmering

      The planning of the above-ground four-story residential building project focused on climate-friendly and self-sufficient energy supply, consumption efficiency through digitalization, and social added value for the residents. Planned as a CO2-neutral property, users are supplied with heat and energy through geothermal probes and photovoltaics, and residential units are tempered with underfloor heating. All 49 apartments have open spaces such as balconies and terraces. The property is maximally landscaped and offers common areas for all. The Viennese office Riepl Kaufmann Bammer, which has successfully completed the redesign of the ORF Center in addition to planning residential and educational buildings, is responsible for the design. At Rudolf-Simon-Gasse 5, a calm classical facade meets a rhythmic cubature, creating different roof terraces. "The successful, very aesthetic layout of the residential building also creates real social added value, in addition to green open and communal spaces, because it intensifies the residents' identification with the building and their home. Everyone likes to live in a beautiful ambience," says Andermann. Rudolf-Simon-Gasse has optimal public transport connections: the Kaiserebersdorf S-Bahn station and streetcar stops on lines 11 and 17 are within walking distance. Sufficient charging stations and around 100 bicycle parking spaces are available for climate-friendly individual transport with e-cars and e-bikes.
