Hines, the international real estate firm, has won the lifestyle brand Marc O’Polo as a new tenant for the residential and commercial building at Kärntner Street 9 in Vienna.

The first store in the new THE SCANDINAVIAN STUDIO concept will occupy 200sq m at the prime site and open its doors at the end of September. Together with the already opened flagship boutique Nespresso Atelier, the retail space at the location is now fully leased.

Christoph Reschke, Managing Director at Hines Immobilien, said: “We are very pleased to have won Marc O’Polo as a highly attractive tenant. Just like Nespresso, the brand is an excellent fit for our property and its prime location. The two leasing successes in a challenging retail market is testament to our strategy that great buildings in prime locations will survive and thrive. In addition, we are conducting a series of talks for the leasing of the office space on the upper floor with the aim of achieving a suitable and sustainable user mix.”
