Zürich, 31 July 2014 - Peach Property Group AG, a leading property investor
and developer of high-end residential and commercial real estate, today
announced the successful completion of the first stage of its major "Am
Zirkus 1" project in Berlin. The interior work has been finished on the
commercial units covering more than 4,600 square metres, most of which have
already been rented. The anchor tenant is Roland Berger Strategy
Consultants, a leading international management consultancy, who has signed
a long-term lease on attractive market terms. Roland Berger Strategy
Consultants have turned six floors of the "Am Zirkus 1" building into their
new Berlin headquarters.

"Am Zirkus 1" is in a unique location directly on the river Spree in
Berlin, next to the Berliner Ensemble theatre and in the immediate vicinity
of Friedrichstrasse in Berlin-Mitte. This outstanding property comprises
commercial space as well as a 309 room hotel. The Fattal Group will open a
boutique hotel here under the "Leonardo" brand on 14 August 2014. A 20-year
lease agreement has been signed with the Fattal Group.

According to the asset reporting published today, good progress has been
made on the other projects as well. The construction work for "yoo berlin",
the twin project to "Am Zirkus 1", is far enough along that the first
condominiums will soon be handed over to their buyers. Around 92 percent of
the 95 apartments have already been sold including authentication by a
notary public or reserved. The large "Harvestehuder-weg 36" project in
Hamburg is also close to being completed. According to the appraisal of the
independent property experts of Wüest & Partner AG, the market value of the
entire property portfolio rose to CHF 595.9 million as at the end of June
2014, which is an increase of 10.4 percent compared with the end of 2013.
Investment properties account for 26 percent of this figure.

Thomas Wolfensberger, CEO of Peach Property Group AG, said: "We are proud
to have successfully completed this high-quality project at a prime
location in Berlin. With Roland Berger Strategy Consultants, we have
managed to attract one of the most internationally renowned consultancies
as a long-term tenant. We believe this validates our expertise in the
development and marketing of exclusive real estate projects. The next
milestone will be reached soon when the 'Leonardo Berlin Mitte' hotel opens
on 14 August."
