PARIS — On a last-minute Christmas shopping spree this past weekend, Austrian real estate company Signa acquired the site of Berlin’s iconic department store KaDeWe along with 16 other Karstadt locations, giving a strong boost to the German property market.
The Innsbruck-based real estate giant said it paid 1.1 billion euros, or $1.45 billion at current exchange, to acquire the collection of buildings from HighStreet, a consortium that includes Whitehall, the Goldman Sachs property fund, and Deutsche Bank’s RREEF.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
