Daimler finalizes sale of Berlin complex to SEB

German car maker Daimler said on Friday it had closed the sale of property on Berlin's Potsdamer Platz to the Swedish bank SEB for "almost €1.4 billion" ($2.1 billion).

The Swedish bank’s Frankfurt-based SEB Asset Management unit acquired a total of 19 buildings with a combined surface of 500,000 square meters (5.38 million square feet), roughly the size of 66 soccer pitches.

The buildings include offices, shops, restaurants, hotels and flats.
