Market potential

The market for logistics real estate in the Ruhr region has long stood out for its absolute size. In a phase in which logistics is experiencing a boom throughout Germany with rising rents and falling yields, this is also clearly reflected in new construction completions, which have risen by almost 50% year-on-year to approx. 490,000 sqm NF. In contrast, the investment market is somewhat more subdued than the logistics markets in most German A-cities, both in terms of its absolute volume growth and the dynamics of its falling yields.

In the long term, the supply of the 18-million-strong state as well as the industrial clusters in the Ruhr region will be heavily dependent on efficient logistics. The markets for logistics and corporate real estate are mutually dependent.
