Market potential

The commercial investment market has seen the addition of a young, but no less attractive investment alternative: corporate real estate. Corporate real estate is generally defined as mixed-use commercial properties with a typically mittelstand tenant structure. The mixed use incorporates office, warehouse, production, research, service and/or wholesale space. From the viewpoint of investors, the high reversibility of use and associated third-party utilisation as well as multi-tenant capability are benefits of this asset category.


The extensive supply of conversion sites and old industrial sites with administration and production areas mean that the Ruhr Metropolis has great potential for the further development of this real estate category. Many municipalities are already complaining of an increased shortage of supply for commercial sites. In addition, commercial use is constantly competing with other uses. One alternative could be corporate real estate.


The data for corporate real estate in Germany is collected and progressively updated by the Initiative Unternehmensimmobilien, a co-operation of the largest actors in this segment. Deviations from the data status of previous years arise as a result of the improved data situation and the expansion of real estate research in this still-young asset category. The figures have been adjusted retroactively.
