The growth region Ruhr Metropolis

at the international real estate fair

“The Ruhr Metropolis has finally emerged from the shadow of the Rhineland as far as investors are concerned. The presence of six towns and cities and their mayors at the MIPIM and an investment volume that recently topped 3.5 billion euros show that we are capable of continuing to build on our success,” stated Rasmus C. Beck, Managing Director (Chairman) of Business Metropole Ruhr GmbH (BMR).

A residential and commercial centre on 1,700 hectares at the heart of Germany’s largest conurbation, a new urban quarter for start-ups at Europe’s biggest canal port and living and working on 60 hectares of the best waterfront. These and further exciting projects are being jointly presented by the mayors of Bochum, Dortmund, Duisburg, Essen and Herne at the international MIPIM real estate exhibition in Cannes from 12 to 16 March. The BMR organised the joint presence in Cannes for the Ruhr Metropolis.

This year, for the 30th time MIPIM connects investors, cities, brokers or city planners from all over the world. Since 1990, the trade fair has continued to grow, not least because the real estate business has not only become a strong economic factor, but also because it is central to urban development. This year, more than 26,000 representatives from companies and politics from all over the world registered. Some 500 journalists will report on the four-day event, especially on the projects presented here.
