Turnover record

Turnover in the commercial real estate investment market of the Ruhr Metropolis reached a new record level in 2017, at approximately 3.5 billion euros. This places the Ruhr Metropolis clearly ahead of the A locations Düsseldorf (2.4 billion euros), Cologne (2.15 billion euros) and Stuttgart (2.0 billion euros).

 

In many A cities the shortage of suitable investment products in central locations continued to make itself felt. In addition, investors are increasingly shifting their focus to B and C locations, which display a more attractive risk/return profile.

The most popular asset category of the past investment year was retail real estate, accounting for around 1.22 billion euros, approximately 35.0 % of the total volume. The sale of the Forum City Mülheim to Commerz Real and the Rhein-Ruhr-Zentrum to a Morgan Stanley fund accounted for around 420 m euros on their own.

 

In office real estate a total of some 1.21 billion euros or 34.7 % was invested, followed by logistics and production real estate, at around 913 m euros, or 26.0 % of the investment volume.

"With 3.5 billion euros, turnover in the commercial real estate investment market of the Ruhr Metropolis reached a new record level in 2017."
