The floor space of modern logistics real estate (construction year ≥ 2008) in the Ruhr Metropolis amounted to some 3.0 m m² at the end of 2017.


The largest offer was found in Duisburg, with approximately 690,000 m², followed by the district of Unna with around 516,000 m² and the district of Wesel with approximately 440,000 m².


Against the background of the well-stocked project pipeline, the floor space in the Ruhr Metropolis should grow to some 4.7 m m² by the end of 2018. In 2018 the district of Recklinghausen will see a marked increase in modern stock due to its large volume of new construction.


In 2017 a total of around 750,000 m² FS of logistics real estate was completed in the Ruhr Metropolis, representing a new peak.


Amongst the finalised projects, the Amazon warehouse in Werne represented the largest volume, with logistics space of around 97,000 m² FS. Further large-volume completions were the Opel Plant 2 in Bochum with 95,700 m FS and the first construction stage of the Arvato logistics centre with approximately 59,000 m² FS at the Interkommunaler Industriepark Dorsten/Marl.


A glance at the well-filled project pipeline reveals that 2018 will also see a high volume achieved in the Ruhr Metropolis, with approximately 725,000 m² FS.

"A total investment of 913 m euros in 2017 positions the logistics segment as third most popular asset category."
