BERLIN IS BOOMING – NEW TAKE-UP RECORD
The positive momentum in Berlin's logistics and warehouse market, which has been evident throughout the year, continued in impressive manner in the fourth quarter. With a take-up of 609,000 m² for the year as a whole, a clear new record was set, exceeding both the previous year's result and the ten-year average by more than 40 % respectively. This is due to a significant surge in demand in all market segments, which is also reflected in a very high number of deals reaching a new record level with around 150 registered contracts. As expected, demand was driven on the one hand by e-commerce companies, but increasingly also by demand from the last-mile logistics sector in the smaller and medium-sized space segment. In addition, first suppliers for TESLA also contributed to the positive development of demand. The most important leases signed include Lidl Digital International (30,300 m²) in Genshagen, Raben Group (27,000 m²) in Mittenwalde, Bergmann und Franz (25,000 m²) in Oberkrämer and Gestamp (20,500 m²) in Großbeeren.
