ABOVE AVERAGE THIRD QUARTER
The Cologne logistics market had a restrained start to the year and was unable to pick up momentum in the second quarter. The sharp rise in demand for warehouse space, particularly by retail companies and logistics firms, which was registered in many regions during the lockdown did not occur in the Cologne market area.

This above-average quarterly result has pushed take-up to a current 102,000 m² (including owner-occupiers). This exceeded the previous year's result by 16 %.
