SECOND-BEST RESULT AFTER 2016 DESPITE CRISIS YEAR
The logistics market in the Ruhr region continues to demonstrate its high level of attractiveness in the crisis year of 2020 and achieves the second-best result ever recorded with a take-up of 669,000 m². Compared to the previous year and the long-term average, it recorded significant increases of 51 % and almost 36 % respectively, so that only the result from 2016 (915,000 m²) was even higher due to individual very large-volume deals. The belief in the market and the region - even in economically challenging times - is also underlined by the high volume in the new construction segment, which was able to expand its take-up share from the previous year with an increase of 69 %. Worthy of mention in this context is the major deal concluded by the retail company TEDI, which has already moved into parts of the logistics units totalling 78,000 m² in P3 Park Kamen in parallel with the construction work. This deal, as well as the new distribution centre being built for DSV in Duisburg harbour (54,000 m²) and the letting to DHL (39,000 m²) in Bergkamen, contributed to the average volume per deal being very high at almost 20,000 m².
