NEW RECORD FOR THE FIRST HALF OF THE YEAR
After a rather restrained first half-year in 2020 due to the pandemic, the Dortmund office market got off to an excellent start this year. The take-up of 74,000 m² is not only more than 150% higher year-on-year, but also about three quarters above the long-term average. It is therefore not surprising that a new all-time high was set, exceeding the previous record of 2016 by 48%. In a nationwide comparison, Dortmund can boast the largest percentage increase in take-up compared to the prior-year period. This development was driven in particular by Amprion GmbH, whose owner-occupier deal for 15,600 m² accounted for over 20% of take-up in the first half of the year. There was also a second major contract signed in Q2: the Dortmund police leased 6,000 m² at Dortmund Airport.
