HIGH DEMAND, BUT HARDLY ANY AVAILABLE SPACE IN THE CITY
Osnabrück is and remains the heart of the region and the city centre is an attraction for shoppers from near and far. This is illustrated by the third highest centrality indicator (1.52) in the comparison of 27 cities. Footfall in Großen Straße is slightly lower than in the previous year and, with over 4,200 visitors, is in the midfield of comparable consumer locations in cities with 100,000 to 250,000 inhabitants. This is also where the highest rent is obtained, which runs up to 130 €/m² as in the previous year. Among cities of the same size only Würzburg exceeds this peak value (135 €/m²). It is therefore hardly surprising that the comparatively high rental rate is mainly due to the fact that branches of well-known national and international retailers are represented there. Große Straße is particularly dominated by the retail sector, which recorded two new leases with a Tchibo branch and the fashion chain Gina Laura. Food and beverage concepts, on the other hand, can only be found in some A-locations, such as the Nikolaiort with several fast-food outlets and chain restaurants or the Markthalle, the food court in the L+T department store. Otherwise, they are mainly to be found in secondary locations in the city centre.
