Industrial & Logistics

Our Approach

We are real estate entrepreneurs - active investors. In accordance with our holistic approach to asset management, we take charge of the entire investment process for our investors. 


In logistics, we have specialized teams on the ground who are currently focusing on expanding our investment portfolio through acquisitions and developments of industrial projects in Germany, Poland and Central- and Eastern Europe. We have extensive practical experience with the common fund and investment structures and their regulatory and administrative requirements, as well as with all stakeholders involved in the logistics space, ranging from land owners, developers, tenants and occupiers, to authorities. 

Business Goals

As active investors operating in the warehouse market, our goal is to build an industrial platform based on modern SBU (Small Business Units), Big Box and BTS (Built-to-Suit) facilities. We are regularly looking for attractive plots of land, which are suitable for the development of new warehouse projects. In addition, we are also interested in acquiring existing logistics parks and are open to cooperating with developers in the implementation of industrial projects.

Locations – our planned projects

We are open to engage with logistics-, transport-, and courier-companies, as well as with e-commerce and light production partners in order to develop industrial projects tailored to their needs across Germany, Poland, and in other CEE countries.
