Real Estate Developers 2020

Signals for slumping project volume

  • Total project developments in class A cities are stagnating (corona-independent)
  • Berlin decouples itself from the market again
  • Growth in the office segment high again, but below the 2019 level
  • Housing project developers bid farewell to the 7 class A cities

Despite a still significant increase in project areas in Investor Development (developments for own use), project areas are stagnating overall. With a manageable 1.1 percent growth, the total volume is 48.0 million sqm. One development significantly influences the results of the study: residential project developments are once again declining significantly. Only the office segment again offers volume growth on a remarkable scale. Trading developments (developments for resale) and investor developments are in some cases developing very differently.

About the Study "Real Estate Developers 2020

The independent analysis and consulting company bulwiengesa has for the 14th time examined the market for project developments in the seven German A-cities Berlin, Munich, Hamburg, Frankfurt/Main, Düsseldorf, Cologne and Stuttgart. On the basis of approx. 5,000 individual projects, the structure and volume of the project developer market was analyzed and evaluated city by city. The focus was on office, residential, retail and hotel uses. The complete study will be available at the beginning of April and can be pre-ordered from March 31.
