Real Estate Development Market in the Berlin-Potsdam Metropolitan Region Dominated by Residential Property



Property Development in Berlin
The property development market in Berlin and Potsdam is dominated by residential developments for the second consecutive year: A study compiled by BulwienGesa for Hochtief and TLG for the period of 2009 to 2016 claims 56.5% of the projects currently under construction or in the planning stage in the Berlin-Potsdam region are Residential Properties (3.5mn sqm). This is an increase of about 1mn sqm over the previous year. The entire project development volume in Berlin and Potsdam from 2009 to 2016 would thus be around 6.2mn sqm, or 12.5% more than in lst years study for the report period.
The total investment volume climbed by a further €2.3bn, to €18.3bn. This increase, however, is exclusively due to the residential sector: there were significant declines for retail (-132,000 sqm, down to 618,000 sqm) and hotel projects (-115,000 sqm, down to 700,000 sqm). Office developments fell back slightly by 12,000 sqm, dropping to 1mn sqm. Due to the lack of big deals in the commercial sector the volume shrank by €2.2bn.
The German version of the full study including data and graphs is available for download on www.berlin-portfolio.com.
