A property developers are active in several German cities and in some cases internationally. Some of the developed projects have a volume >100M€.

This ranges from residential and office to hotels, retail and healthcare properties.

Optimal list for property sales, lead generation, market research and land sales

With our uniquely comprehensive property developer database, we support customers from various industries. Real estate agents and property owners use the list to sell plots and properties. Real estate project developers are always interested in buildings with development potential and land. Development potential for such developers arises in various situations: dilapidation, additional buildable area, revaluation, need for renovation, etc. Plots of land are always relevant for new projects. In addition, our list is a helpful starting point for lead generation for brokers, building suppliers, internet companies, advertising agencies and other interested parties.

Development focus of property developers in Germany: residential real estate

More than 800 of the top 1000 project developers are active in the residential property sector, among others. Different types of buildings are developed for different occasions: condominiums for sale, residential complexes for global sale to institutional investors, memorial buildings, micro apartments, etc. In most cases the project developers are specialized in certain areas. This can be the purchase of apartment buildings with a need of renovation. These are then developed into high-quality condominiums and resold to private individuals. Other property developers purchase plots of land, demolish the remaining building stock and resell the newly created properties as a whole.

Development focus of project developers in Germany: Office properties

The second most common asset class for project developers is office properties. Here, too, there are different characteristics. Some real estate developers are building office skyscrapers in Frankfurt’s banking metropolis, while others are building office parks in rural areas. Buildings in other asset classes are also frequently purchased and then restructured and developed into office properties. The transaction types vary: sometimes properties are resold as part of a global sale, but in other cases they are simply held in the company’s standing portfolio.

We present some of the property developers from our list and their exact focus as well as individual projects.

The company is 75 percent committed to residential projects and attempts the rest to office properties and business hotels accounting. The investment volume per project is at least EUR 25 million, although the company works also with external investors (family offices, institutional investors, private investors).

The Alpha Tower in Graz is one of the successfully completed 6B47 projects. Therefore, a former student residence in high-rise form was converted into 77 apartments. A German flagship project is the Cascada skyscraper in Frankfurt’s Europaviertel with 191 apartments – successfully sold in 2016.

  1. Steven H.

    Awesome dataset for asset managers like me. Good job

  2. Anonymous

    2nd list we purchased from the ResearchGermany team. Same feedback: Great contacts and I am pretty sure we will source some investment opportunities through the list. But: I miss some information like “Mio. $ of realized projects”. For this, I would be willing to pay even more.

    –> 4/5!

  3. Julian Long (verified owner)

    I received very swift response to my initial enquiries about the products and since purchase have found the lists to be extremely useful. As we work extensively across Germany (and Europe) having detailed lists of companies that we can then target as possible clients is really important. ResearchGermany have been able to provide this detail and we are very happy to recommend them to others.
