3. Aurelis Real Estate GmbH (Eschborn, Germany)

Aurelis is a German real estate investor and project developer. The company’s focus is on value-add or manage-to-core real estate and specifically the purchase of industrial parks, warehouses, factory sites and brownfields, which are then renovated. Aurelis is looking for properties with a size of 15,000 m² or more, which can be developed or undeveloped and have a volume of 5 million euros or more. In addition to asset deals and individual or portfolio transactions, the company also offers sale-and-leaseback.
