Cologne-Ehrenfeld is a district northwest of the centre of Cologne, which still belongs to the inner city areas and is characterised by a colourful mix of residential and commercial buildings. There are also still many gaps between buildings and wasteland. The former workers’ and industrial quarter presents itself today in a diverse way with a lively cultural scene and is one of the hippest residential areas in Cologne. The Düsseldorf real estate investor Alfons & Alfreda has now acquired a vacant site here to realise an office campus. Nothing is known about the purchase price.

Neighbourhood development with office use as a focal point
The 15,800 square metre site is located on Widdersdorfer Strasse – a central traffic axis with mixed development that adjoins the Ehrenfeld district centre to the west. The site was previously owned by the Hess Group, a Cologne-based family business that has been in existence for almost a hundred years and trades in car and engine parts and other technical components. A district development is planned on the site – mainly with office space, supplemented by areas for gastronomy, retail, leisure and fitness. The project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2025.
The Düsseldorf-based Alfons & Alfreda Management GmbH is still a young company and was only founded in 2018. The focus as a project developer is on opportunistic investments in German metropolitan regions, preferably in good micro-locations with the corresponding local supply infrastructure. Developed and undeveloped plots of land of 3,000 square metres and more are acquired for new development and redevelopment. Alfons & Alfreda is also involved as a portfolio buyer – both in residential and commercial projects. Another important project is the development of an office campus at the new Berlin airport BER on a 35,000 square meter site.
