Light industrial has never been better


More than €2.6bn was invested in German corporate real estate and industrial parks this year through mid-November, according to Colliers International, as much as in the peak years of 2015 and 2016 combined. Colliers included the two recent large portfolio deals (Helaba/Beos and Beos/Aurelis) with a volume of over €1bn. Gross yields of 5.7% and a scarcity of products in other areas of commercial real estate are attracting an increasing number of core investors to the light industrial sector, according to Colliers. As the production base of German Mittelstand, the sector is perceived as a sustainable investment even by risk-averse investors.
