Established in 2007, the company has built an impressive real estate portfolio of 155 assets, including 14 in Greater Berlin. The portfolio represents a total investment volume of currently around 685 mn euros. Centerscape’s team of 60 focuses on the further growth of the company, acquiring up-market retail properties in Germany, Poland, and the Czech Republic. Properties in prime retail locations and at busy road junctions, retail buildings and ground floor retail units occupied by fashion retailers, pharmacies, organic supermarkets, banks, and restaurants, among others, are all part of the company’s investment profile.
