Real Estate Group

Shared strength is the goal. Years of experience are the basis.

EUROPA-CENTER Logistikimmobilien is responsible within the real estate group for project development and the continued growth of the national and international logistics real estate business.

In contrast, the focus of EUROPA-CENTER AG, as the portfolio holder and project developer, is on the group’s office and commercial buildings, hotels and business accommodation, as well as the further expansion of these market segments. It is a clear division of tasks and specialisation that brings significant advantages.

With almost 50 years of experience as an established asset manager that knows its properties inside out through all phases of project development, construction and management, EUROPA-CENTER AG is a sought-after address throughout Germany. A team of specialists and real estate professionals not only delivers highly attractive addresses, but also stands for know-how, reliability and long-term tenant loyalty.

The real estate group is complemented by EUROPA-CENTER Holding Immobiliario Iberia S.L.U., based in Sant Cugat, Barcelona, Spain. The unit there carries out (as of 2021) the construction of office properties and hotels in the country’s strongest economic location, in the direct catchment area of Barcelona.

Uwe Heinrich Suhr Stiftung

As a company belonging to the real estate group of the same name, EUROPA-CENTER Logistikimmobilien is chiefly financed by the family of Ingeborg and Uwe Heinrich Suhr that owns it. The family transferred parts of its activities and investments to a charitable non-profit foundation model in 1999.

The EUROPA-CENTER Uwe Heinrich Suhr Foundation was established as a company-affiliated foundation. It is based on the fundamental idea of continuing the founder’s life’s work, the EUROPA-CENTER Real Estate Group, in the long term and to pursue the charitable purposes provided for in its statutes with the income generated. Currently, the Suhr family still owns a substantial part of the shares in EUROPA-CENTER AG (Holding). However, these will be successively transferred to the two charitable foundations, EUROPA-CENTER Uwe Heinrich Suhr Foundation and Ingeborg Suhr Foundation.

In the future, the two non-profit foundations will secure and continue the affairs of the EUROPA-CENTER Real Estate Group and the companies belonging to it via their holding company.

Building means taking on great responsibility – in terms of urban design, landscaping, ecology, society and the economy. These challenges have to be rebalanced daily. That is why fair and reliable cooperation is the fundamental basis of our business activities. This applies to our internal cooperation in diversified teams as well as to our external service providers: in construction as well as in technology, agencies, consultancies and estate agencies, banks and law firms as well as towards our investors and buyers.
