2nd Project Development Study Ruhr 2022

Building on the first project development study for the Ruhr region in 2020, the new edition will follow this year.

The Project Developer Study Ruhr 2022 analyses the project developer market in all independent cities and districts of the Ruhr region. On the basis of around 2,000 individual projects, the structure and volume of the project development market was analysed and evaluated by sub-area. The asset classes office, residential, retail, hotel as well as logistics and commercial were considered.

The most important results: Across all real estate segments, the total project development volume adds up to 11.8 million sqm. This makes the Ruhr region comparable with the A-cities Munich and Hamburg in terms of construction volume. Around half of the volume is in the four largest cities: Bochum, Duisburg, Dortmund and Essen alone account for 69.6% of all office space and 51.3% of all residential space in the Ruhr region.

Overview of project development volume:

  • Residential 4.2 m sqm
  • Office 2.4 m sqm
  • Retail 0.7 m sqm
  • Hotel 0.2 million sqm
  • Logistics/commercial 3.4 million sqm

The study contains detailed evaluations for the individual cities and districts as well as rankings of the largest project developers per segment.
