Engel & Völkers Digital Invest launches strategic cooperation with DFI Real Estate and raises more than eight million euros for sustainable logistics properties

  • Strategic cooperation with DFI Real Estate for sustainable logistics real estate
  • Successful funding of the project “DFI Zukunftspark Oberrhein” in the amount of six million euros
  • More than two million euros already raised for the project “DFI Zukunftspark Nordbayern” project
  • Further sustainable logistics projects planned due to high investor interest

Berlin, 9 September 2022. EV Digital Invest AG (ISIN: DE000A3DD6W5), operator of the online real estate investment platform “Engel & Völkers Digital Invest”, has successfully started a strategic cooperation with DFI Real Estate, thus gaining access to the future market of sustainable logistics projects. DFI Real Estate specializes in innovative and sustainable industrial, commercial and logistics properties. The focus is particularly on efficient energy concepts and smart buildings in order to counteract the increasing cost pressure of the users and at the same time to meet the environmental goals. All aspects are combined in architecturally sophisticated properties with well thought-out traffic concepts, which are coordinated with municipalities and communities according to their needs.

The market for logistics real estate in Germany has developed dynamically in recent years, driven in particular by increasing excess demand. Given the current macroeconomic challenges, unstable supply chains and logistics bottlenecks can jeopardize security of supply. Therefore, the further expansion of critical infrastructure, such as logistics space, is a key driver for Germany as a location factor and will provide further impetus for the logistics real estate asset class.

Engel & Völkers Digital Invest has completed the financing of the first logistics project and collected around six million euros for the “DFI Zukunftspark Oberrhein”. The capital provided by investors will be used for the construction of a new state-of-the-art logistics park. The logistics park will be realised with an innovative architectural and sustainability concept. The project is one of the largest real estate investments financed via the platform to date. It underlines the attractiveness of sustainable real estate investments and marks the entry into the fast-growing logistics segment.

Marc Laubenheimer, Co-CEO of the company: “The successful funding of the first ‘DFI Zukunftspark’ marks a milestone. With our strategic cooperation with DFI Real Estate, we are expanding our investment focus and tapping into a growth segment. With this step, we are offering our investors attractive investment properties in an exciting and at the same time forward-looking market. Investors can already invest in the next sustainable logistics project on our platform – the ‘DFI Zukunftspark Nordbayern’. Here, too, we are experiencing high demand.”

The “DFI Zukunftspark Oberrrhein”, which has already been successfully financed, is to comprise a usable area of around 27,000 square meters. The financing period runs for about 24 months with a fixed annual interest rate for investors of 5.8 per cent. According to current planning, a global sale is planned as the exit. The total investment costs of the project are around 47 million euros.

The “DFI Zukunftspark Oberbayern” with a planned floor space of approximately 32,300 square meters has a financing volume of just under three million euros. The project is already more than 85 percent financed and the funding is expected to be completed in the next few days. Over a financing period of 16 months, the annual interest rate is 5.8 percent. The total investment costs for the project amount to approximately 33 million euros.
