Deutsche EuroShop’s key investment guidelines can be summarised as follows:
Deutsche EuroShop invests exclusively in shopping centers.
The minimum property size is 15,000 m². Office space or other non-commercial usage should not generate more than 15% of the total property income.
The locations should feature a catchment area of at least 300,000 inhabitants.
Shopping center projects are only purchased when an executable construction authorization can be produced and 40% of the leasable space is secured by long-term legally binding lease contracts.
Project developments without the right to build or that cannot facilitate pre-letting can be taken over as a joint venture. Project development costs may not exceed 5% in individual cases or 10% in total of the Deutsche EuroShop equity.
