Owner of 40,300 homes valued at €6.6bn in Germany, Covivio is active in the most dynamic cities such as Berlin, Dresden, Hamburg, Leipzig and the Ruhr region. To contribute to the construction of new homes in these undersupplied markets, notably Berlin, Covivio has built up a €574m development pipeline. Most of these projects are being carried out on land and buildings that are already part of the portfolio, as is the case in Berlin Biesdorf, with the construction of 106 new flats.
Covivio develops, modernises, manages and enhances the value of housing that suits families, couples and different generations... in Germany's most attractive cities, this is Covivio's daily business. We are also active in France in the residential sector with several operations to convert offices into housing.
A residential activity undergoing changes
Meeting the need for housing in Germany
We are always attentive to our clients
“Present in Germany since 2005, Covivio is a recognised and trusted residential owner and developer. We put our assets on the move in the heart of the cities where we are present thanks to an active asset and property management policy. Acquisitions, disposals, works and developments enable us to create value and to always be attentive to our clients' needs in order to adapt our projects to their requirements.”
Transformation of offices into housing
Covivio is stepping up the pace in France on the conversion of offices into housing. In the heart of cities, close to transport and shops, while taking advantage of green spaces, this is where residential real estate takes on its full meaning. We have identified 150,000 sqm of potential projects in Greater Paris, Bordeaux, Nantes and Nice. Our objective? To transform office buildings owned by Covivio that have become obsolete into multi-use housing. Imagining and designing the housing of tomorrow, a major challenge in these markets where residential demand is strong.
Customer focus and housing with services
Committed and close to our customers
Services deployed in buildings simplify the daily life of occupants and enhance their well-being and performance. When we design services for a building, we have two objectives: to imagine them taking into account the services already available in the area, and to design them with our client so that they meet the real needs of the teams.
Changes in uses and coliving
Well-being, mixed-use and sharing approach also apply to the residential sector. Covivio is in direct contact with the new expectations of its customers and is testing new uses, such as intergenerational housing, senior residences and shared vegetable gardens in Bordeaux in a 46,500 sqm programme, and coliving in Berlin. For professionals on the move, students or short-term expatriates, coliving is a new way to live and experience the city: in a central and lively neighbourhood, you rent a private room in a fully-equipped flat where you share common areas with other residents. Not forgetting the services at your disposal (wifi, concierge, laundry…).
