We develop properties' potentials
The real estate company Aurelis was founded in 2002 and operates across the whole of Germany. The company's two main business areas comprise the upgrading, rental and management of its real estate portfolio (asset management) and the development of land and buildings (development). The company pursues an integrated process management approach along the real estate value chain. A significant aspect in this context is the capability of Aurelis to find a suitable concept for properties and land in any condition, upgrade such assets, and realize its own construction projects.
Asset management: optimizing and renting the real estate portfolio
As an asset manager, Aurelis analyses and manages its rental portfolio. Where required, properties are upgraded on a targeted basis through modernization, renovation, expansion of rental areas and tenant acquisition. At the same time, Aurelis renders services for its tenants – ranging from contract management and asset management through to maintenance and technical management. Tenant requirements and wishes form the focus of this business model. The portfolio comprises light industrial properties (business parks, properties for warehousing/logistics and light manufacturing), other commercial properties (administrative buildings, training centers and retail properties), properties for refurbishment or redevelopment, as well as open space.

Land development and building construction: turning brownfield sites into building land
As a developer, the company restores and develops unutilized industrial areas in order to finally sell parcels of land that are ready for construction with planning rights. If rental is sufficiently secured, Aurelis expands the value chain and carries out construction itself. The company decides according to strategic criteria and yield aspects as to whether properties are subsequently transferred to its own portfolio, or value is realized through disposal.

Reinvestments and acquisitions secure portfolio quality and growth
Aurelis reinvests revenues from sales and surpluses from rental income into the value enhancement and expansion of its real estate portfolio. This involves modernization, renovation and expansion of rental properties on the one hand, as well as targeted purchases on the other. The company buys commercial properties – mainly from the light industrial real estate area – or brownfield sites that can be developed into construction land.
