The companyThe Liegenschaftsfonds Berlin – an innovative property agent
The Liegenschaftsfonds Berlin was founded in 2001, as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the State of Berlin, to ensure the transparent sale of state properties. Since then, around 3,000 sales contracts for 6.8 million square metres have been concluded for a total price of 1.2 billion euros.
Around 120 employees keep records of, evaluate, manage and market over 5,000 state-owned properties in Berlin. Our portfolio comprises almost every kind of real estate imaginable: commercial, mixed, industrial, residential, special-use and niche properties for both private purchasers and project developers.
We often have real estate which plays a very special role in the German capital. One such property is the Senate guest house in the Grunewald, which was converted into the residence of the South Korean ambassador. The erstwhile Metropol Theatre on Friedrichstrasse in the district of Mitte has, meanwhile, been transformed into the Admiralspalast.
The Liegenschaftsfonds Berlin is the main point of contact for all property investors. Other Berlin agents cannot compete with the Liegenschaftsfonds’ expertise in special-use properties and unusual customer requirements, commission-free sales straight from the owner, direct contact with politicians and the authorities and support for the development of viable utilisation concepts.Die Liegenschaftsfonds Berlin Projektgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG
On 11 November 2004, the Berlin government passed a resolution which set out a new concept for the Liegenschaftsfonds Berlin and defined the responsibilities of the Liegenschaftsfonds Projekt KG more precisely. The company is charged with the qualification of properties, including the provision of support to the Berlin district authorities in the attainment of investor-related planning permission.
The objective here is to help the State of Berlin to implement its urban development and economic policy concepts.
The Liegenschaftsfonds was also commissioned with the development of planning and utilisation concepts for state-owned properties, so as to provide a sound basis for their successful marketing.
Qualification is carried out for properties belonging to the State of Berlin (agency) as well as those properties which have already been placed within our trust.
In the case of the latter, the qualification measures serve only as preparation for the marketing of selected pieces of real estate, oriented towards a concrete market interest.
