The project is a portfolio of two beautiful, fully let turn of the century houses in Leipzig, the fastest growing city in Germany. The selected apartment buildings are located in sought-after locations in Leipzig (Leipzig-Südvorstadt and Leipzig-Gohlis) and comprise 29 rentable units with a usable space of 2,219 sqm. The properties are 100% let and generate € 152,832 in rental income per year (as of May 2019). Due to the low actual rents of the portfolio compared to the Leipzig average, there is an attractive development potential for new rentals. The buildings are constantly being maintained, so no major maintenance work is expected in the future.
For years Leipzig has been growing faster than any other German city. In recent years alone, Leipzig has grown by 10,000 to 12,000 inhabitants per year. In 2000, Leipzig had just under 490,000 inhabitants; today, more than 600,000 people call Leipzig their home. This population growth is due to the varied cultural landscape, the distinctive range of educational opportunities and the strong regional economic growth. International companies such as BMW, Porsche or Amazon have also recognised these positive developments and have settled large operating facilities and office complexes in Leipzig in recent years.
Consequently, this growth is also reflected in the rental prices of recent years. The entire rental market in Leipzig has been experiencing a sustained upward trend for years. Especially the rents for small residential units (as they are mainly found in the portfolio) up to 30m² and apartments with more than 100m² have risen significantly since 2011.
Since 2010, Leipzig has been one of the fastest growing cities in Germany and is experiencing an annual increase of around 10,000 people, which corresponds to annual growth rates of over 2%. Between 2012 and 2014, Leipzig was the fastest growing city in Germany and the actual development exceeded all forecasts. The growth is explained by the strong influx, the attractive labour market and the birth surplus in 2013 and 2014, which last occurred in 1965. In 2015, the population will increase by almost 16,000 and in 2016 by 10,000 inhabitants.
After the fall of the Berlin Wall, however, a number of large industrial settlements were also established, including Siemens (approx. 1700 employees), Porsche (approx. 2500 employees) and BMW (with partners and suppliers over 6500 employees at the Leipzig location). With the settlement of the latter two, the city was able to establish itself as a new automotive location. The entire Leipzig region is an important centre of the energy industry and Leipzig appears as the energy metropolis Leipzig. Leipzig operates the Energy and Environment Cluster and has a focus on economic development there.
In autumn 2006 Amazon completed its second and largest German logistics centre. In 2008, the European air hub of the postal freight subsidiary DHL, which was previously located in Brussels, went into operation. This has created 3500 jobs directly at the airport and around 7000 in the immediate vicinity.
Gohlis-Süd is a very special piece of Leipzig. If you walk along the old cobblestone pavement of Menckestraße, pass the Schillerhaus and see the Gohlis palace a few hundred metres away, you feel as if you are transported to a completely different time. Then you stroll through the old Gohlis of the 18th century and could almost imagine sitting with Schiller in the shadow of his house and sipping a 'Scheelchen Heeßen' together. Gohlis-Süd is located in the northern part of the city of Leipzig, on the western side connected to the city centre and its central districts by the park landscape of the Rosental with its zoological garden. Tram no. 4 travels to and through Gohlis, crossing the Parthe, which borders the small quarter in the south; tram lines 10 and 11 also run on Georg-Schumann-Straße. Shopping centres to stock up on daily necessities - the Gohlis Arkaden, for example - are close by.
With its magnificent old villas in Wilhelminian and Art Nouveau style and its surprising architectural extravagances in new modern garb, the quarter has an unmistakably upper middle-class character. It is not for nothing that the vernacular jokes 'If it's too good for you, you'll move to Gohlis'. The quarter is mainly used as a residential area and can be described by its pleasant peace and quiet. By the way, this metropolitan tranquility is mainly sought by singles and married couples. The average household size is a small 1.9 persons. The unemployment rate is low. The old centre of the district - the already mentioned Menckestraße - is always worth a walk and offers with its Schillerhaus and the Gohliser Schlösschen only two of many attractions of the district. A visit to the Gosenschenke with the telling subtitle 'Ohne Bedenken' (Without Concerns) is particularly recommended - in a cosy atmosphere, the typical Leipzig drink tastes particularly good. Those who prefer Mediterranean food will find a rich selection of special delicacies in the Restaurant Mytropolis
Leipzig Zoo is a 26-hectare (2.1 hectares of which are water) large park-like zoological garden on Rosental, northwest of Leipzig city centre. It is one of the most species-rich zoos in Europe. Since 2000, the zoo has been undergoing large-scale conversion and expansion under the project name "Zoo of the Future". Until 2022, a conversion in individual themed areas is planned. According to the Sheridan Zoo Ranking by the British Anthony Sheridan, Leipzig Zoo has been ranked second among the best zoos in Europe (after Schönbrunn Zoo) and first in Germany for several years.
