MEC schafft Planungssicherheit für Weiter-entwicklung des Bethanien Centers

• The Düsseldorf retail property specialist is conducting the land use plan procedure for its client Union Investment to adopt a statutory resolution
• Among other things, the Bethanien Center is to receive a comprehensive offer for e-mobility

Planning security for the Bethanien Center in Neubrandenburg. MEC, the retail property specialist and national market leader for the operation of retail parks, as the owner representative of its customer Union Investment, has brought about a resolution on the statutes of the city of Neubrandenburg's development plan. This serves to secure the commercial location in terms of planning law and also secures the owner's investment in the long term.

With the statute resolution on B-Plan No. 10 "Bethanienberg" now passed by the Neubrandenburg City Council, a clear framework for action is available for the future further development of the 44,000 square meter retail location. A Globus hypermarket was acquired as a new anchor tenant last year. A clear framework has been set for further modernization of the retail location and the associated changes in the tenant structure. In addition, the fitting out of the shopping center with an extensive, modern charging infrastructure for e-mobility is to be promoted in the coming months.

The Bethanien Center has 41 shops and has a catchment area of over 200,000 inhabitants. With the development planning process, which is closely monitored by the MEC, through to the final resolution in the articles of association, the location will continue to be an essential part of the local retail landscape in the future. A clear guarantee of value for Union Investment. "We are very pleased about the received resolution on the planning law to secure the Bethanien Center retail location. Our thanks go to the MEC, who did a fantastic job on our behalf to bring this milestone to the finish line after many years. With this result, we have planning security and sufficient flexibility for the future, which the dynamic retail market ultimately also needs," says Ralf Schaffuss, Head of Asset Management Retail Germany at Union Investment.
