MEC will rent 172,000m2 of total space in 2023

• Over 258 new and follow-up rental agreements concluded at retail locations
• Increase in rental volume compared to the previous year
• Early and close coordination with clients pays off

MEC has achieved a new rental record: The retail real estate specialist and national market leader for the operation of specialist retail centers was able to conclude over 258 new and follow-up rental agreements with a total area of 172,000m² in the past financial year. MEC thus increased its rental performance again compared to the already strong previous year. Because in 2022 it was 158,000m2. The contractual partners include Deichmann, KIK, Woolworth, Modepark Röther, Kaufland, Müller Drugstore, Roller, Bonita, Media Markt, TUI, Takko, Media Markt and Porta.

MEC ensures that the Dreieich Nordpark is fully rented
The leasing team was able to successfully complete the new tenant concept in Dreieich Nordpark last year as part of the extensive refurbishment by MEC. Over the course of the first half of 2024, the local supply center will not only have a new design, but also through intelligent space optimization with additional retailers and thus an expanded offering. Concepts from the food discount, drugstore and household goods sectors ideally complement the tenant and industry mix in the new Drei-eich Nordpark. This was made possible because the new anchor tenant Kauf-land did not take over the entire area of the previous Real hypermarket and the sporting goods retailer Decathlon uses a smaller sales area as part of an area optimization.

Goal- and solution-oriented collaboration as a success factor
“We would like to thank our tenants for their trust in our locations and our clients for their trust in our rental expertise,” says Christian Thiele, Head of Leasing Management at MEC. Thiele sees the team's way of working as a success factor: "We achieved this strong performance due to the interdisciplinary cooperation within the MEC as well as the close and early coordination with our clients," says Thiele. He also gives an outlook for 2024: “For this year, the tenant-side realignment of the Saarbasar in Saarbrücken is on our agenda. We look forward to discussions with existing tenants and prospective tenants.”
