BlueRock Group: Best Boutique Real Estate Investment Solutions DACH 2021


Since its 2011 launch, BlueRock Group has prioritised sustainability and applied due diligence to limit financial, technical, legal, and tax risks. The group has raised more than €300m in equity and invested €1.2bn in Germany. It is finalising two major projects: a large residential portfolio in Berlin and an office complex in Eschborn, just outside Frankfurt. Both present opportunities for institutional investors, wealth managers, family offices and high-net-worth individuals. BlueRock Group analyses real estate trends at the macro- and micro-economic level, then identifies promising opportunities. Berlin is an under-valued real estate market, with steady growth anticipated over coming decades. The firm negotiated a great deal in Berlin, securing an average price of €2,500/m2 — when the median runs more than double that. The competitive purchase prices and desirable locations make a strong case for capital protection. Asset sizes range from €3m to €10m. BlueRock Group plans to exit the portfolio in the third or fourth quarter of 2025. In the downside protection scenario, it would pursue unit-by-unit-sales over an eight-year term. BlueRock’s Eschborn portfolio features two recently renovated office buildings, with an occupancy rate of 85 percent and rental income upwards of €2m. Eschborn is a business-friendly city with lower tax rates than Frankfurt — which can be reached by rail in 15 minutes. The judging panel presents BlueRock Group with the 2021 award for Best Boutique Real Estate Investment Solutions (DACH).
