- Urban Logistics and Multifunctional Space
In urban areas, the trend toward urban logistics solutions is gaining momentum. The adaptation of logistics real estate for use in urban environments and the integration of multifunctional space are being driven in response to the increasing demand for faster deliveries and local services.
- Flexibility and adaptability
Flexibility is becoming a critical factor in logistics real estate development. Real estate companies are seeking modular designs and adaptability to respond to changing user requirements. This enables faster scaling and better utilization of real estate.
- Logistik als Investmentklasse

In terms of logistics, Austria is a dynamically growing market in Europe. The geopolitical location in the center of Europe and with immediate proximity to the growth markets in Central and Eastern Europe holds a lot of potential for the development of modern logistics locations.
