December 12, 2018: CORESTATE Capital Holding S.A. (CORESTATE), a leading European real estate investment manager, is expanding its Micro Living offering to include the fast-growing Co-Living segment. CORESTATE has entered into an exclusive partnership with the MEDICI LIVING Group, Europe's largest provider of innovative co-living concepts.
Under the QUARTERS brand, the MEDICI LIVING Group operates co-living spaces for creative people, young professionals and founders worldwide, including in New York, Amsterdam and Berlin. Its units offer users modern design, smart technology, spacious communal areas and regular events.
The cooperation plans to build a co-living portfolio worth EUR 1 billion across Europe within five years with investor money. As part of the cooperation, CORESTATE will identify, acquire and develop for its clients ideal sites and properties. The focus will be on cities in the German-speaking countries, Spain and Eastern Europe, with over 500,000 inhabitants and real estate with an investment volume of EUR 20 to 60 million. Several properties are already in the pipeline for the new product line. CORESTATE will benefit from its good market access and many years of experience in the micro living sector.
As part of the cooperation, MEDICI LIVING Group will prepare feasibility studies, support CORESTATE in property planning and design and fully assume operation. CORESTATE is securing long-term, high-growth revenue structures for itself and continuing to expand its market position in the trending area of "urban living."
"Together with MEDICI, we want to play a leading role in shaping the co-living market in Europe. Co-living properties optimally complement our current product range in the micro-living sector. It is a new, rapidly growing residential segment that covers millennials' rental requirements. They are looking to exchange ideas with like-minded people in a modern living space and experience community, no matter in which metropolis they are currently working. Our investors will also benefit from this trend. Through us, they have the opportunity to invest in a unique product range in the micro-living sector at European level," says Thomas Landschreiber, CIO and co-founder of CORESTATE.
Gunther Schmidt, founder and CEO of MEDICI LIVING Group, adds: "This partnership is the breakthrough for co-living in Europe". Gunther Schmidt sees even greater potential for the new asset class than for co-working. "The residential real estate market is much larger than that for office real estate," he adds. "We are building the WeWork of co-living and CORESTATE's investors can participate in it."
