Consus operates a fully integrated development platform through its subsidiaries CG Gruppe AG and SSN Group AG covering the entire value chain. The most important components of the value chain are the sourcing and acquisition of land plots and real estate properties, their development and the sale of development projects to institutional purchasers through forward sales. Approximately 80% of Consus’ GDV are planned to be or are already forward sold. The strategic objective of Consus is to develop residential projects, which currently account for over 60% of the development portfolio. Consus typically develops integrated residential and commercial projects (Quartiere), thereby focussing on the development of modern, urban and affordable residential real estate properties that are supplemented by commercial spaces, including retail, hotels and offices.
“With our GDV of approximately EUR 10bn, we are well positioned to provide the market with urgently needed residential and commercial real estate properties.
