    From location to destination

    Every property development needs a solution tailored to the specific market situation. During initial discussions, we explore the context and priorities for the project. We offer two tried and tested work modules for the development of a long-term roadmap for the systematic development of a profitable retail destination:

    Assessment of potential

    • A kick-off workshop with an assessment of the current situation, discussion of the market and strategy – with a group of your employees and experts of Drees & Sommer and Brümmer & Heine.
    • Assessment and idea development with solution scenarios, cooperation ideas, and concepts for differentiation and development.
    • Workshop with presentation, discussion and prioritization of possible development options, elements and/or partners. We jointly define a development vision and any constraining and critical factors.


    As a leading European consulting, planning and project management company, Drees & Sommer has supported building owners and investors for almost 50 years in all questions related to real estate and infrastructure, both digitally and in analog form. The partner-managed company provides all of its services with the goal of combining economic viability and ecology.
