MEC is further expanding its position as national market leader for retail parks. Its latest customer is the investment company CORESTATE Capital Investors (Europe), based in Frankfurt am Main and represented in eleven countries.

CORESTATE has commissioned MEC with the continuation of the center management of two retail parks in Northern Germany – the NordseePassage Wilhelmshaven and the Einkaufspark Duckwitz in Bremen. The full mandate for the two shopping centers comprises the one-stop support tailored to the requirements of asset management – Center Management, Commercial Property Management including Key Account Management, Technical Property Management and Leasing Management.

At the same time, the asset management company M&G Real Estate with its German headquarters in Frankfurt am Main has extended its mandate for Dreieich Nordpark.

“We are very pleased about the trust that our customers place in us with these mandates,” says Christian Schröder, Managing Director (COO) of MEC. “We see this trust both as a mandate and as an incentive to professionally manage the centers in our common interest and to develop them further in a sustainable manner. The Chief Operating Officer of MEC sees common values for business success such as security, sustainability and growth as the basis of the cooperation.
