“Berlin is for me one of the most fascinating cities in the world because it embodies the freedom and challenge of our time.”
– Nicolas Berggruen
Berggruen Holdings Gmbh is an independent, owner-managed real estate investment company. We buy, renovate, modernize and rent residential, office and commercial properties in Berlin.
Our goal is to build a long-term real estate portfolio of diverse buildings that have character. For us, real estate is more than just an investment. We are interested in architecture, aesthetics and art as well as cash flow.
Nicolas Berggruen founded the company in October 2005 together with Samuel Czarny, who heads day-to-day operations from an office in Berlin-Charlottenburg. Since then, around 450 million euros have been invested in the acquisition and renovation of around 100 properties with a total of around 300,000 square meters of building space in Berlin and Potsdam.
The properties include apartment buildings as well as 17 partially listed industrial estates and outstanding special properties, such as the Cafe Moscow. The main interest is in buildings with unique character in locations with development potential.
