Over the past 8 months, we have continued to see a strong performance across our convenience real estate portfolio, which has seen further expansion from retail parks into urban logistics, multi-let light industrial and self storage opportunities.
Here’s our year to date in numbers…
5 new investments
An additional 5 investments have been closed so far this year committing €55 million of equity. These new investments are a mix of value-add projects and new developments, and include 2 new joint ventures with local operating partners in Belgium and Slovakia.
2 development projects completed
The past 8 months have seen the opening of 2 new developments located in Giurgiu, Romania, and Gembloux, Belgium, representing a total of more than 24,000m2 gross leasable area (GLA).
20 projects under development
At present, we have 20 development or redevelopment projects underway with a total GLA of 360,000m2 scheduled to open in 2023-24, comprising a mix of retail parks, urban logistics, multi-let light industrial and self storage projects.
€168 million capital raised
Despite the tougher economic climate, in July we completed the 3rd closing of our third flagship fund, MEREP 3, increasing the total capital raised to €168 million. By keeping dry powder during volatile times, we continue to see significant opportunities to make off-market acquisitions of both properties and portfolios on attractive terms.

Over the past decade, Mitiska REIM has invested €1.3 billion in a total of 93 convenience real estate properties with a total GLA of 1,100,000m2 across our 10 European markets of Belgium, The Netherlands, France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Romania, Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia.
