With almost 493,000 m² of warehouse and logistics space used, a new record was set in 2019 (previously 456,000 m² in 2015). The two largest leases were areas of 31,000 m2 and 16,800 m2. However, most leases are for spaces between 1,000 and 5,000 m2, accounting for 59% of the total sales. The south of Berlin aroused great interest with around 56% of total sales.
