Logo AIF Development

We create space.

We have a passion for project development. Focussing on existing property, we raise the full upside potentials of office buildings, residential assets, senior care homes as well as of mixed-use district developments. Our expert team includes highly qualified constructional engineers, project developers and real estate economists. They regularly create value for our portfolio.

AIF Development is the project developer of AIF Capital Group. After completion, development projects are integrated into our long-term portfolio. For larger scale maintenance or refurbishment measures, AIF Development also takes over assets from our Portfolio. The deep experience from our own and co-investments help in adequately assessing the potentials of investment opportunities and developing new products for our clients.
