With approximately 700,000 square meters of lettable area and more than 200 tenants, including the top German food retailers Edeka and Rewe Group, Schwarz Group and Aldi, A&M Captiva is very familiar with the needs and challenges its tenants face on a day-to-day and strategic basis. Furthermore, A&M Captiva managed a substantial logistics and industrial portfolio with more than 660,000 square meters of lettable area.
