SIGNA Real Estate operates from eleven locations in Austria, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg and Switzerland. The gross asset value of the real estate group amounts to around 27 billion euros, and the additional gross development volume amounts to around 25 billion euros. SIGNA Real Estate is divided into four independent business segments:
SIGNA Prime Selection AG owns a portfolio of exclusive real estate properties in prime inner-city locations in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Northern Italy and the UK. The vast majority of these extraordinary real estate objects will remain in the hands of SIGNA Prime in the long term. The company continues to supplement its real estate investments with acquisitions and projects in top locations with significant value appreciation potential on an ongoing basis.
SIGNA Development Selection AG invests in development projects in major urban centres, primarily in the German-speaking region and Northern Italy. These include office blocks and towers, residential complexes, future-oriented retail spaces and hotels. The company pursues a “buy – develop – sell” strategy. In 2017, SIGNA Development Selection took over the Viennese property developer BAI Bauträger Austria Immobilien GmbH.
With a focus on New York City and other prime inner-city locations in the US and a mixture of different utilisation types focused on sustainability, SIGNA RFR US Selection AG will acquire trophy assets with value enhancement potential in unique locations. The long-term buy-and-hold strategy will result in a core portfolio similar to SIGNA Prime.
SIGNA Luxury Hotels sets the highest standards in the conception, development and marketing of unique destinations in Central Europe’s most beautiful locations and operates impressive luxury hotels and resorts, with a portfolio that includes Chalet N in Lech am Arlberg, the Park Hyatt Vienna, the Villa Eden luxury resort on Lake Garda as well as the exclusive Hotel Bauer Palazzo in the heart of Venice.
