Our goals: New concepts for city centres
Inner cities require new concepts – bridges – to overcome the clefts between history and future.
Our objective is the integral development and realisation of value-preserving retail properties – the unrivalled tangible foundation of urban life.
We detect the unique character of each city and integrate the real-estate project carefully into the overall cityscape. Always with the objective of offering something unique, something that turns the city into a brand, and strengthens its position in the future competition between cities.
Carrier of urbanity in the course of time
While for decades retail was almost the only carrier of urbanity, the beginning of online sales, experts call the year 2014, heralded a turning point for urban development.
The corona era has made this even clearer and more visible: With the relocation of the local in-stores sales to the Internet, the desertification of inner cities began. However, this also made clear that this shift to the Internet, accelerated by the corona season, was not the actual reason for the desertification of the inner cities, but only the trigger. The real reason for desertification is the elimination of diversity in our inner cities. And this development began already in the 60s. How? By a silent relocation of countless usage modules, such as housing, leisure, schools, cultural institutions, service workplaces, etc. out of the inner city center.
The so-called "de-diversity" of the inner cities ultimately led to their desertification.
The insight from this development is that one must actually be grateful to online retail, because this has revealed the real mishap of development in our inner cities and we are now all called upon to work on the actual causes.
Diversity must return to the inner cities: housing, gastronomy, cultural institutions, schools - because trade alone is no longer a carrier of urbanity.
Our values or: what do we consider essential
The essential factor of our activities are people. For us, people are always at the centre of what we do. Because only we people determine how life for us will develop in the centres of our cities.
MESA creates values for people, for citizens, for cities. What is essential for us is to create sustainable values by way of attractive real-estate projects, which offer added value to us all – consumers, investors, the city and its citizens.
MESA – We create sustainable values for the people.
