One of the most popular shopping streets

Westenhellweg in Dortmund is one of the ten most frequented shopping streets in Germany – and has been for several years. By upgrading the quality of stay in the adjacent areas (Kampstraße and Netanya Square) by the City of Dortmund, a pleasant shopping experience will also be ensured in the future.

Identifying potential

With this investment, Art-Invest Real Estate strengthens its managed fund, which focuses on investments in inner-city retail properties. Due to the Corso-Passage, which runs through the entire building, the property has enormous potential for value creation. The use of retail, gastronomy, office, medical practices and apartments guarantee a diverse and sustainable mix.

Historical all along the line

The name Hellweg is translated as light and wide path. In Dortmund this is a more than 5,000 year old street from pre-Roman Germanic times. Hellweg was already the most important street in Dortmund at that time and led from the historic east gate to the west gate.
