Apartment operator’s European portfolio grows by 800 units in Q1 2024

MUNICH – limehome, the leading technology-based operator of design apartments in Europe, grew its portfolio by almost 14 percent in the first quarter of 2024. By the end of March, the company signed a total of 800 new apartments, bringing limehome’s total European portfolio to 6,800 apartments. The majority of new leases are located in Austria, Portugal, Spain, and Italy, emphasizing the company’s status as one of the fastest growing hospitality operators in Europe.

limehome’s international growth has been driven by signings in already-established destinations such as Valéncia, Porto, and Amsterdam. Domestically, recurring follow-up deals from current partnerships have been a prevalent theme, as exemplified by developments in Kiel and Berlin. Projects building on successful partnerships have contributed considerably to limehome’s portfolio pipeline over the past year, as many owners and managers in the real estate industry are seeking reliable, high-yield options for their assets in the current market environment.

Recurring partnerships certify limehome’s growing reputation

In Schleswig-Holstein’s capital, Kiel, limehome has secured a lease for 70 units in a mixed-use building in Holstenstraße, centrally located in the city’s old town. The apartments are expected to be available in late 2025 following refurbishment. Expanding on a partnership that established one of limehome’s flagship properties in Berlin, the company will increase its footprint in the up-and-coming district Wedding. In Müllerstraße, limehome will expand its offering to more than 100 apartments. The new units are expected to be operational by the end of this year.

Dating back to the 17th century, this historic gem has undergone meticulous restoration to preserve its iconic features, offering 33 exquisite apartments.
