Why invest in properties throughout Africa?

The African continent is still mostly untapped in terms of commercial, retail, industrial property and specialist developments and investment returns. There are several drivers that offer exciting opportunities.

These drivers include:

  • The largely young population of the continent
  • Rapid urbanisation across Africa
  • Emerging economies
  • Technology advancements in real estate
  • Private capital plays an integral role in growing the sector
  • Continued industrialisation
  • Shortages in infrastructure provide for construction and development opportunities.
  • Limited supply for commercial and industrial space, giving rise to competition for these spaces and, therefore, a growing multi-national tenant market with subsequent high returns on property development.

No project is too big or challenging

GREA offers the expertise, resources and project management services to help international or multinational corporations construct commercial, industrial or retail properties in selected cities throughout Africa.
