For the second half-year of 2018, not only additional M1 Med Beauty locations, but also further specialist centres for aesthetic dental treatments under the new brand “M1 Dental” are planned. In addition, M1 is targeting its internationalisation. The first international location is to be opened in Vienna in the second half of 2018.
CR Capital Real Estate AG, which focuses on project developments in the residential and health care real estate sectors, has successfully continued its current construction project “Halle Gardens” in Schkeuditz/Leipzig. The first residential units were handed over to the new owners in April. The complete handover of the first construction phase with 96 residential units is to take place until autumn 2018. Due to the high demand, CR has already acquired further adjacent areas and is planning further new buildings there.
