Finding locations

Find out about our location information systems, regional ("gisTRA®") or euregional ("The Locator"), the commercial properties and real estate currently available, as well as many other useful information!

You are looking for a location for your company or want to expand your existing location?

gisTRA®, the commercial property information system of the Technology Region Aachen, offers you free and unrestricted access to daily updated and plot-by-lot information on all available commercial properties in the region! All industrial sites are freely searchable according to individual site characteristics and geographical location. Clearly arranged, downloadable property exposés provide information on size and location, transport connections, planning law, property prices and responsible contact persons in the towns and municipalities.

In addition, "The Locator“ as a multifunctional business location information system for the Euregio Meuse-Rhine (Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands) creates transparency across national borders.

In addition, the economic development agency NRW.Global Business developed the internet platform "GERMAN.SITE" to provide information about locations in North Rhine-Westphalia.

The publication "Location in Focus" not only creates transparency on the commercial property market at the level of the districts belonging to the region and its municipalities, it also provides insights into commercial real estate demand and picks up on important trends relating to commercial location development.

The "Location in Focus" report, which has been expanded in terms of content and subject matter since 2018, replaces the "Regional Commercial Property Monitoring" published in 2003, which aimed to systematically and continuously monitor the commercial property stock, developments and sales. This created greater transparency in the commercial space market in the region and enabled improved forecasting, planning, development and marketing of commercial space.

This publication is only published in German.

As a regional service provider, we advise and support municipalities and companies in the Aachen region. In particular, we are available as a contact partner for the development and marketing of commercial sites.

Depending on the requirements, we compile the necessary information individually, create analyses and concepts and, if necessary, involve suitable regional partners.

Our services for municipalities, companies and the regional economic structure:

Studies & short expert reports

We prepare fact-based and informative analyses that help our clients to make the right decisions on strategic implementation measures. On the basis of socio-economic key figures, the data from our commercial space information system gisTRA®, but also on the basis of official statistics and company databases, we derive concrete conclusions and recommendations for action for locations or municipalities.

  • Economic & socio-economic profile
  • Commercial utilisation status
  • Property sales
  • Business structure
  • Recommendations for action  

Workshops & support services

With our expertise, we support municipalities in an iterative and joint process, in the development of a transparent and objective land allocation procedure, to actively steer the settlement of companies. We also support municipalities in applying for subsidies and in developing economically and ecologically sustainable land development and marketing concepts.

  • Land allocation criteria
  • Applications for funding
  • Innovative & sustainable business park development

Visualisation & marketing

In order to raise the profile of the regional industrial estates and to market the available industrial sites or those under development on a supra-regional basis, we offer the production of aerial photographs. These provide an overview of the embedding in the spatial surroundings and make it possible to better grasp the area dimensions. In addition, we provide support in the preparation of location exposés and create image films for marketing activities.

  • Location exposés
  • Image films
  • Aerial photographs

Since individual municipalities are not completely reflected in many studies and location surveys, we offer the location check as a first position-finding exercise for smaller local authorities in the Technology Region Aachen.

With the location check, municipal monitoring is extended to include the analysis of central population and economic data, such as population and employment trends, migration and commuter flows as well as sector developments.
