Our all-weather crew


“It is our goal to create highly attractive and ecologically improved locations from old derelict waterfront properties, new spaces for plants and wildlife and for people to work and live in. Our projects are all about people and they are firmly based on a team-oriented co-operation with our partners and a client-centered account management. This makes our projects unique investments for everyone involved.” (Heiner Kropp)


Our Hamburg office is located at the river Elbe close to the fish market. Here a committed crew is developing our projects together with project-related external experts.


Heiner Kropp



Heiner Kropp is the chief executive officer of imetas. He established the company in 2000 in Hamburg, the location of its main office. His focus is on developing waterfront properties. He grew up in Bremerhaven right at the Weser dike and he became an avid sailor early on. This explains his passion for water and the sea, which has become such an integral part of the corporate vision of imetas.


Already during his studies at Hamburg University his enthusiasm for real estate started to flourish.
Today, over 30 years of experience - covering all aspects of the real-estate business - are the solid basis for his know-how and his professional network.

Real estate economist

On board since the very beginning, the company’s finances are firmly under her control. The real estate economist is originally from Cologne but Hamburg has meanwhile become her adopted home.

Her comprehensive expertise in the field of real-estate is the result of her extensive professional experience, above all in financial controlling.




A seasoned crew with members from within and outside of the company is the guarantee that there are always sufficient hands on deck. They keep the projects safely on course, expertly sailing with the winds and tides toward success.
