A solid portfolio
Redevco France’s portfolio currently comprises 79 properties in prime locations in the main towns and cities of France, with a total value estimated at one billion euros. Most of our properties are retail units that are rented out to major domestic and international retail brands, but also to local retailers. The quality of our assets and their geographical spread, combined with the diversity of our tenant base, make for a solid, balanced portfolio.
After an ambitious acquisition programme, Redevco has now shifted its focus to development. As the initiator of many creative projects, Redevco emphasises quality and long horizons. We want our projects to create significant added value; this enables us to make long-term investments in which sustainability is systematically integrated. We look ahead to anticipate changing forms of consumption and adapt our buildings accordingly, so that they are perfectly aligned with the current and future needs of our tenants. This is why we are seen as a dependable and professional player that also enjoys the advantages of financial resources to match its ambitions.
Redevco looks above all for commercial properties located in the heart of the biggest towns and cities of France, with a unit investment of between 10 and 100 million euros. We prefer investments that offer potential for us to create value by redeveloping them. We evaluate investment opportunities by applying short- and medium-term financial criteria, but equally with regard to long-term perspectives that take account of changes in society, urban planning and the environment. We are living through a period of evolution and even revolution in urban planning. Today’s new lifestyles are giving rise to unprecedented needs for welcoming spaces for an increasingly urban, ageing, hedonistic population seeking safety and comfort. The future of towns and their centres will involve high-quality retail as is an integral part of the urban fabric rather than operating outside or alongside it.
These days, city centres must combine economic initiatives with physical proximity in order to make life in the city more dynamic. In this context Redevco builds close relationships with authorities, developers and investors.
We are quick to involve our retail partners in the preliminary stages of a project so that we can come up with innovative solutions. With our organisation and financial power, our group is able to take decisions quickly and implement them impeccably.

It is Redevco’s commitment to working alongside its clients that makes it one of the leading international real estate companies. We build solid relationships on faultless ethics.
