OUR COMPANY

A one-stop-shop for real estate management services

Redevco has 25 years of experience, in-house research, and highly skilled professionals in local markets. We offer investors a broad spectrum of real estate opportunities in Europe’s top performing cities.

In April 2022, Redevco acquired a majority stake in redos, the Hamburg-based large-scale retail and urban logistics property investment specialist, which brings the total Assets under Management around €9 billion. We manage around 320 assets in 10 countries across various portfolios for multiple investor clients. These properties comprise almost 4 million m2. of space, represent more than 2,500 tenancies.

In 2023 Redevco acquired a Dutch residential real estate specialist and launched Redevco Living, Redevco’s newly created residential development, investment, and operational platform. With a pipeline of several promising projects in the greater area of Rotterdam, The Hague and Amsterdam, combined with the existing residential (re)developments in The Netherlands, the UK and Germany, Redevco Living will further develop Redevco’s residential activities.

We are part of COFRA, a diversified group of companies whose heritage dates back 180 years to the founding of C&A. Today the group also comprises a private equity platform (Bregal), an asset management platform (Anthos Fund & Asset Management), a solar energy business (Sunrock), as well as its retail business (C&A).

At Redevco, we fundamentally believe in cities. Throughout our history, the urban environment has been a connecting factor – it is where we have always operated and continue to focus. Modern cities are becoming increasingly complex. The challenges they face include retail oversupply, increased housing demand, and the need for more efficient mobility and sustainable solutions.

Redevco has a solid track record of future-proofing existing assets by repurposing retail into multi-use properties and regenerating inner-city locations into dynamic places. We are passionate about helping cities transform, and we will continue to contribute to a more sustainable urban future that positively benefits the health and well-being of people and the planet.

History

Redevco over the years

1841

Our origins date back to 1841, when two brothers opened a textile warehouse in the Frisian town of Sneek, in the Netherlands. They opened their first shop 20 years later, selling traditional fabrics as well as a new product of historical significance: ready-to-wear clothing. These were the beginnings of a remarkable brand that went on to have an enormous impact on the fashion retail industry. Today, C&A can be found in Europe, Brazil, Mexico, and China.

Clemens and august mgr magazin
1999

In 1860, Clemens and August purchased and opened their first store in Sneek. As C&A expanded in the decades that followed, it built up an impressive portfolio of retail properties across Europe. This portfolio was initially managed by a department within C&A. It formed the foundation of Redevco’s portfolio when it was set up in 1999.

2000

In 2000, Redevco re-let 109 UK C&A stores comprising 500,000 m2. The majority of the UK portfolio was re-let within six months to major brands: Next, H&M, GAP, Primark, New Look and Wilkinson. Rental levels of the big UK stores were the highest in the portfolio, and in less than two years C&A’s share of Redevco’s tenant roll dropped to below 50% from 97% in 1999.
