Asset & Development Management
Unlocking and enhancing real estate value through active asset management
We focus on sustainable growth to ‘future-proof’ our portfolio as an active part of how we enhance financial worth
Our on-the-ground asset management teams leverage their collective expertise to maximise the potential of each asset we manage. Our full range of asset & property management services include development and transaction management, and specific strategic advice and subsequent business plan execution. This is how we ensure we drive returns and contribute to the transformational change cities require.
The core focus of Redevco’s asset management activities is to create and add value to existing and new assets for the benefit of our investor clients, occupiers and ultimately the cities in which we operate. We have a strong track record of repositioning spaces with sub-optimal use into destinations with a dynamic mix of functions and formats. We use a tenant-focused management style to create continuous rental and value enhancements. This approach intensifies the use of our buildings – turning them into truly relevant and interesting destinations that attract more people and spending, for more purposes and for longer hours.
Whenever Redevco redevelops an asset, we aim to unlock and enhance real estate value. We think conceptually about each property in the context of its location and use. Then, we translate our findings into a tangible design and turn it into reality. That is how we create vibrant destinations in and around cities where people want to live, work, play and shop. It is our objective to collaboratively plan construction works with the tenant(s) to minimise disruption of their business and secure income for our investors.
Redevco Living oversees the acquisition and master planning of numerous residential communities, office buildings and mixed-use projects. Recognising that every property is unique, we work closely with community representatives, local government authorities, and partners to ensure that each project aligns with the needs of those living and working in the projects and communities we invest in. Our developments bring a rich mix of living, working, learning and socialising to urban environments.
Redevco is an investment manager with a focus on sustainable growth, so ‘future-proofing’ individual assets is an active part of how we contribute to a better, more sustainable urban environment. We improve the environmental performance and social impact of the properties that we manage – both in terms of construction and operation – so that we can pass them on in a better state than when we acquired them. At the same time, we believe that more energy efficient assets will result in enhanced value growth and investor demand. To obtain the best results, our asset managers work with a dedicated team to understand key trends and drivers for future real estate demand.
At Redevco, we believe innovation is integral to being entrepreneurial. We strive to do things smarter within our own platform and across our value chain. Part of this approach includes looking at technological developments in the market and how those might help us make our business future-proof. This in turn positions us ahead of the curve. In this context, we use space differently with a focus on sustainability and flexibility. To do that we offer full service concepts that lower the barriers for tenants to open a store and help them improve performance.
We have skilled asset management teams in every country or region where Redevco is active. Our professionals know their markets and have an extensive network of the right local contacts. Our local teams are headed by seasoned Portfolio Directors.
