CapMan Real Estate and CASA joint venture invest in a residential development project in Rødovre

A joint venture between CapMan’s value-add real estate fund CapMan Nordic Real Estate III and CASA A/S has acquired a property in Rødovre, which will be transformed into almost 8,000 square meters of housing and parking space. It is the third property acquired for the joint venture established last year.

Located on Egegårdsvej, the property under development will be part of a new residential quarter, which will be in one of the most central locations in Rødovre. With just 500 m. to Rødovre Centrum and a stone’s throw from Damhussøen, there is an opportunity for the future residents to enjoy all the best that Rødovre has to offer.

“We are very happy and satisfied with the purchase of this property, which gives us the opportunity to develop an exciting project in Rødovre. I come from the area myself and therefore know the special DNA, which is unique for Rødovre. Therefore, it is great to be able to work with a project and an area that hopefully gives something back to the city, among other things by establishing a new pedestrian street. We are also happy to work together with CASA, which we know stands for delivering good quality, in everything that they do,” says Peter Gill, Partner and Head of CapMan Real Estate Denmark.

For CASA, the development of the new residential area in Rødovre is one of several projects carried out by the Danish property developer and total contractor on Copenhagen’s Vestegn.

“We see many opportunities in developing Copenhagen’s surrounding municipalities. Rødovre itself has a lot to offer – good shopping, beautiful nature and a special Rødovre soul – while being close to Copenhagen and everything the city offers. CapMan Real Estate is for us the right partner on such projects, because they manage to see all opportunities due to their professional approach,” says Torben Modvig, CEO of CASA A/S.

The upcoming residential project in Rødovre will be just the latest in a series of collaborations between CapMan and CASA. Thus, the investor and the property developer already have a joint venture on the renovation of an office building in Frederiksberg and cooperation in the construction of several hundred homes on Copenhagen’s Vestegn.

CapMan Real Estate currently has over 40 dedicated professionals in investment, asset management and property management. CapMan’s current properties under management make up almost €3.6 billion.
