We have an excellent track record as an owner-run and experienced investment and asset management company. Since 1998, our KAURI CAB Team has completed transactions with a total volume exceeding EUR 1 billion and represented over 100 investments.
As part of joint ventures with institutional PE investors, pension funds, family offices and private investors, priority was given to property acquisitions in the Berlin metropolitan area and in Magdeburg.
KAURI CAB supplies all of the crucial competences required for successful investment and asset management, in-house, through our own staff. We have an extensive network at our disposal and enjoy early access to interesting investment opportunities thanks to having been deeply embedded within the Berlin property market for many years. This includes, above all, existing properties within the multi-storey residential and commercial sectors, as well as land with development potential.
KAURI CAB is a partner for sustainable investment growth. At present, the asset value within the management portfolio (AUM) lies at almost EUR 800 million, includes about 4,000 units (existing property) and a new development project with over 70,000 m² gross floor space, situated in one of the last major development locales (Europa City) in Berlin City Centre.
We are currently expanding our list of clientele with additional capital partners seeking investment opportunities in portfolio transactions and individual real estate on the basis of their income management.
Please see our Acquisition Profile for more information about selected assets.
However, we are now increasingly following the market for medium and long-term investments in other cities. Our previous acquisitions cover a broad profile demonstrating impressive increases in asset value. Our activities in this respect range from portfolio transactions (consisting of several hundred units) to individual property acquisitions (such as individual old buildings with significant renovation requirements) and multi-storey blocks (with their familiar massive maintenance backlogs) as well as re-positioning, new rentals and re-vitalisation of residential and commercial real estate.
Our core expertise
Our core expertise lies in the detailed development and professional implementation of value-adding strategies: we have the gift of recognising opportunities and potential for increasing asset value early on and make use of this for you as a capital partner to achieve this increase in value.
How do we view ourselves?
KAURI CAB doesn’t just think of itself as an investment manager. We take over the leadership role within the acquisitions process and pave the way for professionally made investments, i.e. including deal structuring, business plan creation, purchase contract negotiations and notarisation.
We identify business opportunities at an early stage. This means that, as a company, we know how to invest in purchasing options as a co-investor with a very high alignment of interest. Our Team is always present where your capital is invested - and ensures that all agreed investment goals are steadfastly pursued. KAURI CAB sees itself as an active asset manager and an operational agent of the owner, who takes on responsibility for all aspects of value creation, including planning and overseeing all construction, maintenance and leasing matters, internally, and who provides comprehensive property management.
We believe that regular asset management and financial reporting, customised to the needs of our capital partners, should also be provided as standard.
Corporate & Financial Management
Due to our extensive experience, we also frequently take on preparation and support roles within the corporate & financial management sector, e.g. support during corporate and fiscal structuring, coordination of external service providers such as tax and legal advisors, organisation of corporate archives, resolutions and board meetings as well as risk management, to name but a few.
As a project developer, the goal of KCD is to develop residential areas in Berlin and the surrounding regions. Our wealth of expertise in sustainable asset growth of existing property, is now being successfully employed for new developments.
WASSERSTADT MITTE in EUROPA CITY
A lively and diverse inner-city district is now blossoming in the area between Berlin Central Station and the Government District known as the EUROPA CITY development zone!
This real estate is some of Berlin’s most interesting, within the inner-city, due to its excellent location and close proximity to urban and regional transport networks as well as innumerable cultural attractions. This site is going to be the location of a new city district showcasing excellent urban and architectural qualities.
KAURI CAB Development Berlin is developing apartments, as well as co-living, office and commercial units, including a nursery, over an area of 24,000 m².
Der nordöstliche Teil der Europacity entlang der Heidestraße in Berlin-Mitte bekommt ein neues Gesicht. 13 renommierte Architekturbüros aus Deutschland folgten der Einladung von Benson Elliot und Kauri CAB Development und stellten sich einem spannenden Architekturwettbewerb mit der Zielsetzung ein lebendiges Quartier mit urbanem Charakter im Herzen von Berlin zu entwerfen. Der Schwerpunkt in diesem attraktiven Umfeld mit Wasserlage liegt auf dem Mietwohnungsbau.
Vor fast auf den Tag genau zehn Jahren landete der Berliner Hauptbahnhof wie ein Ufo auf dem 40 ha großen ehemaligen Bahngelände, das einmal die Europacity werden sollte. Ein kompletter Stadtteil mit tausenden Wohnungen, Geschäften und Büros war schon damals zwischen Spree und Nordhafen geplant. Doch erst seitdem die Hauptstadt so rasant wächst, gewinnt das Mega-Projekt an Fahrt.
Berlin. Viele von den Grundstücken, die CA Immo in der großteils als Bürostandort geplanten Europacity am Hauptbahnhof für Wohngebäude entwickelt und vermarktet hat, sind nicht mehr zu haben. Vergangene Woche kauften Benson Elliot und Kauri CAB zusammen gleich acht Baufelder mit 25.000 m2 Grund. Für 300 Mio. Euro soll dort ein gemischt genutztes Quartier mit knapp 500 Wohnungen entstehen.
We can provide all services, under one roof, from deal sourcing to acquisitions, credit structuring and asset management as well as architectural and construction services. After any acquisition, we invest in our property systematically to increase the quality of housing for tenants.
