Rodos actively pursues acquisition opportunities of well-located properties that are in need of renovation or repositioning in the marketplace. While both renovation and development opportunities are sought, Rodos may also readapt the use of a property or site. Rodos can readapt a former retail space into an office building or convert a single story shopping center into a multi story mixed use project. Rodos identifies market trends and understands national investment dynamics, then blends equity and debt capital to best match each project. An acquisition and development strategy is established that accommodates a sale of the finished project to an investor seeking a stable asset with Class-A fundamentals or refinanced for Rodos to hold the asset long term.
