Plus 100.000 square meters bank portfolio on behalf of Danske Bank

Robert V. S. Nellemann, Head of Strategic Property Asset Management, Danske Bank:

"Danske Bank has used RED's advisory services in its effort of selling the Bank's office portfolio located in Ejby and Høje Taastrup as a sale & lease back of a total of +100,000 sqm. The choice of RED was based on the company's ability to look at the portfolio from a financial perspective. In doing so RED succeeded in making the portfolio attractive to a range of potential investors – both domestic and international. RED has lived up to the Banks trust given to them, and a sale is accomplished within a short period to a price exceeding the forecast by RED. RED has shown the ability to be analytical, structured and focused – therefore our joint success was obtained."

Buy-side advisory for AEW Europe – Købmagergade 11

Cushman & Wakefield | RED has acted as buy-side advisor for AEW Europe in their purchase of Købmagergade 11, where Patrizia was the seller. We identified the investment possibility for AEW Europe; a new player on the Danish market following their acquisition of Købmagergade 13.

Nybrogade 12

Sale of the former head office of the Association of Danish Mortgage Banks

In connection with the merger between the Association of Danish Mortgage Banks and the Danish Bankers Association and the subsequent relocation to Amaliegade, the main office of the Association of Danish Mortgage Banks on Nybrogade was sold as vacant. Cushman & Wakefield | RED was responsible for the sale and made the property available through a discreet and targeted process, and it was eventually purchased by Karberghus. The sale was carried out over two months and at a price of DKK 51 million. Our primary success criteria in this case was to find the perfect buyer in a relatively short period of time, so that the seller could focus on the pending merger and relocation. We believe we achieved this with Karberghus, which can add the property to its portfolio of classic Copenhagen buildings, several of which were designed by Philip de Lange.


Illum is Denmark’s best-located retail property and was originally built in 1891 by AC Illum. The property was sold to a foreign property fund in close cooperation with Cushman & Wakefield, London.
