Our Business

Sponsor & Developer

When repositioning, converting or developing a real estate asset, a complex set of overlapping work streams must be seamlessly managed. Successful implementation of these critical processes depends on a Developer’s ability to manage and execute a series of interrelated activities efficiently and at the appropriate time. By combining an owner’s role and objectives with management expertise, Rothgen approaches every project with thoughtful vision, diligence and understanding of risks.

Rothgen – Coordinating the symphony of creative developments

At Rothgen, we source and convert ideas on paper into real property improvements. We create, imagine, originate, fund, control and orchestrate this process from beginning to end.
Development requires the skills and coordination of numerous professionals ranging from the following:

  • Architects, landscape architects and site planners to address project design;
  • Marketing consultants and analysts to determine market demand and project economics;
  • Lawyers & legal teams to handle agreements and government approvals;
  • Environmental consultants, geotechnical and structural engineers to analyse a project’s physical limitations and environmental impact;
  • Surveyors and title companies to provide insurance and legal descriptions of a property;
  • Construction professionals to execute on the physical plan;
  • Lenders and financing institutes to provide appropriate leverage - a crucial element to financial success and fulfilment of objectives.

At Rothgen, we ensure that these “sounds of the orchestra” are in-sync in order to produce the symphony that our partners, clients and investors deserve.

Real Estate Financing and Investment

The Rothgen approach to real estate investments is centred around underwriting investments based on fee ownership. Whether the investment is structured as equity, debt or both, Rothgen has the skill and knowledge to evaluate a property and formulate the right strategy to maximize its value.

With ownership and active involvement in the physical asset being its core concentration, Rothgen is able to take advantage of the opportunities and mitigate inherent risks.

The firm seeks to identify current needs and create innovative solutions to reach short and long-term investment goals. By combining an owner’s goals and objectives with management expertise, Rothgen adds value to underlying real estate. The knowledge we have gained enables us to evaluate and structure our clients’ real estate transactions to meet their business goals.

Rothgen brings depth of understanding and expertise to all its engagements and provides its partners, clients and investors direct exposure to physical underlying assets.
