Supported by skilled entrepreneurship and substantive expertise, Porten aims meeting and excelling demands beyond the market. Projects are developed in close collaboration with local municipalities, tenants, investors, contractors, architects and designers.
The development of urban, office, residential areas and shopping centres requires smooth teamwork between the different professionals and stakeholders involved. The multi-disciplinary nature of project development, with diverse aspects requiring careful consideration, teamwork is essential. Knowing the market and understanding investors’ demands, a clear view of risk-return, combined with an in-depth technical and design know-how are particularly crucial. Most important of all is a shared ambition driving all parties contributing to the project aiming for the same target.
Porten is a property developer with a European focus. It has particularly extensive experience of developments in Austria, Belgium, Hungary, the Netherlands, Slovakia, and Sweden. At present, the market for residential developments in the Netherlands is firm, optimistic and growing.
Porten offers a unique combination of urban planning and architectural design, together with market knowledge and a commitment to the stringent demands of sustainability and energy concepts. Property should serve the demands of its users. Tenants must be provided with a captivating domestic environment, as well as comfortable surroundings for living, working, shopping and leisure activities. These conditions together create the basis of all our development projects.
Throughout our more than twenty years of delivering property developments, our projects have been realised in close cooperation with IG Immobilien Gmbh (IG), Vienna, as the investment (Equity) partner. IG is the real estate arm of ÖNB, the Austrian National Bank.
Our network of professional relations has steadily and gradually increased over the past years. This interconnected system provides us with the ideal platform for expansion. Porten is ambitious to be recognised as a small niche European developer, with a notable specialisation in residential projects. Nonetheless, thanks to our proven experience in a diversity of sectors within property development, office projects and retail developments will be equally welcome for consideration.
In the Netherlands, and with the great Randstad Metropole (Amsterdam, Haarlem, Leiden, The Hague, Rotterdam, Utrecht and Zaandam) representing our priority market, Porten has focused on residential projects since 2010, including, among others, apartments, student housing, and extended-stay hotels.
