In 1980 our shareholders and partners opened an office in Arlington Ridge Road, Arlington, Virginia - opposite the Pentagon. Shortly after Robert Towers in Arlinton close to Washington's National airport which comprised a midrise block of 200 flats was purchased from Abe Polin, the owner of the Washington Redskins and completely refurbished in 'Old English' style, renamed 'The Cavendish' and converted to condominium living. Following on one year later a high rise block of 160 flats was acquired by the name of 'The Lancaster' adjacent to the Pentagon's Navy Annexe and again converted to condominiums.
During the late 1980's a partnership was established with Colonel Sydney Anderson, the former chief of police on the island of St Vincent in the West Indies. These were serviced home plots located at Argyle Gardens on St. Vincent's windward coast. A villa was then developed at Rose Cottage overlooking the exclusive Young Island Resort to very high standards by the celebrated Italian architect Mario Spinella who was instrumental in designing and building many celebrity homes on nearby Mustique including the home of Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall.
In view of dynamic growth of the Norwegian economy and its involvement in overseas investment particularly in the United Kingdom, the business was relocated to southern Norway where several real estate acquisitions were undertaken.
We actively seek and acquire residential income producing portfolios, purpose built blocks of flats and estate of houses throughout England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
