UNION Norsk Næringsmegling engages in strategic cooperation with Retail Property

UNION Norsk Næringsmegling AS has entered into strategic cooperation with Retail Property AS in order to further strengthen the retail effort.

Retail Property is headed by Christian Stentoft Østby. He has 16 years of experience in property, recently as Leasing Manager in Promenade Management and Property Manager in Søylen Eiendom. He was central in developing the area of luxury retail in Egertorget, Nedre Slottsgate, Øvre Slottsgate and Prinsensgate. Now he will use his expertise on UNION's customers.

- Retail expertise  is necessary to succeed with successful development of retail properties, street locations, shopping malls, local trade areas and office concepts for the future. With expertise in retail and concept development, customers will be better placed to succeed in value creation. Christian therefore becomes a valuable resource for our team and for our customers, says Frithjof Foss.

Attractive, experience-based concepts on street levels and a greater degree of overall thinking for the properties will create greater value creation for our customers.

- I look forward to starting work with UNION. In a changing marketplace on both the office and the commercial side, the right concept on street levels is important for creating life and sustainability in the properties, both physically and digitally. I have broad experience from the different segments, both nationally and internationally, so that areas, rents and locations can be optimized according to the prerequisites. I look forward to advising customers to optimize their investments and create better dynamics between different tenants. That way, a single building, a street or a whole area could be lifted and make it even more attractive for tenants and customers alike, says, Christian Stentoft Østby. 

The cooperation makes UNION well positioned to assist customers to invest, develop and operate the future retail market.
