ABOUT ARKADIA

Arkadia specialises in the acquisition, management, leasing and development of a diversified property portfolio throughout Australia.

Arkadia's core business and area of expertise is focused in the retail and leisure asset classes. Today, the group mandate has expanded to 3 hotels and 12 centres along the east coast of Australia.  The retail portfolio alone includes a mix of neighbourhood and large format retail centres, while the wider retail portfolio including retail arcades, retail complexes and free-standing retail shops, all located in prime trade areas on the Eastern Seaboard.

Typically, our retail centres are anchored by major blue chip national tenants whilst incorporating a wide cross-section of high-quality specialty retailers.

Being a private group of our size and scale allows us to be both nimble and dynamic in how we operate existing assets and view new opportunities. We maintain a low gearing throughout the group to be able to take advantage of evolving real estate markets.
