Romanian developer One United Properties says its consolidated turnover rose by 4% year-on-year to €235.4 million in 2022, while its gross profit fell 5% to €116.2 million over higher investment activity. 

Revenue from residential sales reached €156 million during 2022 and the net income from residential property was up 29% to €64.7 million. 

In 2022, One United Properties sold and pre-sold 599 apartments with a total surface of 52,724 sqm, 978 parking spaces and other unit types, as well as early-stage apartments for €169.2 million euros. At the end of 2022, 62% of apartments under development were sold out.  

“As of January 1st, 2023, 2,285 units at our delivered and under construction developments were already sold, meaning that our sales team had a portfolio of 1,143 residential units available for sale. Moreover, we estimate pre-sales for an additional 1,167 units located at the first phases of One Lake District and One Lake Club to start within the first half of 2023, thus securing a steady cash flow for our company. On top of this, we continuously keep looking for opportunities in the market, which will allow us to build a solid pipeline for the years to come, opportunities such as One Cotroceni Towers, our latest announcement, or One Downtown and One Plaza Athénée, both developments which will strengthen our urban regeneration strategy in the historic center of Bucharest,” said Victor Căpitanu, co-CEO at One United Properties.
