The River Dambovita in Bucharest, Romania

Revetas Capital Advisors, along with Cerberus Capital Management and its affiliates, acquired Project Nemo, a hotel complex with approximately 86,000 square meters of gross leasable area in Bucharest, Romania. The complex includes the Radisson Blu and Park Inn hotels, consisting of a total of 697 guestrooms to be operated by the Rezidor Hotel Group, as well as approximately 7,500 square meters of prime retail space anchored by tenants such as Burberry and Hugo Boss.

The investment in Project Nemo is further supported by the portfolio's existing leadership position within the growing Romanian market, with Radisson Blu and Park Inn considered sought-after brands in the region.

"Project Nemo is one of the most compelling hospitality and retail assets in the CEE region," Eric Assimakopoulos, managing partner at Revetas, said in a statement. "As the fastest growing economy in the EU, Romania offers tremendous upside potential. We look forward to increasing the value of these properties in partnership with Cerberus."
