Business Strategy

The Orion business approach is strategically diversified, embracing a multi-category property investment model. Contrary to traditional practices that focus on a singular property sector, our model offers a robust hedge by engaging across multiple sectors.

At he heart of our operations is the pursuit of buildings with established cash flow, which we enhance through renovations, redevelopment, repurposing and tenant mix optimization. Our agile business strategy also involves the timely sale of assets for capital gains, with the proceeds being reinvented into a new redevelopment projects and acquisitions.
