"Redwood is a big tree that grows slowly over time, remains solid, usually survives storms and you can do something useful with the wood" - Charles Arton
Redwood Property Ventures was founded in Cape Town, South Africa in 1994 by Charles Arton. With the financial backing and support of Michael Rubin, Redwood Property Ventures specialized in residential GASH (Good Address Small Home) housing. In the formative years post 1994, Redwood Property Ventures extended its reach into intelligently developing both industrial and commercial greenfields developments and redevelopments. In addition, also specializing in the repurposing of many existing buildings. In the late 1990’s, Redwood Property Ventures was a pioneering property company introducing Cape Town to the contemporary New York style loft apartment.
In the early 2000’s, Redwood added an investment portfolio to the growing business. This activity today still forms the main focus of Redwood Property Ventures.
