A student residence in Italy in October 2022
A real estate asset management professional, Ralph Kattan believes in the potential of student residences, an excellent investment which also has the advantage of resisting the crisis well. Each year, thousands of students seek accommodation in the private park. Being specially designed for and around students, student residences offer a response perfectly suited to the needs of the latter, which gives them an undeniable competitive advantage. In addition, investing in this type of residence allows you to diversify your assets and benefit from tax reductions in certain countries (for example Censi-Bouvard when the investment is made in France by taxable persons in France).
It is in this sense that he embarked on a student residence project in Italy, thanks to the transformation of a building, former headquarters of Lavazza (café), located between the territories of Aurora and Barriera di Milano. Given the tight deadlines, the Swiss investor group led by Ralph Kattan will have to work harder by starting the transformation project at the former Lavazza headquarters this summer. At the end of the works in October 2022, this building will have a capacity of 300 beds, with single rooms, double rooms and small studios with a kitchenette. The student residence will also have a library, a gym, a laundromat, a restaurant, classrooms and two magnificent panoramic terraces.
