One United Properties, a leading real estate developer in Romania, has announced at the beginning of June that an investment company, coordinated by Daniel Dines, has acquired 5% of Victor Capitanu and Andrei Diaconescu’s shares. 

The real estate company develops green residential offices and mixed projects in Bucharest. They aim to develop the middle and upper-income segment in the capital and other major cities in Romania or the region. 

“Romania has proven to be an excellent hub for talents in various sectors, and the potential of the real estate industry is no exception,” Daniel Dines commented for the One United Properties blog.

One United Properties has announced its intention to become listed on the Main Market of the Bucharest Stock Exchange back in April. The two founders own 75% of the company and are the only executive members of the board of directors.

The MedTech project received over €28M the first week of June to reinvent primary care medicine. The team is looking to develop co-working spaces for this niche in Europe. The project also aims to offer telemedicine, starting with Munich.
