Chicago — Chicago-based CA Ventures has announced plans to invest $500 million over the next five years into the European housing marketing, with a focus on purpose-built student housing and multifamily properties.

The firm is currently developing two student housing projects in Poland – 700 beds in Krakow and 400 beds in Warsaw – and is in active negotiations to acquire properties and development sites in the U.K, the Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Ireland and the Czech Republic.

“CA has been an innovator in student housing in the Americas for over a decade and, as a team, we’ve been evaluating the European housing market closely for several years,” says Tom Scott, CEO of CA Ventures. “We believe the market for purpose-built student housing in Europe is poised to benefit from growing university enrollments, increasing consumer adoption and a very limited supply of amenitized housing.”
