”Nobody has had a more significant impact on the development of Copenhagen during the past 30 years than Jens Kramer Mikkelsen. We are of course excited to welcome him as NREP’s new Director of Urban Development. NREP’s mission is to make real estate better and Kramer’s unique knowledge within modern and innovative city development will be a great contributor to bring our mission to life”, says Rasmus Nørgaard, co-founder, NREP.

Jens Kramer Mikkelsen has played a central role in the development of the “Copenhagen Model” for city development, where sales and developments of publicly-owned urban land plots are being used to finance strategic infrastructure projects. Jens Kramer Mikkelsen’s urban development experience includes his pioneering work as Mayor of Copenhagen 1989-2004 and subsequently three years at the Ørestad Development Company as well as 11 years as CEO of CPH City & Port Development, the publicly owned company that is charged with shaping the future of Copenhagen.

"NREP is known for being an innovative property developer, investor and operator that thinks long-term and focuses on creating value for consumers, society and investors alike. I am looking forward to taking part in NREP’s many ambitious projects. I find it very inspiring to be able to transfer my experience from urban development in Copenhagen to other Nordic cities", says Jens Kramer Mikkelsen.

“It is a well-known story that before anyone had ever thought about developing areas around central Copenhagen, such as Ørestad and North Harbour, Jens Kramer Mikkelsen, as Mayor of Copenhagen, toured the city hall and the Danish parliament with a vision and a city map that have now become reality and homes for thousands of people. During his long career, Jens Kramer Mikkelsen has created and executed visions for several attractive Copenhagen neighborhoods and we look forward to leverage that experience to NREP's urban development projects”, says Rasmus Nørgaard.
