The CPI Property Group in its current format was established in 2014 by the combination of the Czech CPI Group portfolio (Czech Property Investments) and German GSG Group (formerly Orco Germany). Radovan Vítek, the new majority owner, brought a property portfolio of great value to the group as well as many years of experience in investing in the Central-European property market.

The GSG Group, founded in 2004, was the leading company in the field of commercial property leasing in Berlin, focusing on investments in real estate, development and property management. Thanks to the acquisition of the German company Gewerbesiedlungs-Gesellschaft (GSG), the GSG Group became the biggest owner of office buildings and shopping space in Berlin in 2007.

The CPI Group, namely its mother company Czech Property Investments, was established in 1991 and has since then continued expanding its activities on the Czech, Slovak, Hungarian and Polish markets across all segments – office buildings, shopping centres and retail parks, industrial zones, development projects and land portfolio. Significant activities include important acquisitions that further strengthened portfolio diversification, for example, in the case of rental accommodation, retail buildings and whole development companies, such as Hungarian Ablon. In 2012, the CPI Group released the first public issue of corporate and project bonds, which were very successful and became an additional source of financing. The Group moved, step by step, to the forefront of the most significant Czech real estate investors.
