Cooper Square Acquisitions (“CSA”) was founded in 2015 as a value-added platform for acquiring, repositioning, and managing distressed properties in the South Jersey marketplace.
We believe strongly in Camden and would like to do our part in the revitalization of the city. We take pride in providing improving the city’s housing stock one home at a time.
Our investment strategy is focused on block by block improvement. Our firm invests in vacant, non performing houses in prime residential locations close to major area economic drivers. These economic drivers include the Rutgers Camden Campus, Cooper Hospital, the Liberty Property and Brandywine waterfront new developments, the Heart of Camden Waterfront South Revitalization, and the St. Joseph’s Carpenter Society Lanning Square Revitalization.
After purchasing and improving vacant houses, the values and desirability of the blocks we invest in begin to improve.
We are proud of our experienced Camden based team and have tremendous capacity to expand.
In 2018 CSA purchased 30 residential units with an aggregate value north of $2.5 MM. In 2019 CSA is on pace purchase and rehabilitate 60 residential units valued over $4MM. To date the firm has only sold 3 assets and believes in a long term buy and hold approach.
