Property development experience
We have developed countless schemes, mostly in the prime central London areas, over the last 25 years. They range from boutique lateral schemes to much larger full service developments. Invariably, these were unconditional purchases of offices, hotels, medical and institutional buildings. Additional value was added during the planning, design and build process, delivering some of London’s most outstanding, award-winning and iconic residential schemes.
Our focus has been more planning-led rather than development, with our remit extending to London’s outer zones and commuter belt suburbs. We have been acquiring derelict buildings, strategic brownfield sites, industrial estates and investment properties where there have been a number of value-add or change of use angles through intense asset management and planning.
We have acquired a number of office buildings over the years in a variety of locations. Development has ranged from a basic refurb to a full scale development.
Over time we have been involved in a number of prime and non-prime retail investments which include restaurants, niche high street shops, gyms/spas, art galleries and shopping centres. These have invariably required active management through re-gearing, repositioning, planning and refurbishment.
A number of office buildings in prime and secondary locations were deemed to be more suitable for hotel use. We continue to be actively involved in this sector, designing and obtaining planning for a variety of brands that range from budget to luxury. We work very closely with a number of niche operators and investors.
We were one of the early pioneers of build-to-rent and retain a significant PRS portfolio. Our serviced apartment brand ‘The Armitage‘ is a premium offering and continues to expand. In more recent years we have also acquired a number of hostels and HMO portfolios off market, where we are exploring a variety of co-living platforms with the repositioning of these assets through income stream enhancement, creative value add planning and active management.
