We actively manage our own assets and projects through an in-house team and retained professional advisers. We are well funded through our principle financial backers HSBC and ICG Longbow. We have also carried out selective asset and development management deals with third party funders and JV partners.
Our investment and development portfolio has been built through both strategic and opportunistic deals over the years. Our historic focus on secondary commercial property has expanded to cover larger scale strategic development sites and retail, leisure and residential new build development. We continually look to improve our assets by innovating and responding to changes in market demand and end user requirements.
We have created significant value from regenerating existing brownfield sites by obtaining planning consent for residential and mixed use development. From this we have a developed a good understanding of the complexities and requirements of taking challenging greenfield and brownfield sites through the planning process working with landowners, house builders and the public sector. This has in turn led to the creation of a land promotion business which works with landowners to secure maximum value whilst working with rather than against local communities and local authorities.
Partnership and sustainable long term development is at the heart of everything we do.
Our track record in working with property professionals, local authorities, funding partners, landowners, other property companies and other partners sets us apart. We believe this approach combined with our extensive experience and existing portfolio makes us an innovative and forward thinking property company that is well positioned to take advantage of the changes in the property market in the years to come.
