Our business model

Unlocking potential and adding value

Secure land

We secure land that is right for community focused regeneration and mixed-use development projects.These are often underestimated and overlooked sites, full of heritage and potential, too complex for others.

We are good at securing sites:

  • Strong relationships lead to off-market deals
  • We have a proven track record of more than 25 years
  • We focus on regions where planning policy promotes regeneration

Unlock + add value

We unlock value in three ways:


Public Private Partnership

Transforming sites into vibrant mixed-use communities.

22%

of gross assets

Large, long-term regeneration projects

We have an equity-light approach with the public or private sector which seeds the partnership with land. 

We capture value through mixed-used development, typically including some residential, office, retail and leisure.

Financial characteristics: Multi-year profits.
Profit driver: developing site and subsequent disposal / funding.

Quality, network and trust give us a licence to operate:

  • We have a high success rate in securing public private partnerships
  • We are a public sector partner of choice and TfL and GLA panel members, giving us privileged access to new opportunities

Trading

Improving land value, primarily through planning.

48%

of gross assets

Short-term trading opportunities: 

We take advantage of mis-priced assets.

We secure land and add value through enhanced planning consents, change of use, or asset management.

Financial characteristics: 1-3 year profits
Profit driver: Disposal.

We are good at getting planning permission:

  • Our success rate is >90%, mitigating planning risk
  • We have long-term relationships with decision makers
  • We optimise mix of use and density to create value through planning

Investment

Smart asset management where there is regeneration potential.

30%

of gross assets

Asset management

We add value through active asset management of income producing sites. They are our anchor for development and trading.

Financial characteristics: Recurring stable income and capital growth.
Profit driver: Potential sale in excess of book value or capital value through revaluation.

Our proactive approach and local knowledge drives value:

  • Asset management initiatives mean assets average 10% total return.
  • Our regeneration focus allows us to transition PPP / trading projects across to our investment portfolio where we can nurture them to gain further long-term value.
