Our Development team provides the following services:
Our teams analyse and execute hotel development opportunities. The team has a strong track record in transacting properties with hotel development potential, often with different planning designations. We have worked on properties that have become select service, midscale, lifestyle, upscale and luxury hotels.
We represent a varied client group, from commercial developers to hotel owners seeking to maximise the value of their assets. Whether advising on a hotel forming part of a mixed-use scheme or an individual asset, our skill and expertise in identifying the optimal solution is unrivalled.
We negotiate occupational leases, hotel management contracts and franchise agreements, and advise on joint venture deal structuring. We also assist in structuring ground rents.
Much of the data, information and analysis required to determine the correct form, type and size of development is present in-house. After all, our experience stems from the numerous successful projects in the past. Nevertheless, it is often necessary to conduct more detailed, focused analysis. That's why we frequently provide bespoke research reports to help our clients make the best possible decisions. Our Hospitality Research department works on strategic research reports, helping to coordinate Hotel Development Advisory work across EMEA.
