This rapid pace is being fuelled on the one hand by basic supply and demand dynamics, changes to economic and planning policies, and on the other hand by a constantly evolving international marketplace and a crucial shift in attitudes to the sector as an asset and an investment class.
Today two thirds of current investors are seeking to increase their exposure to residential. Seismic change in the way people now live, work and shop is having a huge impact on the fundamental makeup, design and tenure of new developments. The UK’s major cities for example are some of the most cosmopolitan in the world, attracting capital from all corners of the globe. New areas of regeneration are springing up all over the country. An improved infrastructure and progressive design are breathing new life into old buildings, with previously unimagined uses coming into being. It thus comes as no surprise that these changes are having a profound effect on the residential real estate market, and this in turn is influencing how we advise our clients with regard to major project planning – including creating quality new homes and optimising returns over time.

We have a diverse range of projects that goes from boutique developments to some of the largest, longest-term regeneration projects, with the nature of our advice always depending on the client and the complexity of the project.
