Our Development team provides the following services:
Development Advisory and Brokerage
Our team analyses and executes hotel development opportunities. Our specialists have a strong track record in transacting properties with hotel development potential, often with different planning designations. Our hotel projects include Midscale, Lifestyle, Upscale and Luxury hotel conversions.
We represent a varied client group, from commercial developers to hotel owners seeking to maximize the value of their assets. Whether advising on a hotel forming part of a mixed-use scheme or an individual property, our skill and ability in identifying the optimal occupational solution is unrivalled.
We negotiate occupational lease and hotel management contracts and franchise agreements and advise on corporate structuring. We also assist in structuring ground rental agreements.
Much of the data, information and analysis required to determine the correct form, type and size of development is held within our team. Our experience stems from our involvement in previous successful projects. It is often necessary to conduct more detailed, focused analysis, so we help our clients make informed decisions by performing bespoke research.
Our Hospitality Market Research Busines Unit works on strategic research reports, helping Hotel Development Advisory work across EMEA.
How We Can Help
Our team has the latest understanding of major hotel trends and brands in Europe. This comes from regular interaction with the leading market players and from a global network of colleagues introducing us to the latest concepts from around the world. From independent hotel development to international brand evolvement, we have a significant knowledge of the market requirements.
We provide our clients with solutions that adapt to their very specific investment and occupational needs. Our key considerations include creating value; de-risking developments, expediting sales and attracting high-quality hotel brands.
A successful hotel development requires a stable, well structured capital stack, therefore, with the help of our Hospitality Capital Markets team (link) we support clients in securing appropriate debt and equity.
