Our team analyses and implements hotel development opportunities. We have a strong track record in transacting properties with hotel development potential, often with different planning designations. The team has worked on properties that have become from the simplest to the most luxurious hotels.
We represent a varied client group, from developers to hotel owners seeking to maximise the value of their assets. Whether advising on a hotel that is part of a mixed-use scheme or an individual asset, our skill and ability to identify the optimal occupational solution is unrivalled.
We negotiate occupational leases, hotel management contracts and franchise agreements, and advise on the structuring of joint venture deals. We also offer assistance in the structuring of land rents.
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 comes from the team’s involvement in previous successful projects. However, it is often necessary to conduct more detailed, focused analyses, which is why we ofter our clients bespoke research reports to help them make informed decisions.
