Our Development team provides the following services:

Development Brokerage

Our team identifies, analyses and executes hotel development opportunities. The team has long-standing experience and a strong track record in transacting properties with hotel development potential, often with different planning designations. We have worked on properties that have become Midscale, Lifestyle, Upscale and Luxury hotels.

Operator Selection

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 ability in identifying the optimal occupational 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.

Development Consulting

Much of the data, information and analysis required to determine the correct form, type and size of development already exists within our firm. Our experience stems from our involvement in previous successful projects. However, it is often necessary to conduct more detailed, focused analysis – so we frequently provide bespoke research reports to help our clients make informed decisions.

Our dedicated Hospitality Research team works on strategic research reports, helping to coordinate Hotel Development Advisory work across EMEA.

How We Can Help

Brand Environment

The team prides itself on having the latest understanding of brand requirements across all key markets in Europe. This comes from regular interaction with the leading players and from a global network of colleagues introducing us to the latest hotel concepts from around the world. From independent hotel innovation to international brand evolvement, we lead the market with our understanding of client and project requirements.

Occupational Options

We focus on providing our clients with solutions that adapt to their very specific investment and occupational needs. Typically our key considerations include creating absolute value; de-risking a development, being able to expedite a sale and securing a high-quality hotel brand.

Development Finance

A successful development requires a stable, well structured capital stack and, working with our Hospitality Capital Markets team (link) and the firms Debt Advisory Platform, we support client in securing appropriate debt and equity.
