Residential Development

Our Residential team assists landowners, developers, investors and private individuals identify the challenges and opportunities presented by the evolving marketplace for residential property.

Unprecedented changes are happening in the residential property market. Its rapid pace is being fuelled by basic supply and demand dynamics, changes to economic and planning policies, a constantly evolving international marketplace and a crucial shift in attitudes to the sector, both as an asset and an investment class.

Today, two thirds of current investors are seeking to increase their exposure to residential property. Seismic changes in the way people now live, work and shop are having a huge impact on the fundamental makeup, design and tenure of new developments. Across the UK’s major cities, improved infrastructure and progressive design is breathing new life into old buildings, with previously unthought-of uses comfortably thriving side by side. These changes are having a profound effect on the residential real estate market and, in turn, on the advice we are giving to clients in master planning schemes, creating quality new places and optimising returns over time.

Our experts deliver keen market insights

We have a diverse range of projects, with the nature of our advice dependent on client and complexity, spanning from boutique developments to some of the largest, longest term regeneration projects in the country. However fast things are moving in the sector, our clients can rely on us to advise and guide them as their business plans evolve. This might include breaking down the latest planning policy, keeping pace with ever-evolving trends in specification, amenity and tenure, assisting with macro and micro market analysis or providing access to new capital from individuals and investors from every corner of the world.

Technology is fundamental to providing good advice. Whether partnering with exciting start-ups or building our own bespoke platforms, we seek to use every byte of the increasing quality and quantity of data in the sector. Only by doing so can we provide the insight and unearth the opportunities that differentiate us from the competition.
