Development and Placemaking Advice

We are extremely proud to be involved in some of London’s newest retail and leisure developments.  We will work closely with you in forming a vision for the development and then brief your architects accordingly to ensure the design matches that vision, and most importantly matches the needs of the eventual tenants.

Through our many years of experience, we have created a development advisory system that links design directly to forecast financial performance.  Projects include Spitalfields (70,000 sqft); The Goodsyard, Shoreditch (200,000 sqft); Morden Wharf, Greenwich Peninsula (60,000 sqft); The Brentford project (150,000 sqft); London City Island (30,000 sqft); Embassy Gardens, Battersea (50,000 sqft); Riverside Kingston (30,000 sqft); Hawley Wharf, Camden (100,000 sqft).

As a result, we are proud to have advised some of the greatest and most inspirational developers currently operating in London such as Derwent London, Hammerson Plc, U+I, Ballymore Group, Sellar Developments.

In order to deliver a successful development, it is essential to seek early advice.
