We create urban destinations that inspire.
We are a fully-integrated real estate investment / development studio based in Soho, London. Backed by Brookfield Asset Management, we acquire, develop and / or reposition brownfield / greenfield sites, office reconversions and trading hotels into design-led destinations. Our current trading portfolio spans the United Kingdom and the Netherlands with a development pipeline in Ireland, France and Germany totalling £670mil+ ($935mil).
We believe that the modern traveller's needs are not being catered to. Our mission is to deliver unique experiences that meet these needs - with no two properties alike. Central to this mission is the discipline to deliver these experiences within a strict budget and programme and we hold our partners to the same standard. By fusing an unorthodox approach to design with a disciplined development methodology, we aspire to reshape hospitality.
