Two bites of
We believe we are much more than just a commercial real estate business.
The underlying focus of the RO is always driven by a fundamental trading philosophy, and our corporate adage of being ‘In business to do business’ lies at the heart of everything we do. We have a deep understanding and awareness of the interests of all our business relationships be they tenants, advisers, institutions, suppliers or contractors. This can be instructive in developing better insights, becoming aware of potential problems at an early stage and finding opportunities that would not otherwise have come our way.
We take a long term view of property ownership and frequently review assets in our portfolio for potential alternative use to see if a ‘second bite of the cherry’ might be available.

UK wide competition delivering energy savings in commercial buildings.
We have entered two of our commercial, multi-tenanted developments; One Dorset Street, Southampton and GNR8, Watford into the CUBE competition, which is designed to bring landlords and tenants together to deliver energy savings in commercial buildings.

Fitwel certification provides best practices and guidelines that provide the roadmap for creating, constructing and operating healthy buildings.

Lytham St Annes
With a strong location underpinning the investment opportunity we were able to gain planning to add an extra floor to the building, convert the office space into a Travelodge hotel and considerably improve the value of the retail element by adding a M&S Simply Food and Costa to the parade.
