Improving property and places

We aim to future-proof our properties and places through innovative solutions to ensure longevity and mitigate environmental risks. We strive to respond to specific local needs and seek to create and manage buildings and spaces that promote health and wellbeing.

To do this successfully, we combine a far-sighted, international perspective, with an intimate local knowledge of markets and communities.

We call this our Living Cities approach:

Far-sighted - we believe in learning from the past and in acting upon evidence-based research. By adopting a far-sighted perspective, we can better respond to the challenges that socio-economic and demographic change, environmental risk and technological disruption pose to urban communities.

Locally engaged - we promote local expertise to foster a deep appreciation and understanding of local markets and communities, engaging with them to implement bespoke and innovative solutions that are commercially successful and that respond to local needs.

Internationally experienced - whether working directly or in partnership with like‑minded co-investment partners, we capture, distil and share knowledge. This helps our people bring an international perspective to our activities, encouraging innovation we have successfully developed elsewhere.
