      Pre-let and Speculative Development

      By combining our investment and development expertise with deep market intelligence, we provide timely access to real estate projects with impressive projected returns, ahead of the construction phase.

      You may be planning to unleash the potential of your development proposal or seek a sustainable investment with a long-term income. Our role is to put the right opportunity and tenant in front of you

      Matching developers with funding forms a big part of our acquisition and disposal work across the buoyant Oxford to Cambridge Arc and the wider East Anglian market.

      We stay on top of opportunities to ensure developers and funding partners are matched to the right deals. Investors covet pre-let development opportunities because they provide certainty, require less active management and tend to offer fixed rental uplifts over the course of the term.

      Cambridge and Oxford both feature on the shortlist of locations outside London where speculative development can be considered. Our combined expertise helps willing investors secure brand-new developments at city centre and science park locations in these fast-growing city economies.

      We’ve now agreed more than £600m of funding at Cambridge's CB1 development, with Amazon and Samsung letting space in hi-tech buildings designed to their specification and taking up brand new space for future-shaping research
