We help domestic and international clients to invest, develop, lease and occupy out-of-town retail real estate around the UK.
Our knowledge of national, regional and local markets is invaluable in a highly competitive sector. It’s harnessed by our clients when deciding where to put down a new retail development. And we draw on it when advising on how best to capitalise on an area’s commercial opportunities.
Once a site has been selected, we guide our clients through the planning application process, advising them on strategies to pre-empt and sensitively handle local objections. We provide a full spread of services to steer a retail development project through to successful completion. Our end-to-end development consultancy incorporates masterplanning and scheme composition advice, development appraisals, buying the site, negotiating pre-let deals and, ultimately, full marketing of the completed scheme.
As well as helping with the sale or acquisition of stores, floorspace or land, we have consultants in strategic portfolio asset management – who cover lease renewals, re-gears, rightsizing and relocation. Our estate managers also run out-of-town retail sites around the country, ensuring efficient and effective day-to-day operations.
We’ve helped major companies such as Office Outlet, Lidl, ASDA, Costa Coffee, McDonalds, Network Rail, Tesco and Waitrose to find the right solutions to match their occupancy needs.
