What we do

Holding the third largest portfolio in the UK retail park sector, and as a specialist property manager of retail and leisure, we leverage our expertise to deliver sustainable asset management strategies.

We are now successfully applying our focused placemaking and customer-led management expertise to our £2.3 billion Regional Retail Portfolio.

We have secured major planning consents for extensions at Princesshay and Silverlink, and strengthened the leisure and food offer across many of our assets. In parallel, we have taken advantage of favourable market conditions to sell more than £600 million of assets to reinvest in the next generation of best-in-class retail parks such as Banbury Gateway Shopping Park and in Rushden Lakes (in Northamptonshire), both with our partner LXB.

Our most ambitious retail scheme – the Westgate Shopping Centre in Oxford, a joint venture with Land Securities – is now under construction. This city centre project is anchored by a new John Lewis department store and is set to transform the city’s retail offer with 100 new shops, leisure space, and 25 new restaurants and cafés set amongst covered streets, arcades, lanes and squares. The joint venture has also acquired the adjacent Castle Quarter, further extending our role in Oxford’s retail renaissance.

We are part of a number of joint venture property partnerships across the UK, with our partners including Gingko Tree Investment Ltd and Land Securities. Across all of our portfolios we manage strategic joint ventures containing over £1.9 billion of our partners’ funds.

We’re also taking our award-winning Recruit London programme and launching Recruit Regional to connect local unemployed people with employers at our major regional retail parks.
