London Real Estate – The Next 5 years

The DeVono Cresa team were once again delighted to be involved with one of London’s premier commercial property events called the “London Real Estate Forum”. The annual event is held in the centre of Berkeley Square, Mayfair, London W1 and brings together the leading personalities and companies  within the London real estate sector.  It is an exhibition of the leading  development and investment opportunities across central London – both commercial and residential and includes significant developments across all 33 London boroughs.Real Estate Forum

Commercial property occupiers are rarely provided the platform to openly discuss their real estate opinions directly with London’s leading landlords.  DeVono Cresa therefore provided this opportunity, which was centred around two round table debates involving our occupier clients and exhibiting landlords.

The first debate was based on the London office market, conflicts of interest and the relationships between landlords and tenants. The landlords / developers involved in the debate included Lend Lease, Dukelease, TH Real Estate & CORE.Real Estate Forum 2

The second debate involved Derwent, Argent & Brookfield as well as ten retail & leisure DeVono Cresa clients including Whole Foods, Alan Yau restaurants, Foxtons, Abokado,
Pret a Manger, Corney & Barrow and Hawksmoor.  The conversation was extremely useful for our clients as it involved understanding how landlords factor retail & leisure into new developments and whether non-office space would become a greater part of their overall estate planning in the coming years.

Following this, there was a unique opportunity for our clients to be introduced to the development building pipeline that all the major landlords were exhibiting. This has led to various pre-let opportunities as well as a greater understanding of what the London skyline will look and feel like over the next 2 – 5 years.
