Commercial Property Development

In what is becoming an increasingly competitive sector, Creative Retail are able to offer guidance on all stages of the retail development process from initial appraisals and site sourcing through to pre-let tenancy agreements and exit strategy.

We work closely with private sector developers and investors and our in-depth knowledge of retailer requirements combined with our considerable experience with property transactions means that we are able to offer our clients an unparalleled service and a 360º appreciation of the workings behind the development process.

Commercial Property Investments

Detailed and up-to-the-minute knowledge has never been more important when formulating investment strategies for Retail and Leisure Property. The pace of change in the sector is ever increasing and strategies that worked just months ago may need adapting to extract best value and maintain exposure to risk.

When advising our clients on their investments, we report on a broad range of factors beyond the fundamentals of covenant, lease terms and physicality of asset. These include:

  • Occupiers changing requirements and business models
  • Tenants trading strength
  • Existing competition and proposed new occupiers and schemes in the locality
  • Inward investment into specific areas from regional funding, private equity and government initiative

We achieve this by leveraging the connections and relationships we have formed working exclusively in the retail and leisure sector.

Working collaboratively with Creative Retail we have been able to achieve excellent results across our portfolio in the Midlands. Creative Retail provide us with an unparalleled advice and service in this sector.
