A healthy mix of retail, office, leisure, residential and health is seen as the future for our high streets and retail destinations. The current environment is redefining “mixed use” development; shifting from single use with add-ons, to a truly vibrant destination that matches what the particular community – small or large – needs.Structural changes in the retail sector, driven by factors that include changing consumer behaviour, technology and rising costs, are speeding up the agenda. Constant attention is needed to repurpose what is on offer. The impact of COVID-19 has made the need for action more urgent. The right combination will vary from location to location. Responses will be individual not uniform, depending on a variety of dynamics - local land values, demographics and economy, for example. We have worked and are working on a variety of mixed use and repurposed schemes throughout the country; bringing together bespoke teams and developing bespoke solutions for each of our clients. Our experience and networks, in both the public and private sector, means that we can facilitate collaborative partnerships for our clients that acknowledge their different specialisms.
Dedicated experts in retail, leisure, health and commercial offices come together, a flexible combination that brings together their particular knowledge in support of every part of your plans.
