what we do

We are a property developer with a sole focus on a real estate disruptive innovation niche

. .'liquid modernity’ is the growing conviction that change is the only permanence, and uncertainty the only certainty . .

When we look at buildings, we see things that others don't

We build housing products around new ideas and innovative technologies where the space is a service and that rethink the way we live, work and play

We believe in creating a better, more productive and user-friendly urban environment product defined by the quality of the places we create, generating long-term value and having a positive impact on society

real estate disruption

  • 01 Urbanisation & population growth
  • 02 Future of the city
  • 03 Generation rent
  • 04 Rental housing as an institutional asset class
  • 05 Sustainable, smart & green buildings
01 Urbanisation & population growth
  • - We spend 90% of our lives inside buildings and by 2050 almost 70% of us will live in cities.
  • - Global megatrends are re-shaping the world economic order. From urbanization to the rise of the global middle classes, ageing population and technological trends, these changes all pose major implications for the built environment and demand for housing in the short- & long-term.
  • - Accommodate to changing demands created by demographic shifts requires new types of housing.
02 Future of the city
  • - Social Mobility and Digital Jobs
    The growing number of start-ups and new business, particularly in the tech, creative and science sectors is closely linked with the changing roles of cities.
  • - Loneliness
    Despite social media, studies show nearly 40% of young people experience periods of isolation and loneliness.
  • - Sense of Belonging
    Social links as living in a big city will be a key. In the past, all that was needed for people was to have a roof over their heads.
  • - Uberization
    Cities will become more important than nations. The biggest city will experience becoming more important than ownership.
  • - Space is a service
    Buildings will help people collaborate and create.
03 Generation Rent
  • - There is a whole new generation of global citizens growing up in the new economy, where experience is valued over ownership.
  • - Renting is no longer a stopgap before owning, it is now a choice and a long-term lifestyle.
  • - The changing labour market and the rising cost of housing have impacted upon young professionals who are now choosing to rent more than ever before.
  • - As a group their approach to living, working, and playing is impacting the way real estate is used.
04 Rental housing as an institutional asset class
  • - Digital, social, demographic, financial, environmental are making a tsunami of real estate disruption.
  • - The challenges experienced by the retail industry are just ripples on the shore of what is to come.
  • - A failure to recognise the extent and nature of these combined new risks is a significant risk to the real estate industry.
  • - The ability to manage disruption is what will de-risk the sector.
  • - In a world where interest rates have bottomed out and there is no more inflationary or yield-shift asset growth to expect, the main, the only driver of capital growth is rental growth.
  • - The value of a building in a low-growth environment can only be based on its real-world net income stream and reasonable expectations for the future thereof.
  • - Risk will in future be measured as the capability of both a building and its management to adapt to new and changing occupier needs rather than conform to planning use classes and investor asset classes.
  • - Alternative sectors and niche products are becoming increasingly popular with real estate investors looking for income-producing assets.
  • - Student housing has already matured as an asset class and it is now increasingly combined with co-living, mixing students with young professionals who are both interested in shared spaces and living in a community.
05 Sustainable, smart & green buildings
  • - The Real Estate sector is responsible for 40% of the world’s energy consumption and 1/3 of all greenhouse gas emissions.
  • - COVID-19 might change the cyclical demand for healthy and safe Real Estate, and wellness as well as a social equity cementing themselves as key components of sustainability.
  • - Consumers are now aware of the environmental conditions and demanding evidence of hygiene and safety of the places they live and work.

  • - No one size fits all
    Operators and providers cannot copy-paste a successful model and expect it to work in another place. Each community is unique in its needs, wants, and demands.
  • - We challenge the status quo
