Refurbishment or new build

Our development finance products are designed to support established developers purchasing assets for residential and mixed-use schemes. These fall into two categories - heavy refurbishment and ground-up development.

  • Heavy refurbishment
    Where the developer is looking to make changes to the use or the size of an existing building.
  • Ground up development
    Where the developer is looking to purchase land, or demolish an existing building and replace with a residential or mixed-use scheme.
