Development Consultancy and Leasing

At its core is a focus on deliverability grounded in a deep understanding of the occupational and funding markets combined with strategic and creative thought.

Our experienced development team works in an advisory or project management role taking the construction of new stores from concept through to practical completion. The team specialise in the creation of structured landowner partnerships and joint ventures, site identification and assembly, feasibility and viability exercises, the master planning of existing assets, new projects, and the securing of Agreements to Lease with anchor foodstore tenants taking the project through the town planning system.

The team is able to draw upon wide ranging skills and knowledge across JLL particularly relevant to food store led mixed use schemes, the increasingly important relationship between the private and public sectors, and the demand to deliver sustainable development.
