NextGen Regeneration

How can we ensure regeneration continues throughout our cities, making them fit for the next generation?

The UK’s cities have seen a remarkable renaissance over the past two decades – but can it continue?

The regeneration model that has seen a boom in development across the major cities outside London is under duress. Hikes in construction costs and higher interest rates are threatening viability. Meanwhile, many inner cities and smaller towns – particularly in the North and Midlands – remain disproportionately deprived.

How can the Real Estate industry continue to contribute to the challenge of “Levelling Up” – perhaps the greatest opportunity not just for development and investment, but also to push the UK’s economy ahead of its competitors?

Meanwhile, the way we work, shop and live is continuing to change and cities and towns need to adapt – while at the same time improving the environmental performance and energy efficiency of the building stock.

JLL’s Nextgen Regeneration report examines these challenges and opportunities before looking at case studies from across the UK, Europe and the United States.

It sets out why regeneration projects are still a compelling proposition for investors and developers – while identifying the factors that can make the difference between success and failure, from longer-term local government strategies to the technicalities of financing and planning.
