Over the last four centuries, we have guided the evolution of some of the most celebrated urban neighbourhoods including Belgravia, Mayfair, and the city centre of Liverpool.

Today, an ever-growing share of the world’s population live in cities, and the economic, ethical and environmental challenges of urban land use are multiplying. In such a context, it is vital we learn from the evolution of these successful urban neighbourhoods – not only to secure their future, but to shape the cities of tomorrow.

We believe in investing in, developing and renewing places and neighbourhoods in partnership with existing communities.

Urban Neighbourhoods in Living cities

As we respond to the challenges and opportunities of tomorrow’s neighbourhoods, we have defined five principles that underpin and differentiate our approach to creating successful urban neighbourhoods which enable people to live well.

  1. We take a long-term approach – we make decisions for long-term value.

    That means we can offer a significant number of high-quality and well-managed homes for rent, helping to set a new standard for the build to rent sector in London.
  2. We are active stewards of our neighbourhoods – we ensure our urban neighbourhoods are great places to live for years to come.

    That could mean having a dedicated management team on site, who would take as much pride in their neighbourhood as the residents do.
  3. We mix uses to create resilient communities – diverse neighbourhoods are resilient – so we always encourage a mix of uses and a range of housing types. 

    That means that from the start we hope to have shops, schools and services that complement existing uses, and which generate opportunities for local people and businesses.
  4. We enable easy living – by creating more walkable neighbourhoods and ensuring local amenities truly serve the community, we can make the everyday lives of residents easier.

    That means that from the start we hope to have shops, schools and services that complement existing uses, and which generate opportunities for local people and businesses.
  5. We nurture a sense of belonging and community pride – when people feel proud of where they live, they look after it. They care for their neighbourhood and for their neighbours. The result benefits everyone.

    That means longer-term tenancies, investing in community facilities and being active members of community groups: encouraging social entrepreneurs and strong local partnerships.

We create great neighbourhoods where people want to live, work, learn and visit.
