The European portfolio comprises £4 billion (C$8 billion) of investments in core, value add and development properties. Following the opening of our London office in 2008 and our initial development of Watermark Place, the strength of our global platform and the expertise of our local team has helped Oxford Properties become a key player in one of the most competitive real estate markets in the world.
Our strategy and our approach are driven by our commitment to achieving consistent returns. Direct investments in core assets such as the Blue Fin Building, New Bond Street and King Edward Court, alongside asset management intensive stock such as Green Park, Reading are combined with strategic partnerships with leading players including The Crown Estate and British Land on renowned development projects including St James’s Market and The Leadenhall Building.
Through ongoing leveraging of our growing regional resource and our global platform we are targeting year-on-year European growth. Strategically, we are focused on building our direct development portfolio, which currently includes projects such as London Wall Place and The Post Building, as well as diversifying our sector specialisation, and entering into new investment locations and markets.
