Over the past 10 years East London has emerged as a vibrant market for both property development and investment. Having been involved in the region for over 20 years, the team at CBRE has been instrumental in shaping the area. As a key property adviser to The London Development Agency in relation to the London 2012 Olympic Games bid, the team was involved in over £500m of land and property acquisition, and the purchase of land for the development of in excess of 1,000,000 sq ft of relocation space.
Our team of professional, development, agency and local government experts collaborate to provide innovative solutions for clients, ensuring the agendas of the wide range of public and private sector stakeholders are met.
