In the first of our Investment Insights podcast, Scott Tyler, Alex Butler and Michael Linane from our commercial and residential investment teams look at current themes affecting their markets.

In this short podcast they discuss if the commercial and residential sectors are aligning and what the blurring of the lines means for mixed-use assets. The podcast covers topics such as:

  • The effects of Permitted Development Rights (PDR)
  • The surge in sales of vacant department store units on the high streets and what this means for reimagining retail
  • Landbanking of commercial assets by residential developers for income and future residential development
