About the Sponsors
Londoners make this city one of the finest places to live in the world and Anthology works closely with the local communities where we develop our properties. At Anthology, we are experts in real estate. Our people have vast experience in all areas of this dynamic industry, including construction, land acquisition, design, development, contracting and marketing. But above all, our people are committed to innovation and customer service and it's these elements that underpin the company's ethos. Anthology is backed by Oaktree's European Principal Group.
Ballymore is a developer with vast and varied experience, acknowledged as pioneers of some of Europe’s largest regeneration projects. Today, we remain 100% owned and managed by Sean Mulryan and his family, who founded the business, in Ireland, in 1980. We work in complex urban settings both new and old. In emerging markets, we create transformation and opportunity with ambitious mixed-use developments like Eurovea in Bratislava and we carry out sensitive modernisation in established and historic cityscapes like Old Spitalfields Market in the City of London. Our development vision is creative, carefully executed and broad in scope, from five-star hotels in Prague to housing developments in Greater Dublin. We’ve created and delivered corporate headquarters for KPMG and Barclays Bank PLC, and our developments at Pan Peninsula and Providence Tower in London have established two of Europe’s tallest residential addresses. Ballymore takes its responsibility as a place maker very seriously, putting quality of life and a connection to arts and culture at the core of our work. We’re currently developing new headquarters for the English National Ballet and London Film School on London City Island, our groundbreaking project just south of Canary Wharf. We worked alongside the US government to move their embassy from Grosvenor Square to Embassy Gardens at Nine Elms, establishing a new riverside cultural district for the city and signalling a major shift in London’s diplomatic centre of gravity. Today, we are one of London and Dublin’s most active property developers with over 5,500 people engaged at every level on current projects. We completed c.2000 homes in London in 2016, and 7,000 more are currently under-construction with forward sales of c.£2.6bn. Our land bank gives us the capacity to add a further 9,000 homes to meet future demand. We’re also developing significant corporate estates, with 1 million sq ft under construction in Birmingham, Dublin and London.
Berwin Leighton Paisner LLP is a premier, full-service law firm headquartered in the City of London. We offer pragmatic, commercial legal advice that helps major public and private companies, financial institutions, public sector bodies and private clients to achieve their goals. Our service extends to over 65 jurisdictions, with offices in Abu Dhabi, Beijing, Berlin, Brussels, Dubai, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, London, Moscow (Goltsblat BLP), Paris, Singapore and Yangon. Our distinctive approach has seen BLP receive 8 Law Firm of the Year awards since 2004 and, in 2015, named a top-five 'legal game changer of the last decade' by the Financial Times. Our planning team has been rated number one in the legal directories for over 15 years and our unrivalled strength and depth ensures that we are able to mobilise resources, create and commission work and exercise influence well beyond the scope of other legal planning practices. Our clients range from property companies, developers, local and central government to utility companies and major infrastructure providers. We have been involved in many of the biggest and most innovative schemes in the UK, including the Shard, Liverpool One, the Olympic Park, the "Walkie Talkie" and the Dome.
GL Hearn, part of Capita Real Estate & Infrastructure, is one of the UK’s leading property and planning consultancies providing commercially driven advice to developers, investors, occupiers and public sector clients and partners. London development is one of our core areas where we advise in all 33 boroughs including GLA/TFL, across a wide range of commercial sectors. We recognise that the opportunities, challenges and complexities in London are unique and offer strategic insights to shape development and deliver place-based strategies. We are development enablers who provide innovative and enterprising advice by bringing together our specialist skills to enhance value reaching back into our wider capability and capacity provided by our multi-faceted Capita parent company. Local knowledge is key to our approach and we pride ourselves on our extensive and effective relationships with key stakeholders across the capital. This is typified by our ground-breaking research on planning performance in London, undertaken with the private and public sectors, and our annual tall buildings research.
We are Historic England, the public body that looks after the historic environment. We champion historic places helping people to understand, value and care for them, now and for the future. We manage the National Heritage List for England: from its origins in 1882, it has grown to include almost 400,000 items ranging from prehistoric monuments to office blocks, battlefields and parks. They all benefit from legal protection. We give constructive advice to local authorities, owners and the public: each year we give advice on more than 20,000 applications for planning permission or listed building consent. We help make sure that threats to our heritage are understood, so policies, effort and investment can be targeted effectively. We find approaches to prevent heritage at risk and tackle it as a priority: last year, we provided £14.26 million in grants to reduce the amount of heritage at risk. We open up heritage for everyone, using digital resources, media campaigns, publishing, public information and exhibitions. Our Archive provides access to over 12 million photographs and records about our historic environment.
Hogan Lovells has an acknowledged market leading planning team, with diverse experience across the entire spectrum of planning related issues. We have a pre-eminent reputation for development and regeneration including, in particular, mixed use developments and complex brownfield and greenfield sites. Our involvement covers all stages of development proposals, from negotiations on planning and related agreements to advising on appeals and statutory challenges. Our planning team has been consistently rated as a leading firm in the Legal 500 and Chambers directories. Commentators note that we are “rock solid and innovative" (Legal 500 2016) and "super performers – exactly what any major, switched on property company would want when they’ve got a really difficult project" (Chambers 2017).
Land Securities is the UK’s largest listed commercial real estate company. Our £14.4 billion portfolio totals 23.6 million sq. ft. and includes some of London’s most desirable office buildings and the UK’s most successful shopping and leisure destinations. A world class, high quality developer of mixed use developments in London, ours is a strong heritage and presence in the capital. Land Securities is currently transforming the area around Victoria Street into a place for Londoners to enjoy, people to visit and a place that businesses and individuals are proud to call home.
Mount Anvil’s vision is to be Central London’s most respected residential-led mixed-use developer. This year, we celebrate 25 years of building homes and communities across London through partnership. We have evolved significantly over the past 25 years, however our core values have remained constant: work collaboratively, raise the bar, do the right thing. To support our approach, we choose to work with world-class architects and consultants, and source the best materials from across the globe to ensure our developments are of exceptional quality, in outstanding locations. With an unrelenting focus on our people, we believe that our owner-managed ethos gives a substantial advantage in recruiting and retaining increasingly capable people. The results are clear: three consecutive years as the UK’s Number One Company for Health and Safety; three consecutive years as RESI Developer of the Year; ten years in a row as one of the Sunday Times Best 100 Small Companies to Work For (2007 – 2016); a truly owner-managed business, over 90% of our 180 people are shareholders in the company. London is ever-changing and we’re proud of the role we’ve played over the last 25 years in creating homes and communities which enhance its world-class status.
Turley is a planning consultancy in London for London. We are passionate about London. We are driven both by the opportunity to creatively shape our great City and by our long term physical and socio-economic legacy.
