Blend Property UK is a privately owned real estate investment and asset management business based in central London. Founded in 2011 to focus exclusively on the UK market, with a primary focus on the office, industrial and retail sectors. Key to this is the mandate for Blend to build a quality investment portfolio of properties which deliver consistent growth and income with further value add potential. The target has been to grow the portfolio through a diverse mixture of asset classes throughout the country, recently culminating in the acquisition of a permitted development scheme in Brighton for the conversion of an office into 53 residential units. The Blend UK team are committed to a pro-active approach, working in close partnership with tenants and partners to create and maintain facilities which ensure that core business needs are met. Blend Property is already a well established business in South Africa (www.blendproperty.co.za) with gross assets in excess of R2bn and more than 200,000 sqm (2,150,000 sq ft) of lettable space.
