We have a wealth of experience and substantial funds available to purchase a wide range of assets.
Our current requirements:
When we acquired this 6,000 sq.ft property on a competitive basis in 2017 it was divided into 11 self-contained studio flats. We immediately saw its potential, and worked with architects to create an additional 3,450 sq.ft of usable space. Alongside a new basement and an extra storey, we inserted a new steel frame within the building to support new mezzanine floors. The final result was 15 new self-contained flats for rental which have been retained within the Cowell Group portfolio.
The Cowell Group recognised the Archway Campus as a site of great interest which at the time of inspection had D1 use with limited potential.
After inspecting the site we understood that with the correct scheme there was huge potential for a residential development with the various buildings on the property comprising in excess of 180,000 sq ft.
Cowell Group were offered the opportunity to acquire the whole of St John’s Wood High Street, which comprised of an unbroken parade of 17 properties including 26 shops, 4 offices, 36 residential flats with assured shorthold tenancies, 29 flats sold on long leases, a gym and 16 parking spaces. Despite market instability caused by the UK banking crisis, Cowell Group had the confidence and ability to navigate and successfully complete the acquisition of the owning entity’s share capital.
Cowell Group successfully acquired this redundant warehouse in trendy Shoreditch – formerly a stable for the Stag Brewery. The building had been used as artist studios and backed onto a busy railway line, and despite the site’s complexities we worked with consultant architects and engineers to secure planning and Railtrack consent for a 144-bed hotel with retail and restaurant use.
Thanks to our excellent track record and connections, we won a competitive tender to work alongside The Guinness Partnership to develop 64 apartments. Social housing units are retained by The Guinness Partnership, while Cowell Group have designed 28 high end luxury apartments. We achieved record prices per square foot on the sale of the flats, and continue to manage the block where were are currently carrying out further development.
A long leasehold store acquired with French Connection for future rent review and investment purposes. This was acquired by Cowell Group investors.
Cowell Group acquired two unmodernised properties by private treaty on one of Hampstead’s most sought after streets, the old houses were being used as offices by a well-known charity.
The charity remained in situ for two years while it developed a new headquarters building, after which time we successfully obtained planning consent for two homes.
After vacant possession planning was required to regulate the position and the offices were converted into 2 super luxurious high end houses.
“I have known and worked with the Cowell Group for a number of years and all our dealings have to date been honourable, fair and enjoyable. What has always been apparent is their ability to secure and work a transaction through a commercial approach (by Nicholas and Adrian and their extended team) that creates added value to the assets they look to acquire and/or manage and/or in which they are otherwise involved. A good example of such approach was borne out on the development site in which they were involved at St Edmunds Terrace, St John's Wood which was acquired from the Guinness Trust.”
