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.

When Cowell Group acquired this property it was a Ground Floor and Basement unit let to Nationwide Building Society with three vacant floors of offices above but at that time the area had not started its regeneration. Nationwide vacated the property and we successfully rented the property to Costa Coffee. We achieved a change of use from commercial to residential including an extra floor and by reconfiguring the staircase area we were able to build nine flats. All the flats have been retained by Cowell Group and continue to be rented within the portfolio.

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.

A freehold block of seven apartments acquired in this prime tree-lined residential location. We purchased this property from receivers without the benefit of NHBC guarantees as a residential investment. Over a six month period we successfully carried out a redevelopment which enabled us to obtain the qualifying certificates so that the flats could be let on the open market.
