Northern Trust has extensive experience in the development of commercial and residential schemes and benefits from an in-house project management team.
The Company has a long history of working on residential schemes, and more recently commercial properties having developed over 2 million sq ft in over 40 locations across industrial, office and retail sectors. The development team has an established track record of speculatively developing employment schemes aimed at SMEs.
Northern Trust has also undertaken numerous capital projects covering a range of sectors including residential, commercial, retail and leisure. In addition the team has entered into residential partnerships/joint ventures and completed various major refurbishments.
The Development Division has broad knowledge of working with both the public and private sectors on sustainable mixed use brownfield developments, with many schemes benefiting from grant assistance from central government and the European Union.
Northern Trust actively seeks new industrial and office development opportunities throughout the UK for retention in the portfolio. The main geographical regions of interest are: North West, Yorkshire, North East, Midlands and Scotland. Northern Trust has the potential to look at acquisitions which require capital improvements and the Development Division continues to explore all avenues for site acquisitions, liaising with local authorities and development agencies to secure future development sites and possible public sector funding.
