About us




About Us


  • Since 2009 we have concentrated on creating small co-investment vehicles for our own funds, alongside third party investors, prominently investing and developing in the UK. We are opportunistic in our approach and requirements, identifying niche markets where we can secure development sites and value-add projects with particularly well-priced planning, construction and leasing risk, usually with the opportunity to secure long-term pre-lets to strong tenants with a relatively quick turnaround; We always have the  ability to move uncommonly fast with a short decision making process and a nimble team. 

    When developing we often use Development Manager Partners, especially when they bring us the opportunity, funding and supervising with a light touch, to finesse their specialist skills and relationships to manage and minimise risk and to create maximum value.

     

  • We have a wide range of experience and are particularly comfortable with the energy, retail and restaurants, offices and residential sectors. But we welcome all ideas and partnerships, especially where our individual strengths and skills can be leveraged to mutual benefit.

    We are currently investing for 4 Funds:

    • FPC No.8
    • FPC Leinster Terrace
    • FPC Convenience No.1
    • FPC Industry & Enterprise

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

  • We are committed to undertaking pro-bono work, usually through the Ethical Property Foundation, and are equally keen to give smart advice when it’s free.
    The Ethical Property Foundation was set up in 2004 to offer charities, community groups and not-for-profits independent property advice. It has helped over 2,500 organisations to rent, buy, let or manage property. Stephen Lansman has been a member of their panel of pro-bono professional advisors since its inception.

    We are very proud of Land Aid, the initially tiny property based charitable trust we formed with our friends in 1988, which has since grown to a scale where it now aims to award grants of £1m per annum.

  • Our particular priority has always been to help people live normal lives, and fundamentally, and most closely linked to our business, we feel that is about helping people to have a decent home.
    We’re supremely proud of our roster of pro-bono clients, which includes Liberty Human Rights, Crisis, Centrepoint Soho, Amnesty International, Breast Cancer Care and St Mungo’s, together with many unknown organisations all striving to make the world a better place.
