Foreword by Matthew Jay, Managing Partner
The first half of the year has been incredibly busy, and we are excited to share our latest construction update with you.
Despite uniquely challenging circumstances, we are pleased to report that substantial progress has been made on all sites and recently completed developments like AXIS and Manhattan have generated a huge amount of interest on the rental market.
Understandably, there have been questions from our clients regarding potential site stoppages due to the COVID-19 crisis over the past three months. However, the rapid adoption of new working practices, and the determined response from our teams on site, meant that we adapted almost immediately to the new situation.
This has given us a good foundation for the future, and we feel as a business that we are resilient and able to offer the same exceptional service as ever – no matter what challenges face us in the future.
We also managed to continue as closely to normal as possible in the rental market by working hard with our sister company Alliance City Living to provide a full range of virtual viewing technologies and rental incentives. This allowed us to keep momentum building and secure a good number of lets even when the rental market was temporarily closed. Since the government allowed the market to re-open, safe procedures have been implemented to allow in-person viewings to resume. The Alliance City Living team are inundated with viewing requests, and prospective tenants are being shown around our buildings every day.
Thank you for your support during this time – it means a lot to me personally and the whole company. If you would like to arrange a meeting or viewing via video chat, please get in touch with one of our team.
