The Team

We breathe new life into overlooked or underinvested commercial land and properties in Ireland, creating high-quality, flexible spaces with a bespoke mix of facilities. Our investment approach is strategic, not tactical or speculative. We are selective in choosing locations, and always focused on creating great working environments for our tenants and their employees.

Our highly experienced team has a proven track record of delivering results that help our tenants create a modern, productive environment. Our success is underpinned by always listening to our tenants, and providing them with the best possible care and high-quality facilities, tailored to their specific needs. This focus helps us to deliver a consistent return for our long-term investors.
