British Land is one of Europe’s largest publicly listed real estate companies. We own, manage, develop and finance a portfolio of high quality commercial property, focused on retail locations around the UK and London offices. We have total assets in the UK, owned or managed, of £19.7 billion (of which British Land share is £14.4 billion), as valued at 30 September 2015.
Our Office and Residential portfolio, which accounts for 45% of our portfolio, is focused on London. We have an attractive mix of high quality buildings in well managed environments and a pipeline of development projects which will add significantly to our portfolio.
Development forms a key part of our business and we have an exceptional track record in delivering large scale, best in class schemes. Since 2004, we have completed over 5 million sq ft of developments, predominantly in Central London, including The Leadenhall Building, 10 Portman Square and 39 Victoria Street; and in the last two years have committed to a further 1.5 million sq ft of new developments.
Our customer orientation enables us to develop a deep understanding of the people who use our places. We employ a lean team of experts, who have the skills to translate this understanding into creating the right places, and we have an efficient capital structure which is able to effectively finance these places.
Our size and substance demands a responsible approach to business. We believe leadership on issues such as sustainability helps drive our performance and is core to the delivery of our overall objective of driving shareholder value and creating Places People Prefer.
People have a choice where they work, shop and live and we aim to create outstanding places which make a positive difference to people’s everyday lives. We do this by focusing on Places People Prefer.
