The Mission
The Team

The portfolio of properties managed by the company, which was recently substantially reduced after a profitable disposal program, reflects strategic investment advice focused on the acquisition and asset management of properties with certain important characteristics and potential.

Location is of prime importance. All buildings in the portfolio are situated in town or city centre locations in Greater London, around the M25, or the South East, with a linking emphasis on transportation. Accessibility to the motorway system and the public transport infrastructure is considered a particular asset, with buildings often sited in close proximity to London Underground or mainline railway stations.

The character of the local area is an important factor. Buildings are often located near high-street retail, leisure and cultural facilities.

The potential of a property is the main focus. The company strives to maximise opportunities for investment return through the redevelopment or development of unutilised land at each property and/or to carry out major refurbishment to maximise value by finding the correct use to achieve this.

For Blackfriars Investments, each project is unique and the company is constantly exploring new approaches, from new-build, to refurbishment, to business development. The company works with a number of the most respected professional firms in their fields, including Dechert, Gordon Ingram Associates, Alsop Architects, Buro Happold, Sectorlight Sutton Young, CBRE and DTZ to name but a few.
