We draw upon experience from right across the UK; from over 300 leasing instructions and 50 plus large projects at any one time. Our services for property owners include Leasing & Development Leasing, Asset Management, Lease Advisory Services, Asset Re-positioning and Purchase Support.
We don’t do the same old, same old. We add value to a client’s assets by taking a people-first approach to projects. And while retail remains central to what we do, increasingly shopping isn’t always the solution. We have diversified our business to provide a more comprehensive service to clients who understand that leasing should be driven by understanding what the consumer wants.
Our leasing activity extends to Medical Services, Cinemas, Shared Workspace, Hotels, Markets and Market Halls, Day Nurseries, Gym Space, Retirement Living, Veterinary Services, Library & Community Use Space, Food & Beverage and, of course, Shopping.
"These are challenging times for the retail property market. Under those circumstances you need a consultant that understands the structural changes taking place. The GCW team have become trusted advisers to us who can tap into a broad range of skill sets and experiences beyond retail to assist in identifying opportunities to help drive performance of retail assets."
Rupert Wood, Property Director, Asset Management
St Modwen Plc
"We have worked with GCW for many years and regard them as one of our trusted advisors. They have been instrumental in buying and selling key assets on our behalf and provide an invaluable leasing service in respect to several of our shopping centre projects."
Caitriona Hunter, Director
CBRE Global Investors
"GCW have been my principal retail adviser for over 25 years. I have always found them to be knowledgeable and, crucially, commercially astute. The advice I have sought has more recently morphed from finding tenants to full re-positioning strategies and they have given me an excellent service every time."
John Heller, CEO
London & Associated Properties Plc
"Many town centres are experiencing structural change, where very often traditional shopping is no longer the single dominant activity. This requires stakeholders and investors to think more creatively about their retail assets and their future roles. GCW have become trusted advisers to Benson Elliot on projects such as Vicarage Field, Barking and Quedam Centre, Yeovil, where we will be delivering mixed use urban regeneration projects over the next few years."
