Cambridge Focus

The GCR team have built a strong presence in Cambridge with an enviable deal flow. The focus on Cambridge is driven by a desire to be undertaking property transactions in a location where the dominant economic activities are those in which the UK has a position as a global leader. Cambridge is home to Europe’s largest cluster for life sciences and technology. The city is a leader in innovation in these sectors but has very limited supply of property coupled with high demand.

Deal Flow

Cambridge has long been a city characterised by extremely tight supply. This has been compounded by the historic character of the city which rightly affords protection to the character of the area providing limitations in certain locations. In addition there has been dominant ownership of real estate throughout the city by the University meaning that property suitable for development trades hands less frequently than would otherwise be the case. Our team have a proven ability to unlock supply having established a solid reputation amongst the local agency network as being a reliable and informed buyer. The acquisition of new opportunities arises through deep local connections and on the ground work to identify suitable projects.

Due Diligence

We have specific expertise in our field. We have strong knowledge in planning policy both at national and local level. Camprop Construction is in related ownership providing real time and unfettered access to data on construction costs. We benefit from in house legal counsel leading our work with some of the best law firms in the field. We have an established team of local professionals with whom we have a regular working relationship which provides us with swift access to opinions and expertise in the assessment of potential acquisitions leading to an ability to make rapid but well informed decisions.


Our team are experienced in establishing bespoke structure to meet the needs of both domestic and cross border investors.
