Current Development Site Requirements

for retained developer clients.

Senior Property Associates, a development advisory business for the senior living and care home market, is focused on land and buildings with potential to provide new living accommodation for older people. 

Due to the synergy, we also advise on mixed use developments that include private residential and affordable housing, aparthotels, medical centres and associated uses, like food stores. Our time is evenly split between site disposal work for landowners and acquisition work for developers, operators and investors.
