OVER the years, Galliard, which has its headquarters in Loughton, has become a byword for regeneration, rejuvenation and reinvention – and, since the business was founded over 25 years ago, we have built our reputation on acquiring sites in areas where there was little or no development – but great potential.
As a result of our forward-looking site acquisition policis and judicious identification of areas with outstanding possibilities, our investors have shared in our good fortune and experienced huge capital growth. Galliard locales, once unused, under-developed and with limited possibilities, have proved to be outstanding locations in which to own property, to live and to experience the very best of London.
In the early 1990s we helped pioneer the regeneration of London’s Docklands, whose development was then stalled by part-constructed schemes and buildings in receivership. Identifying its potential to be a great place to live (and invest in) we created landmark developments such as Papermill Wharf, Burrells Wharf, Great Jubilee Wharf and Millennium Quay. Our innovative designs retained all that was grand, traditional and timeless about these warehouses – yet we injected vibrant new style into these revered buildings, whilst also bringing new life into their surrounding streets.
In 1995, Galliard reinvented the South Bank as a desirable residential address. This was achieved via schemes such as the conversion and re-development of both County Hall and The Whitehouse Apartments, creating over 1,000 luxury homes. Long before the Tate Modern, the London Eye, the London Aquarium and myriad bars and restaurants arrived in this locale, Galliard had unlocked the potential of the area and had identified this as a superb location in which to invest.
What was once merely riverside Lambeth was now the highly fashionable South Bank, with the most enviable views in London. Galliard buyers who took the opportunity and invested just £99,000 in properties there now have homes worth £500,000. We also developed (in conjunction with Park Plaza) over 1,200 hotel rooms at the site of the County Hall, plus a new piazza with restaurants and shops.
In 1997, we helped to transform car parks and derelict warehouses adjacent to Butler’s Wharf into a premier riverside postcode, with schemes such as Spice Quay Heights, Tea Trade Wharf and Cayenne Court. We were able to spot the potential of these sites and, once again, we passed on a great opportunity to invest with us and achieve capital growth. Today these riverside addresses are world-famous for our mix of Victorian warehouse conversions and striking riverside architecture, with unrivalled views of Tower Bridge – plus they are just minutes from the City.
In 2013, we spearheaded the regeneration of the Greenwich peninsula, constructing Greenwich borough’s grandest riverside scheme to date. New Capital Quay is a brand-new waterside village of some 900 apartments, together with a new Waitrose and other shops, restaurants and cafés within three minutes’ walk of Greenwich old town, the Cutty Sark and the Docklands Light Railway.tspots
