The High Street Group is one of the UK’s most successful privately owned businesses. It operates companies in Private Rental Schemes, Property Development and Construction and Hospitality, offering expertise and opportunities across multiple sectors.
Since its inception in 2006, The High Street Group of Companies has successfully developed and operated businesses covering Debt & Wealth Management, Financial Claims and Business & Developer Finance. The Group’s management team have decades of experience in the property and financial industries.
In 2014, we steered the Group into the property investment and development sector, and quickly became one of the fastest growing residential developers in the North East, with almost 200 homes under construction, all built to an exceptionally high standard. Our flagship project, Larbert House & Country Estate has already won a handful of awards and our development company, All Saints Living, was accredited with the Best Medium Sized Builder at the Real Estate & Property Awards.
We are now specialising in three fundamental development sectors: Private Rental Sector schemes, traditional residential development and hospitality in the form of hotels, bars and restaurants with a fourth, Rooftop Extensions, being planned for later this year.
The Group’s core focus is on the growth of our large scale building and property portfolio and the long term opportunities and potential of the Private Rental Scheme (PRS) sector through our Build to Rent property company, High Street Residential. Our PRS pipeline is currently estimated at £500m, with our first forward-funded scheme on site in Milton Keynes, with an institutional sale agreed with Grainger PLC. This is one of only two Grainger purchases in the UK in 2017.
We have also commenced the construction of Hadrian’s Tower in Newcastle, which will be the tallest building in the city at 26 storeys high and 162 apartments. We have many more upcoming projects in city centres, including Birmingham and Manchester, where there is a demand for quality apartment living.
Our development company, All Saints Construction, continues to grow from strength to strength, procuring land and developing new homes under our All Saints Living brand in key locations in the UK, as well as securing tenders for external clients across the North East.
High Street Hospitality has an aggressive strategy to purchase, renovate and manage 15-20 hotels in the next 5 years, and is moving rapidly ahead with this target and building the Hotel 52 brand with our first two operational hotels in 2017, four more in the pipeline in 2018. Each of our establishments has on site dining in the form of Loca or Pazzo, our exciting restaurant chains, and 2018 sees the launch of Bar 52, with the first being in Whitley Bay.
The High Street Group has expanded rapidly, now employing more than 100 people across the Head Office in Newcastle upon Tyne and development and hospitality sites in the UK. Reported profits for 2016 were £26 million.
A combination of the Group’s financial strength, sector expertise and relationships create a strong position from which we can explore opportunities and achieve our aspirational long-term goals and objectives.
