The Mactaggart Family & Partners Investment Committee and Advisory Board have extensive experience of investment in and the development, asset management, structuring and financing of a wide range of real estate in London, the wider UK and New York.
Principal activity, however, is focussed on direct investing in the office, retail, hotel and residential asset classes.
In addition to our current asset management and redevelopment initiatives across the London and New York portfolios, current activity includes the UK expansion of the majority owned The Resident group, investment with the UK planning and regeneration specialists First Base, enhancement of the 589 Fifth Avenue office tower in New York, containing H&M’s flagship store and our ongoing investment in the multi-family sector in Manhattan and Brooklyn, New York with Benchmark Real Estate Group.
As well as direct investments, the platform also invests in operating businesses where a large part of the aggregate EV of the company is made up by real estate.
Operational business investments include ventures in the beverage alcohol world, notably a new Irish single malt whiskey and a new rum in the Caribbean. We have highly experienced and best in class teams in place for both, off the back of the success of the Bruichladdich Distillery project in Islay, Scotland.
