Who we are

British Land – Developer
British Land plc owns a portfolio of office-led London campuses and retail destinations, located around the UK. These include Broadgate, London; Meadowhall, Sheffield and Canada Water, London.
Our approach towards creating high-quality places for our customers and the community involves bringing together our skills in placemaking, sustainability and technology and responding towards the changing way people use our space. Our places serve local communities, provide opportunities for skills development and employment and promote wellbeing. 2019 was our third year holding the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, the UK’s highest business accolade, recognising our economic, social and environmental achievements across our portfolio.
Our strategy is to build an increasingly mixed-use business, which will comprise of three core elements – our London campuses, a smaller, more focussed Retail portfolio and residential. By creating vibrant mixed-use neighbourhoods we can drive enduring demand for our space, support rental growth and create long-term value for all our stakeholders.
Our portfolio is valued at £16.2bn (British Land share: £12.3bn) as at 31 March 2019 making us one of Europe’s largest real estate investment companies.
