The Bridges Sustainable Property Fund is an entrepreneurial property fund that invests in properties in regeneration areas and environmentally sustainable buildings. It seeks to make property investments that have the potential to make strong financial returns as well as delivering social and environmental impact.
It builds upon Bridges Ventures’ track record of successful property-backed investment through its private equity funds in regeneration locations and sustainable business sectors. These include The Office, Smart Storage, The Hoxton, and Whelan Refining.
The Sustainable Property Fund will undertake transactions both directly and in joint venture with investment and development partners.
Regeneration – Projects will pass the initial regeneration screen if they are located in an eligible local authority (measured using the Index of Multiple Deprivation) and where Bridges Ventures can utilise its experience in investing in these locations to identify and implement management initiatives to enhance returns.
Environmentally sustainable buildings – Projects that are capable of demonstrating leadership and innovation incorporating environmental technologies and achieving excellent standards of sustainability.
The fund invests in all UK property sectors and will actively consider transactions relating to tenant-led development opportunities, mixed-use schemes, healthcare, student accommodation, business space and housing projects.
