ARC is a family-run and privately owned property development company based in Marylebone. We deliver design focused schemes in London for both home and working environments.
"Epitomising our ethos of extracting value, we recognise that from adversity comes opportunity."
History in the Making
Our first steps into the London residential property market were ostensibly made in the worst possible economic circumstances - directly following the collapse of the Lehman Brothers and in the midst of the worst recession in 80 years. Following one well considered purchase, our passion quickly turned to success.
Our close-knit family team soon extended beyond our corporate structure to include our private backers and preferred partners, with whom we enjoy close, strong relationships to this day.
"Diversification was sought into areas of value and growth underpinned by domestic demand"
The Creation of ARC
In early 2014, following successful developments in Marylebone and Mayfair, we felt the Prime Central London market was overcrowded and overheated.
Whilst retaining a presence in Hampstead, a shift in strategic focus was tested via a joint venture in Brixton and the purchase of a brownfield site in Crouch End, to ensure our skills and experience in the luxury residential market could translate. Success in both meant our strategy was executed in full by the end of 2014.
In 2015, we took the next inevitable step, diversifying further with a purchase in Hackney to provide innovative new workspace to create employment, alongside high quality new homes.
"A simple, no-nonsense approach to development and investment."
Integrity with True Design Intent
Our fluid and nimble structure, complimented by a team of professional partners, means we can think and move fast. Fastidious preparation and review throughout the development process ensures the accuracy and excellence we are known for.
At ARC we are of the strong belief that our backer’s requirements are not at odds with the people who buy our homes or work in our office space, and that with a commitment to robust financial modelling, integrity and true design intent we can more than satisfy both. This principle is evident in everything we do and will remain so at all times.
