Great Portland Estates

Great Portland Estates is a FTSE 250 Central London property investment and development company owning £3.6 billion of real estate, equating to 3.6 million square feet. 100% of the portfolio is within Central London.

Our portfolio is predominantly commercial, with approximately 71% of the portfolio office properties, 23% retail and the remaining 6% residential. We aim to deliver superior returns by unlocking the often hidden potential in commercial real estate in central London. Our integrated team is focused on meeting tenant's needs through repositioning properties in tune with London's property cycle.

Our approach to sustainability is an integral part of our business strategy, designed to address our material risks and enhance the long-term value of our business through responsible acquisition, development and management of our buildings to meet the needs of our key stakeholders.

Through our sustainability strategy we look to:

  • Create sustainable spaces and reduce obsolescence;
  • Manage sustainable spaces whilst meeting changing tenant needs; and
  • Enhance the way we work with our investors, the local community, suppliers and our people.
