Building a brighter future.
Strong roots and wings.
As a family-owned, real estate development and investment business with our roots firmly entrenched in the North of England, we have always held a strong desire to see the UK’s former industrial heartlands transformed back into the vibrant communities that they once were.
Act local, think global.
History and heritage.
Our roots can be traced back to the mid-1970’s when our Founder and Chairman, Kevin McCabe formed his first property corporation, County Properties. Since then, we have grown into a global organisation with an award-winning portfolio of mixed-use projects.
