Development projects on The Benyon Estate typically focus on converting our existing – often Victorian and Edwardian – building stock into premium office spaces. To date, our most ambitious development has been the conversion of a 1920s-era factory and warehouse into the De Beauvoir Block.

We are also involved in a joint venture project to build a new primary school building on Kingsland Road with a block of apartments, half of which will be made available to working Londoners on lower incomes.

At the same time, we’re constantly reviewing our inventory to make sure our buildings meet the standards and requirements for today’s residential and commercial tenants.

In 2017, The Benyon Estate created 30,000 sq ft of extra premium office space in De Beauvoir Town. By the end of 2018, a further 7,000 sq ft will be complete and ready for new tenants, with more in the pipeline.

Development opportunities

It's rare to find The Benyon Estate team without a development project in full swing. We are constantly refurbishing our residential portfoilio to ensure our properties are of the highest standard. Read more about what we're working on.

Current projects

Not only are we currently working on new developments, but from time to time we have opportunities that arise for joint venture partnerships and land sales. Click here to find out more. 

Future projects

We can't say too much, but what we can say is that we have some exicting developments in the pipeline.

While we rarely go out and buy sites, and aren’t looking to develop areas outside of the estate, we always keep our eyes open for new opportunities and are open to approaches from joint ventures and funding partners. 

Planning permission has been granted to transform a further former warehouse that we own at 100 De Beauvoir Road into 13,500 sq ft of top-quality office space. 

Additionally, we currently have a number of projects which are going through planning. Once planning permission has been granted, we’ll be announcing the schemes on our news page.

Finally, our in-house building surveyor assesses the condition of each and every property that we own on an annual basis with a view to refurbishing any that require attention.

Keep an eye on our News page to hear more as our developments progress.
