Business developing as HDD moves to new city HQ
Henry Davidson Developments (HDD) has completed the relocation of its headquarters to Birmingham and has quickly capitalised on the city’s booming commercial property market.
The ambitious property developer – which specialises in retail-led, mixed use developments – is expanding its operations after relocating from Nottingham with support from Finance Birmingham.
The company has moved its team to St Philip’s Point, enjoying panoramic views of the city centre from its top floor offices. Clearly visible are cranes at major construction projects including Paradise and 3 Snowhill.
HDD managing director Scott Davidson said:
“It’s great to have completed our relocation into the heart of Birmingham’s central business district. There’s so much development activity it feels like the city is really on the crest of a wave. Within just a few days of moving here our eyes have been opened to the numerous possibilities there are in Birmingham.
“Nottingham has been a fantastic place for us from which to establish and grow our business. However, for us to expand and accelerate our growth further it was vital that we move to a city with a large agency base with national commissions. The opportunities here in Birmingham are very exciting and we are already reaping the rewards with several new projects in the pipeline.”
“We are determined to expand the business but to do that we need to recruit the very best, highly experienced property professionals. In a highly competitive market, it can be difficult to find the right people. We only want to recruit people of the highest quality and Birmingham offers us the chance to do that.”
HDD is currently delivering major retail led mixed use developments across the UK, including Didcot in Oxfordshire, Newton Leys, at Milton Keynes, and Hampton at Peterborough and the final phase of Lawley Village in Telford.
HDD’s growth aspirations have been supported by Finance Birmingham’s regional mezzanine fund, supported by the Regional Growth Fund on behalf of the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership.
Nick Oakley, head of property investments at Finance Birmingham, said:
“We are delighted to support HDD in both their move to Birmingham and also their exciting growth aspirations, they are a dynamic property development business with an excellent track record of delivery. We look forward to helping them continue their growth over the years to come.”
