About us

We are an independent real estate company with an impressive reputation for delivering high-quality urban developments in the UK’s leading towns and cities.

Since our inception in 2000 we’ve been committed to three key principles –  partnership, innovation and exceptional design – which are all evidenced throughout our extensive portfolio.

An established history of creativity

Our reputation as a trailblazer in multi-partner developments stems from over 20 years in delivering some of the most innovative, memorable and bold concepts in regeneration across the North West, Yorkshire and the North East.

Demonstrating a high level of skill and ability in delivering mixed-use developments, our portfolio boasts 20 leading projects, comprising 3.75 million sq ft of floorspace and generating an end value of £1.45 billion. 

Our reputation has been built through the successful delivery of complex, large scale projects that may cause other developers to walk away. Our in-house team has the capability and determination to drive a project from inception to completion, and by effectively managing external professional experts, enables the successful and profitable delivery of a range of buildings and places.

“We are delighted to be partnering with the Ask team to help bring to fruition their exciting development programme and to support them in new ventures.”
