£850,000.00 with a projected return of 25.5% ROI over 18 months. This £850,000 target is part of the first phase of a total raise for the project. The total raise for completion will be £2,848,800.  A minimum investment of £25,000 can be made into this development by purchasing shares in the projects SPV.  The GDV of Wolborough Street is  £10,143,400.00, and exit will be achieved through a yield-based sale to one of our institutional partners.

Wolborough Street is being constructed across four floors with commercial space available for rent in a proportion of the bottom floor (accessible by the main through-fares to the left and right of the building).  Throughout the remaining floors we have a range of one and two bedroom apartments designed to a stunning specification, with the high-quality, high-spec kitchen, bathrooms and living room fixtures and fittings provided by our partners.  Designing a living space which is a joy to reside in has been a priority throughout this project, with many apartments featuring their own private in-set balcony.
