£ 0

Funds made available within Stages

A property investor based in Hong Kong saw the opportunity to purchase two Georgian townhouses in a prestigious location in Edinburgh. The properties were currently being used as office space, and the client had gained planning permission to convert the buildings into 11 luxury apartments.

The total conversion costs are likely to be in excess of £2million.

Lowry Capital has provided, to date, £1.3million in stages, in line with the client’s schedule of works. Many of the apartments have already been bought off plan. With prices starting at £455,000, the development has a GDV of circa £6million, proving to be a very lucrative project for the client.
