BPF Futures Challenge: young professionals pitch high street ideas

BPF Futures Challenge

The BPF Futures Challenge asked some of the best young talent in the real estate industry to suggest ways to breathe life into the town centre of Hyde in Greater Manchester.

In a bid to come up with some answers, the British Property Federation (BPF) brought together more than 80 young real estate professionals last month to brainstorm ideas as part of the BPF Futures Challenge.

The initiative, which was organised by the BPF, the Local Government Association, the Office of Government Property and U+I, saw 12 teams pitch innovative suggestions to revive the town of Hyde, in Tameside, Greater Manchester, to a panel of judges.

The winning submission focused on bringing a “healthy heart back to Hyde” by creating a consolidated central hub in the town centre alongside public-private partnerships to create a “collective-based model”.
