    2020-01-15T13:52:00+00:00By Paul Wells

    Editor: With Savills predicting an increase in UK hotel market activity this year, perceived stability in the market and the continued growth of the international tourist and staycation market, hotels are not alone in recognising the opportunities current market conditions offer.

    More stable political climate will boost investment

    2020-01-15T14:26:00+00:00By Andrew Bruce

  • Nicola Sturgeon

    A second Scottish referendum remains unlikely

    2020-01-09T15:19:00+00:00By Richard Rennie

    Editor: Your post-election commentary highlights a “resurgent SNP” and pressure on Westminster to deliver another independence referendum.

As recently argued in Property Week, it does indeed look like we are on ...

    Winners and losers in flex space race

    2019-12-12T15:08:00+00:00By Adam Blaskey

    Editor: Adam Branson’s article shone a light on the recent trials and tribulations of some flexible workspace operators, including The Clubhouse, which I founded in 2012. While it is right to question the long-term viability of any rapidly expanding sector, Rome wasn’t built in a day.
