Robert Shepherd, InterContinental Hotels Group

Tell us about your brands and what they represent.

IHG’s nine hotel brands are InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts, Hotel Indigo, Holiday Inn Hotels & Resorts, Holiday Inn Express, Staybridge Suites, Candlewood Suites, EVEN Hotels and HUALUXE Hotels & Resorts. Our hotels are some of the best-known and most popular in the world, ranging from luxury hotels in the world’s major cities and resorts to reliable family-oriented hotels.

 

Which countries is the Group focusing on at the moment and why?

Germany, Russia and the UK are our three priority markets in Europe. We expect the majority of our growth to come from our midscale brands–Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express. Multiple development agreements are working particularly well in Germany and Russia and towards the end of 2013 we signed our sixth MDA in Germany. In Russia, our ambition is to have 100 hotels open or signed in the development pipeline by 2020. We have spent some time building the necessary infrastructure to allow us to identify great partners and I expect to see that coming through as more signings. In March 2013, we signed a multiple development agreement for 15 Holiday Inn Express hotels in Russia, the first of which will open in just a few months. 

 

We are focused on increasing the number of franchised and managed hotels we have. Our hotel development pipeline is the industry’s second largest, with more than 1,100 hotels. We have prospered during the economic downturn, delivering consistent high-quality growth, and we are looking forward to what 2014 holds.

 

What are your main criteria and standards when developing new properties?

Developing and opening hotels means long-term responsibility for owners and operators. Whether our relationship is under a management contract or franchise agreement, we are looking for the commitment and financial stability to see a project through, and for the right kind of knowledge, passion and experience to make it a success. We have a rigorous approach to every new hotel development and we are able to bring to bear the considerable weight of resources we have to ensure our owners are supported in making commercially sound choices. Our ultimate ambition will always be a great new IHG-branded property and a thriving business proposition for our partners.

 

What are the new trends in hotel management and operation?

Our recent report, ‘Creating Moments of Trust–the key to building successful brand relationships in the Kinship Economy’ explores the transition from brand experiences to brand relationships in the hospitality sector. Travelers’ expectations of tailored experiences at every touch-point are increasing. Nearly three in five travelers (59%) are saying their hotel stay is significantly more comfortable if services are personalized and more than half (54%) admit it makes them feel more valued.

 

The management effort is all about hiring the right people with the right skills and personalities, who are fully committed to delivering great service, particularly for the upscale and luxury segments. For other segments, there is a focus on efficiency and allowing the customer to make the most of their time–and this is where technology is revolutionizing the way we operate. We are actively looking for new solutions to improve the guest experience in our hotels. We currently have over 14 customer-facing mobile apps that aim to improve and speed up the check-in experience, while still providing guests with outstanding service.

 

What are the main challenges of operating hotels in different regions and countries? 

IHG operates across four regions: the Americas, Europe, Asia, Middle East & Africa (AMEA) and Greater China, which brings a wealth of cultural differences. The challenge is actually a great opportunity, provided we find the right people. We are uniquely placed to understand the needs and desires of people from all over the world. It requires leaders with an open mind, wide geographical experience and the willingness to work with people from all walks of life, something we are very proud of at IHG. Our research concluded that travelers from emerging markets (Brazil 68%, UAE 60%, and China 58%) choose global hotel brands because they feel they are considerate to local tastes, customs and cultures.

C&W represents Millennium Partners in landmark retail lease to Primark (US)

Cushman & Wakefield announced today that it represented Millennium Partners in a long-term retail lease with Primark, a leading European fashion retailer, at the Millennium Tower/Burnham Building in Boston’s famed Downtown Crossing.

 

Primark will lease a total of 112,000 ft² (approx. 10,405 m²) on four floors in the 8-story Burnham Building of which 70,000 ft² (approx. 6,503 m²) will be selling space. The transaction follows the recent leases to Havas Media/Arnold Worldwide and Roche Bros. market. The renovation of the Burnham Building, originally completed in 1912 for Filene’s Department Store and the only structure in Boston designed by legendary Chicago architect Daniel Burnham, began in summer 2013 and will be completed in 2015.

 

The restoration is part of Millennium Partners’ $689 million (approx. €498.5 million) redevelopment plan for the vacant site of the former Filene’s Department Store. Adjacent to the Burnham Building, Millennium Tower is a striking 625-foot new building currently under construction with its first occupancy scheduled for the summer of 2016. Millennium Tower will have 68,000 ft² (approx. 6,317 m²) of flagship retail space offering the most visible and modern retail space in Downtown Boston.

 

“Primark’s commitment along with the prior lease to Roche Bros. market for 37,000 ft² (approx. 3,437 m²) signifies that the retail leasing effort at Millennium Tower/Burnham Building has created a retail revolution in the city of Boston,” said Cushman & Wakefield Vice Chairman Gene P. Spiegelman. “Notably, both transactions represent new entrants to the City of Boston and its historic Downtown.”

 

Cushman & Wakefield was the sole brokerage firm in the transaction, representing Millennium Partners. The leasing team was led by Mr. Spiegelman, Kazuko Morgan and Emily Ou.

 

“With the completion of this lease transaction with Primark, the Burnham Building is now at 97% occupancy, with the exception of a prime 1,900 square foot corner space that’s available for lease,” said Mario Palumbo, partner at Millennium Partners. “The transaction validates Millennium Tower/Burnham Building as one of the top retail locations in the United States.”

 

Millennium Partners’ latest project follows the company’s success with The Ritz-Carlton, Boston Common Hotel and Residential Towers, and Millennium Place, which sold out earlier this year to become one of the fastest selling condominium developments in Boston’s history.

Once complete, the wider mixed-use dockside regeneration project, which is being undertaken by developer Peel and comprises 950 residential units, 430,000 ft² (approx. 39,948 m²) of offices and a hotel, along with associated infrastructure, is expected to create over 3,500 jobs.

 

Forming Phase 1 of Chatham Waters, the new Asda food retail superstore and petrol filling station, which are located on the southern part of the site close to Pier Road, will create 450 permanent jobs. Legal & General will be funding the development over the construction period and on completion Asda will take a new 25 year lease. The new store will offer the local population an alternative to the current food stores in the nearby area and it is anticipated the superstore will be open in Autumn 2015.

 

James Whittaker, Development Director at Peel said, “We are pleased to welcome Asda as the very first occupier at Chatham Waters at a key area of the site fronting Pier Road. Their confirmation enables us to start work on the road improvements and landscaping in this phase breathing new life into a significant area of the dockland. Chatham Waters is a wholly privately funded development with Peel investing £25 million in Phase 1 alone and it is hoped it will give the region a real economic boost.”

 

Doug Wilson, Head of UK Property Communications at ASDA said, “We are delighted to have secured investment from Peel to allow us to fulfil our ambitions to create a new Asda store and petrol filling station at Peel’s Chatham Waters development in Kent. The new store will cater for local residents in the area as well as the new residents who will arrive when further phases of the development are complete”.

 

Adam Kerr, Head of long income transactions at Legal & General Property, commented: “We are delighted to be providing the catalyst to this major regeneration scheme which will we believe will transform the local area, offering significant benefits both in terms of job opportunities and social amenities.”

 

The completion with ASDA enables Peel to start on further work on the site. Contractors Sisk have been instructed and will work on road improvements, highway works and landscaping and public realm works that form Phase 1 of the development. They will also begin work on creating a platform for the new £10million University Technical College (UTC) which Medway Council recently announced would be built at the site following detailed planning permission being granted.

 

Chatham Waters will transform the heavy industrial site into an impressive 1.9 million ft² (approx. 176,515 m²) mixed-use sustainable development incorporating; offices, an education facility, a conference centre, a hotel, apartments and town houses, a foodstore and a number of landscaped public areas. It is estimated the plans could create 3,500 jobs.

Liverpool FC reveal Anfield Stadium expansion vision (UK)

Liverpool Football Club has unveiled its stadium expansion plans with detailed proposals for the expansion of its Main Stand and outline proposals for expansion of its Anfield Road Stand.

 

Public consultation and exhibitions on the proposals are scheduled for this week and LFC are asking for residents, fans and local businesses to give their views as part of its planning application, which the club expects to submit in the summer.

 

The exhibition shows the detailed design proposals for the redevelopment of the Main Stand which could add an additional 8,500 seats taking the Main Stand capacity to nearly 21,000 and overall Anfield capacity to around 54,000.

 

Incorporating the iconic club crest into the proposed Main Stand’s exterior elevation, the scheme will also include a two-storey podium and a carefully designed cloister which will become the new home for the Hillsborough Memorial.

 

The Main Stand will open onto a wide public concourse which will link the stadium into the wider Anfield area.

 

The outline proposals for the Anfield Road Stand provide for an increase in its capacity of around 4,800 seats.

 

In October 2012, Liverpool City Council announced its plans to transform the Anfield area with a comprehensive regeneration plan. LFC committed to working with the City Council and Your Housing Group in support of their delivery of the regeneration plan and also confirmed its preference was to expand Anfield stadium.

 

Ian Ayre, Liverpool FC managing director, said: “As part of our proposed stadium redevelopment project, we have unveiled the detail of our ambitious plans for an expanded Main Stand and Anfield Road stand and are embarking on a consultation process which will shape and inform our planning application.

 

“In order to move forward with our expansion plans we need to have certainty that we can navigate the complex planning process and secure the support of the community, local home owners, businesses and other key stakeholders. This consultation exercise is an important part of this process.

 

“We started this journey just over 18 months ago and a lot of work has already been done, there is still an incredible amount to do, but good progress has been made so far and we are proud to be able to unveil our plans.”

 

Liverpool City Council has confirmed that negotiations with property owners are progressing well and all parties are close to agreement but there are still details to be finalised.

 

Following this consultation process, Liverpool FC expects to refine its plans and submit a planning application to the City Council during the summer.

 

If consent is granted, construction work on the proposed Main Stand could begin early next year and it could be complete in time for the 2016-17 season.

Mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson, said: “This is another important step in our ambitions to transform the Anfield area, bringing new jobs, investment and housing.

 

“The overall regeneration of Anfield will see £260m invested in the local community and will deliver hundreds of jobs – Liverpool Football Club’s proposals for the stadium are a key part of this.

 

“We are all committed to delivering a brighter future for Anfield and the club’s exhibition is a clear signal that real progress is being made with all our plans.”

 

Brian Cronin, chief executive of Your Housing Group, said: “This is another significant step in the process for the Anfield Project and we welcome the headway which is being made by all parts of the partnership. Once again, the local community are being given the opportunity to see the proposals before the application is made which underlines the ‘community first’ approach we are collectively taking.

 

“It’s doubtless that many of our residents are very keen to see the plans and see how the new stadium might look and we are committed to making this happen.”

Deutsche Wohnen invests €20 million in the refurbishment of Hellersdorfer Promenade (DE)

In summer 2014 Deutsche Wohnen will be starting with extensive refurbishment work on its residential holdings along Hellersdorfer Promenade in the Berlin borough of Marzahn-Hellersdorf. Deutsche Wohnen will be investing approximately € 20 million in the refurbishment work in order to improve the housing quality in this city complex with its 1,300 residential and commercial units and to enable the tenants to identify more closely with their immediate neighbourhood.

 

As Lars Urbansky, Managing Director of Deutsche Wohnen Immobilien Management GmbH, explains, “We acquired this residential complex along Hellersdorfer Promenade in April 2013 and assumed direct responsibility for its management at the beginning of this year. We want to develop these holdings further and, for this reason, have decided to refurbish them extensively.”

 

On the subject of this refurbishment Christian Gräff (CDU), the local councillor responsible for urban development in the borough, said today, “The urban development authority is delighted that the new owner is addressing the development of this complex very promptly, that it is refurbishing the flats, and that overall it is involving itself in the sustainable development of this borough.”

 

The aim of the refurbishment is to adapt the estate, which was built at the end of the 1980s, to the requirements of modern living. In the course of the refurbishment work the facades of the buildings will be insulated and, at the same time, given a modern, contemporary appearance. Furthermore, existing balcony structures will be either replaced or re-clad, and additional, new balconies will be mounted along Hellersdorfer Promenade. Moreover, in order to improve the energy efficiency of the buildings, the roof and cellar insulation will be redone and some of the windows in the flats and stairwells will be replaced with new double-glazed windows.

 

To make the residential complex more family-friendly the external and landscaped areas are to be redesigned. To this end, Deutsche Wohnen plans to reduce the amount of space in the courtyards that has been concreted over, to plant new green areas, to build new paths and driveways and to create seating areas with benches. New play areas will be built along Hellersorfer Promenade and also in the internal courtyards.

 

The refurbishment work along Hellersdorfer Promenade will be carried out in stages and will probably be completed by the end of 2017.

 

“We plan to carry out the refurbishment work sustainably and with great care, and we will act in close consultation with the local borough. As the largest private housing company in Berlin with 90 years of history we have long-standing experience in the refurbishment of large residential holdings. It is important to us to involve the tenants in such a refurbishment project. For this reason, we will be providing the tenants with detailed information about all the measures we take and we will be available at our local Service Point to answer questions at all times,” explains Lars Urbansky.

Panattoni completes 33,000 m² factory at Wa?brzych for Polaris Industries Inc. (PL)

Panattoni Europe, Poland’s leader in the industrial property market, completed the construction of the first European factory for Polaris Industries Inc. – an American manufacturer, whose product range includes quads. The 33,000 m² facility was built in Opole, at the Wa?brzych Special Economic Zone Invest-Park. Serial production of the vehicles will commence as early as in late August/early September. Polaris Industries Inc. was represented in the transaction by the international advisory firm Cushman & Wakefield.

 

Panattoni Europe has completed the construction of another production facility . This time it is the first European all-terrain vehicles factory of Polaris Industries Inc.- a US manufacturer of snowmobiles, quads, motorcycles and electric NEVs. The facility was built in Opole, at the Wa?brzych Special Economic Zone Invest-Park, and features 33,000 m². The production hall takes up as much as 25,600 m², the warehouse 3,400 m² whereas offices and staff facilities 3,981 m². Construction works on the facility started at the beginning of August 2013, and this coming late July/early August production tests will be launched, with the startup of serial production scheduled for late August/early September 2014.

 

“This is the manufacturer’s first European factory of all-terrain vehicles which will make as many as 25 thousand quads and small all-terrain vehicles per year to be delivered to Europe, Middle East and Russia. Due to the scale of the undertaking, about 350 jobs will be created, and the number may go up in the future”, said Boguslaw Dawiec, Plant Manager.

 

The production facility for Polaris Industries Inc. is a greenfield investment, which means that it was built in an area not previously used for industrial or service purposes. Polaris chose the location in the Wa?brzych Economic Zone Invest-Park in Opole at ul. Wspólna. In turn, Panattoni Europe, as the developer of the whole investment, was responsible for acquiring the property in a tendering procedure, putting in place the rudimentary utility infrastructure, preparing and going through the building permit application procedure, as well designing the facility taking into account Polaris’ specific requirements and planned production profile.

 

At present, Panattoni Europe is developing 265,000 m² of new warehouse space in Poland, including two facilities for Amazon in Pozna? and near Wroc?aw. Since the beginning of this year, the developer has delivered approx. 100,000 m² of space in projects dedicated to such companies as Castorama Polska (50,000 m²) and Polaris (33,600 m²).

McKay announces £19 million acquisition of The Mille in Brentford (UK)

McKay Securities PLC, announced the freehold purchase of The Mille, 1000 Great West Road, Brentford, London from Forthright Property Investments (Brentford) Ltd, clients of Helix Properties, for £19.30 million (approx. €23.5 million).

 

The building, which totals 96,650 ft² (approx. 8,980 m²) of office floor space over 11 floors, is located in a highly prominent position on the south side of the elevated section of the M4 motorway. It is adjacent to the Glaxo Smithkline headquarters and opposite the University of West London. The property was refurbished extensively in 1985, and has subsequently undergone a rolling programme of further refurbishment.

 

The building is currently let to 17 tenants generating a rental income of £1.02 million pa, with rents varying from £13.50 psf to £20.00 psf. There are 8 vacant suites totalling 15,725 ft². Advertising hoardings and roof top masts generate an additional £180,950 pa, taking the total income from the building to £1.20 million pa.

 

Included with the purchase is a site next to the property let separately as a car rental facility and a stand alone advertising tower, generating additional income of £370,000 pa.

 

The combined rental income of the building, advertising tower and car rental facility is £1.57 million pa, providing an initial yield of 7.7%. The reversionary yield if fully let at a conservative ERV of £20 psf prior to any increase in advertising revenue, is 11.8%. The purchase price equates to £130 psf for The Mille Building on a pro-rata basis, excluding advertising and other ancillary income.

 

Commenting on the purchase, Simon Perkins, Managing Director of McKay, said:

“ The building has excellent potential to benefit from the increasing rental values that have already spread beyond the West End to Hammersmith and Chiswick. The rent differential between these markets and Brentford is at an all time high. We believe this gap is likely to close as more companies compete for limited space, which will drive rental growth.

 

A rolling refurbishment programme will improve the appeal of this building to occupiers. There is also untapped potential to improve the level of income generated from the advertising displays in this sought after position, right next to the extremely busy elevated section of the M4 motorway. There is also the medium term potential to undertake a major refurbishment or redevelopment scheme to capitalise on the image and branding potential offered by the location.

 

Our £87 million capital raise in February has given us the ability to secure a number of excellent acquisitions. We target buildings that have the potential to improve rental income and increase capital values. We know our markets well and it is encouraging that we are being introduced to a good number of potentially exciting opportunities, both on and off market. So far we have deployed £31 million of the £87 million raised on acquisitions, and we are continuing to assess further acquisition and portfolio opportunities.”

Im Rahmen seines Wohnimmobilien-Spezials 2014 hat der FOCUS zum zweiten Mal bundesweit kompetente Ansprechpartner für Verkauf und Erwerb von Wohnimmobilien ermittelt und dazu mit dem Hamburger Marktforschungsinstitut Statista zusammengearbeitet.
Wie bereits im letzten Jahr gibt es wieder eine Liste der 1.000 Top-Makler. Zusätzlich hat der FOCUS in diesem Jahr als besondere Auszeichnung das Sondersiegel „FOCUS-Experte“ an bundesweit gerade einmal 19 Immobilienmakler vergeben. Einer davon ist AENGVELT. Im letzten Jahr hatte das Düsseldorfer Stamm­haus von AENGEVELT bereits als einziger Immobilien­dienstleister in der Region sowohl seitens Kunden als auch des Wettbewerbs die Höchstbewertung erhalten.
