Robert Tattrie – former managing director of Alfred McAlpine Developments – has teamed up with Hortons’ Estate to form Trebor Developments LLP.
Mark Wright, development director at Alfred McAlpine Developments, now Carillion Developments, will also be joining the LLP as a partner from September 1 and will be based at new offices in the Longbridge Innovation Centre, Birmingham.
Robert Tattrie said: “I am delighted to have concluded a deal with Hortons for the formation of the new LLP, as they bring not only financial support to Trebor Developments but further management and accounting support.
“The benefits of having an extremely well respected Midlands-based property company with vast experience will further add to the growth of Trebor Developments in its selected markets.”
As managing director of Alfred McAlpine Developments, Robert Tattrie has previously undertaken successful joint development projects with Hortons’ Estate, and the partners have built up an excellent working relationship during the last five years.
Rob Blyth, chief executive of Hortons’ Estate, said: “Hortons is continuing to expand the development side of its business and this partnership offers us the opportunity to widen our sphere of activity in development, both in terms of location and sector.
“We are confident of the benefits of the synergy between the partners and the proven skills and track record demonstrated by Bob and Mark.”
Trebor Developments LLP will continue to carry out development and development management services throughout the UK in specialist fields including hotels, commercial, primary healthcare developments and public sector partnerships.
Meanwhile, Hortons has clinched two deals for properties in Piccadilly Arcade and on Colmore Row, continuing the buoyant trend across its portfolio and signalling the merits of investing in prime locations.
Adding more choice and style to the trendy fashion outlets in Piccadilly Arcade will be Cielo, a new women’s and men’s fashion boutique which has agreed a five-year lease at £13,000 per annum for its 260 sq ft unit.
Independent retailer Shabir Khan said that the Arcade’s bustling atmosphere and the resurgence of shoppers to the New Street area were definitely deciding factors on choosing the location. The Arcade’s art deco architecture also reflected Cielo’s chic boutique style.
High footfall was equally important for pasta and salad deli bar Healthy Hunger, which has taken a 10-year lease on a 790 sq ft unit on Colmore Row at £37,000 per annum.
Owner Tom Jordan said: “Finding the right type of unit in the heart of the business district was essential to us and we’re looking forward to offering the professional community something a bit different and a tasty, yet healthier, option to the traditional sandwich bar.”
Fit outs for both are under way.
