Creating value in property

Investing today. Developing for tomorrow.

The T A Fisher team has gained an invaluable degree of knowledge and insight from our 35 years’ experience in commercial development and property investment across the Thames Valley. This has enabled us to develop across multiple sectors and establish an almost unparalleled skills range, including blending uses within mixed-use developments. A substantial amount of property is currently held as investment, either developed by the company or acquired for asset management and re purposing.

COMMERCIAL

Adept at finding solutions for a wide range of sites, we thrive on opportunities that mainstream developers shy away from. We specialise in tackling vacant or part-vacant buildings or sites and extracting the most value from the situation.

commercial and mixed use

Extensive Commercial Experience
T A Fisher’s commercial activities focus on the Thames Valley and within that area we have developed a considerable amount of commercial property, either in our own right or in partnership with others. Our broad spectrum of commercial activity includes:

  • Offices
  • Hotels
  • Business units for SMEs
  • Roadside retail
  • Mixed-use schemes combining different components, such as retail, aparthotel, children day nurseries, and budget gyms.

Cash is usually readily available to meet commitments requiring a fast settlement. Alternatively, conditional deals can also be structured. We are equally open to joint-venture proposals or discussions on a partnership basis.

Breathing new life in to property
Over the last 35 years we have acquired a reputation for our success in buying institutional stock from major pension funds. This typically involves real estate that requires investment, repositioning and refurbishment. From our perspective, it allows our team to apply their energy, skills and creative insight to re-energise the site, adding the T A Fisher factor that provides the property with a new and very positive lease of life.

Investment for Asset Management or Future Development
Our expansive portfolio comprises property that has been acquired for asset management and/or redevelopment potential.

We are sometimes involved in acquiring buildings on a ‘sale and leaseback’ which can often offer owners a much needed cash injection to generate liquidity and reduce debt, so enabling the operating company to function in a less pressured financial environment.

T A Fisher are always in the market for income-producing or part vacant property in the Thames Valley, across all sectors. We welcome approaches and discussions with property owners and agents concerning potentially suitable propositions. Our lot size is typically in the range of £2 to £5 million. Cash is available to meet early deadlines and bank funding is generally not required. Consequently, fast decisions can be reached without recourse to third-party approvals.

TENANT STORIES

“T A Fisher has been a superb landlord. The deal we structured back in 2013 involved some of the fit out being handled by the landlord, working alongside Buzz to create the amazing facility we now have at 100 Kings Road. The whole T A Fisher team were a pleasure to work with. I recall there being a huge amount of time spent in meetings on-site during the build.”

Adam Stowell, CEO

“Having worked with T A Fisher for over 20 years I have always found them to be helpful, approachable, and extremely nice people to deal with, who take a personal interest. I would recommend T A Fisher as a landlord if you are looking for a business premises. They will always look after you as a tenant, are helpful, and not pushy in anyway or ever difficult to deal with.”
