DPM has experience across a broad range of sectors within the development industry, including Retail, Office, Business Parks, Leisure, Industrial/ Warehouses, Roadside, Residential and Care Homes. The following case studies provide a sample of some of the projects with which we have been involved:
> Retail in Town view details...
Prior to development, this site in Bournemouth consisted of two elements. The first of these was the Criterion Public House and Ritz Wine, which had a double frontage to Old Christchurch Road. The second was the Criterion Shopping Arcade, located to the rear of the bars and accessed through the shared frontage.
This is a prime retail pitch in the middle of Bournemouth’s busy central retail district, and the site was developed into two 10,000 sq ft multi level units being pre-let to top high street stores Monsoon and TopShop. Both stores opened for trading in time for the crucial Christmas trading period on time and budget. The end value of the completed development was circa £10 million.
> Retail out of town view details...
Previously a brewery depot this was assembled with four adjacent land holdings to make one six acre site. As part of this site assembly, the Chard Fire Station and the council’s Highway Depot had to be relocated. The site was developed into a 35,000 sq ft supermarket.
Sainsbury, Burton on Trent
This mixed use site was party demolished and used by the Local Authority as a public car park, with the other parts being let to commercial and protected residential tenants. We were able to negotiate the relocation of all tenants and obtained planning consent within 18 months in spite of the complicated nature of the sites tenure.
