A specialist investor, operator and developer focused on the delivery of creative solutions for the evolving Science and Innovation sector.
We believe that sustained economic prosperity will be underpinned by growth and investment in scientific and emergent ‘knowledge economy’ industries. Our Mission is to become the partner of choice for the UK’s research and innovation sector, supporting the entire lifecycle from discovery, to R&D and manufacturing.
In January 2021 Mission Street entered into a Joint Venture with BentallGreenOak (www.bentallgreenoak.com), a leading global real estate investment manager with $69bn of assets under management. BentallGreenOak is majority owned by Sun Life Financial, a Canadian financial services company and one of the largest life insurance companies in the world. The JV is growing its platform via ground-up developments and the re-purposing of existing assets in areas across the UK that are anchored by strong research and development credentials. The venture will also seek to partner with public and private bodies to build successful open innovation ecosystems.
Since inception, we have secured a committed pipeline in excess of 300,000 sq ft and continue to grow rapidly. Our market-leading R&D real estate expertise, understanding of planning and development, and ability to transact on an all equity basis, has resulted in a proven track record of executing complex acquisitions rapidly and unconditionally.
