Newcrest is one of the UK's leading developers and investors in community and neighbourhood real estate.

Target assets range in size from small neighbourhood retail parades to larger local and district centres. Whilst most of these schemes are ‘retail led’, they frequently incorporate a wide mix of other uses including offices, leisure, childcare, medical facilities, hotels and care homes.

Although disparate in use, the common theme is that the locations form the nucleus of a significant catchment of dwellings, where thoughtful design and management can create vitality and a sense of community.
