The LOWE Group

The LOWE Group is a vacant property consultancy with social value at its very core. Our team of specialists offer clients advice on how to best manage their upcoming or existing vacant portfolios. LOWE also offers a specifically designed in-house delivery team who can deliver these bespoke solutions.

Vacant property is too often associated with risk when, in most cases, it should be viewed as an opportunity. Our team has the skillset to repurpose vacant properties in a number of different ways. Since our inception we have created hundreds of affordable living opportunities, provided accessible workspaces for local businesses and created spacious artist studios for creatives. Our aim is to unlock aspiration through affordability, and we are proud to have done this for over 5 years.

Our clients benefit from our industry leading knowledge and foresight. We make them aware of potential financial savings and the security risks associated with leaving their properties vacant. We can also offer advice on the planning process and help them create multi-channelled marketing campaigns. We very much see ourselves as an extension of their team and are willing to assist wherever possible.
