Ballymore has joined the newly-launched London First Place Commission, helping to produce a framework and recommendations to evolve London's built environment as it recovers from the pandemic.
Underpinned by research and analysis by Deloitte, the Place Commission will bring together leading businesses in the capital including Ballymore, working alongside SEGRO, Grosvenor, the Crown Estate, Arup, Imperial College London and other prominent firms in the hospitality, legal and housing sectors. Together they will answer the question 'how should London's built environment evolve to help people thrive and business to succeed?’.
Ballymore’s UK Managing Director John Mulryan is one of the organisation’s newly appointed commissioners and said: “I am delighted to be joining industry peers, sharing Ballymore’s knowledge and expertise as we help to shape London’s future.
“I look forward to collaborating with all involved and moving forward with new ideas for the capital’s built environment.”
John Dickie, Chief Executive at London First, added: "London’s evolution as a place is vital to the city's future economic success and its global competitiveness. Decisions made now will affect how we live, work and socialise in the capital for decades to come; so it is critical that we get them right. The business leaders on our Commission will look at new trends and old challenges to set a fresh vision and programme of action for London to make it a better place."
London First is a business membership group which campaigns to make London the best city in the world to do business. The group convenes and mobilises business leaders to tackle the key challenges facing the capital. For further information click here.
