Ballymore is a developer with vast and varied experience, acknowledged as pioneers of some of Europe’s largest regeneration projects. Today, we remain 100% owned and managed by Sean Mulryan, who founded the business with his wife Bernardine Mulryan, in Ireland, in 1982.
We work in complex urban settings both new and old. In emerging markets, we create transformation and opportunity with ambitious mixed-use developments like Eurovea in Bratislava and we carry out sensitive modernisation in established and historic cityscapes like Old Spitalfields Market in the City of London.

Our development vision is creative, carefully executed and broad in scope, from five-star hotels in Prague to housing developments in Greater Dublin. We’ve created and delivered corporate headquarters for KPMG and Barclays Bank PLC, and our developments at Pan Peninsula and Providence Tower in London have established two of Europe’s tallest residential addresses.
Ballymore takes its responsibility as a place maker very seriously, putting quality of life and a connection to arts and culture at the core of our work. We’re currently developing new headquarters for English National Ballet and London Film School on London City Island, our groundbreaking project just south of Canary Wharf. We worked alongside the US government to move their embassy from Grosvenor Square to Embassy Gardens at Nine Elms, establishing a new riverside cultural district for the city and signalling a major shift in London’s diplomatic centre of gravity.
“The scale and ambition of our work has grown with the business.”
Today, after over 38 years, we are one of London and Dublin’s most innovative and dynamic property developers. In 2019, we completed around 2,000 homes in the UK, and more than 4,500 are currently under construction in London alone. Our residential portfolio pipeline give us the capacity to add a further 9,000 homes to meet future demand, and we’re adding to our commercial, retail and leisure portfolio, with around 1.2 million sq ft under construction in the UK and Ireland and an additional 1.5 million sq ft in our land bank.
Yet as the scale and ambition of our work grows, we never forget the importance of working to the highest standards on every individual element of every development, creating places in which people, business, culture and society can thrive.
