Property issues on agenda at Unfold

A MAJOR property conference and exhibition highlighting subjects including financing development and the future of tall buildings in cities is taking place in Yorkshire tomorrow.

Speakers at the Unfold event at Leeds Town Hall will include Greg Stype, public and infrastructure finance specialist with law firm Squire Sanders Hammonds, and Steve Watts, of global construction consultants Davis Langdon.

Around 500 delegates are expected at the event, which will consist of an exhibition and a number of seminars.

Subjects include Tax Increment Financing (TIF), localism and its impact on economic growth and development in the Leeds City Region and the value of sustainable design.

Howard Kew, chief executive of Financial Leeds, which has organised the event, said: "We are delighted with the high level of interest this event is creating, particularly in its first year.

"The event should leave delegates in no doubt that Leeds City Region is full of opportunity for investment, relocation and development alike."

Kevin Bramley, senior director of development and head of the northern development consultancy at CB Richard Ellis in Leeds, added: "Undoubtedly the whole region has felt the impact of the challenging economic climate and looking at the development arena, there has been limited activity and take-up levels of existing accommodation have not been favourable.

"In summary, the Leeds City Region has a lot of offer with a robust economy, ingenuity for developing flagship buildings such as Bridgewater Place which have put the city of the map, a good offering of commercial stock and viable plans for improving infrastructure all of which place it in a strong position for future prosperity."
