Thornsett Group entered into a Joint Venture agreement with the owner of the last remaining unmodernised terrace of buildings on Fulham Road. The development comprised 56 high specification apartments and 14 retail units. Construction was completed in May 2012. The owner, a family trust, took back 22 apartments and all the 14 retail units to provide a long term revenue stream. As the development was an open book partnership, the landowner was able to benefit from a construction overage, leading to an extra flat being handed back, as well as a sales overage in the form of a cash payment.
