Vanguard Real Estate becomes Osborne and Co

UK developer Vanguard Real Estate has rebranded as Osborne and Co as part of a restructuring process, and has set out a £5bn pipeline target.

The UK business will now operate under the same umbrella as its Middle Eastern partnership, Gulf Resources Development and Investment (GRDI), which recently completed HSBC’s new 650,000 sq ft headquarters in Dubai.

Vanguard operated as a jv between GRDI, property professional Jim Kelly and UK logistics developer Graftongate. In future, Kelly and Graftongate will be involved on a project-by-project basis.

These projects include major office and mixed-use developments in Glasgow and Belfast
