Headquartered in London and led by a highly experienced team comprised of its founding partners and a globally recognised executive management team, we have a network of offices across our footprint supporting our mission to be a global developer of choice and a trusted investment partner. 

Previously delivering projects under the GRDI name and as the UK property business of Vanguard Real Estate, Osborne and Co is the new umbrella brand that unites our global track record. We are the new delivery vehicle for continued excellence on major real estate projects across the globe. Our unique team combines experience, innovation and disruption with a reputation for execution, reliability and unfailing quality for our tenants, partners and co-investors. 

Together we have built a reputation for collaboration, value creation and market leading products with a focus on rolling out our model wherever we can identify disconnects between what the market and occupiers expect – and the solutions we can deliver. 

Under the leadership of founding directors Jim Osborne and Conor Osborne and its industry leading executive management team, we are targeting a global development programme with a gross development value (GDV) of £5bn over the next three years. 

Within our home market of the UK, in partnership with Graftongate, the company is currently developing major office and mixed-use schemes in Glasgow and Belfast with a GDV of £550m. These form part of wider and clear development pipeline of circa. £1bn across the UK and Ireland.
