Patrick has over 35 years’ extensive experience working in the UK property market with the last 15 years spent implementing large complex mixed-use developments in Central London.
Having been a partner at Donaldsons, in 1997 Patrick joined the Southern Properties Group as a partner where he built up a mixed-use development and investment portfolio. Under his direction, Southern Properties acquired and managed a commercial property fund for a private family office and in 2007 he worked with Ilchester Estates to form a joint venture with Chelsfield to acquire the former Commonwealth Institute site in Holland Park. In conjunction with Chelsfield he then led the development of the new Design Museum together with 55 luxury apartments, known as Holland Green, with a GDV of £440m.
In 2016 Patrick was appointed Chelsfield’s London development director where he was responsible for the K1 Knightsbridge development owned by The Olayan Group. The 330,00 sq ft mixed use scheme, with a GDV of in excess of £700m, to include retail, office and residential, behind a listed façade, included three levels of new basement excavation adjoining the London Underground infrastructure. Pre-lettings of the retail were secured to Apple and Burberry and a new benchmark for office and retail rents was established in Knightsbridge.
Patrick is now development director at Quadrant where he is fully involved with their development pipeline.
