Excelsior Land Property Development



With several years’ experience creating and managing portfolios worth circa £330m throughout the UK, our speciality is mixed use residential and commercial development.


From site assembly and development to asset management, our aim is to ensure completed projects provide strong investment returns.


Excelsior Land works closely with a number of land owners, managers and funds. Whether it’s a “Developers Eye” consultancy or a complete development solution, we would be delighted to assist in either the residential or commercial property sector.


At Excelsior Land, we also have our own property portfolio of residential developments in the Midlands and South East. We are always on the lookout for good opportunities with or without planning to purchase. Typically we look at acquiring sites with the potential to build between 1 and 12 units.


For more information or to contact us regarding a potential site, contact Eoin O’Cearbhaill. Eoin is the Founder and Managing Director of Excelsior Land and has a PhD in Structural and Civil Engineering, as well as over 10 years of development experience.
