News: Harworth Estates back at MIPIM


Rotherham-based Harworth Estates, one of the largest property and regeneration companies across the North of England and the Midlands, will be back at MIPIM in March this year, as part of the delegation from the Sheffield city region (SCR).

Held annually in Cannes, MIPIM is the world's property market and brings together the most influential players from all international property sectors - office, residential, retail, healthcare, sport, logistics and industrial. It attracts 20,000 visitors including 4,300 investors and 3,000 CEOs.

A specialist in brownfield regeneration, the Harworth Group, which is based on its own flagship Waverley development, manages around 31,370 acres across some 200 projects, with consent for 8,000 new homes. It was created through the complex restructure of what was UK Coal.

It is one of a number of private sector businesses and organisations that are sponsoring the trade mission which has a commitment from the LEP and local authorities for senior level presence at MIPIM to support the private sector.

Verdion, Nabarro, CTP, Harworth Estates, The University of Sheffield, Arup, HLM, Coda and Bond Bryan have signed up to show their support.

The SCR is set to showcase assets and opportunities based on the key themes of Innovation, Urban Renaissance and Northern Specialisation, in addition to highlighting the city region's part in the Northern Powerhouse.

One of the proposals set to generate interest is the Sheffield-Rotherham Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District (AMID). Recognising that high value manufacturing can be key to driving innovation, productivity and exports, civic leaders have committed to the idea of "supercharging" the areas of advanced manufacturing in the Sheffield-Rotherham Economic Corridor. Based around the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP) in Rotherham and surrounding Enterprise Zone, the aim is to develop Europe's largest research-led advanced manufacturing cluster.

The £600m investment opportunity was included in the Northern Pitchbook, lauded by the chancellor, George Osborne as he sought investment from China.

Counter Context has been appointed to manage SCR's presence at the world's largest property and investment show.

Simon Collingwood, associate director at Counter Context, said: "Counter Context is delighted to be supporting Sheffield city region's presence at MIPIM. The SCR's offering at MIPIM will be a fantastic opportunity for the city region to showcase itself to investors. This is an important moment for the city region, building on the activities currently in the pipeline. Importantly, it is a partnership between the public and the private sector working to achieve a good outcome for the city region."
