Chief Executive’s Review

"Realising our ambitious regeneration projects in 2018 allowed us to generate over €100m in rent roll for the first time in our history. We achieved this milestone off the back of pre-letting these projects and have positioned the portfolio for further growth in 2019 and beyond."
