Developer, operator, owner

History and background

Since starting out 25 years ago, Chris Stewart Group has earned its position at the vanguard of urban regeneration and real estate place-making by maintaining a simple, clear vision for developing amazing spaces. The organisation has predominantly focused on complex prime and super-prime sites in UK city centres, typically involving some listed/protected assets, many with fundamental structural issues, challenging access and topography, and sensitive planning and heritage matters. CSG’s track record speaks for itself – the projects are consistently successful. Sympathetic design, smart construction techniques, innovative funding structures and an open engagement with key stakeholders and local communities ensure this success.

Sector specialisms

Chris Stewart Group is one of the UKs leading property developers and operators of a new class of residential-serviced apartments and select-service hotels. Working closely with global brands and professional management companies, the CSG platform seeks to extract more value through an integrated approach, with a successful real estate strategy at its core.  The organisation consistently unlocks superior value and outpaces competition through a comprehensive understanding of the industry and broad skillset across the team; the combination of which is extremely rare in the market.

In-house skills

Chris Stewart Group was founded by CEO Chris Stewart, who leads a team of knowledgeable and experienced industry professionals, growing the team year on year. Across the business, CSG boasts exceptional talent – an in-house design team, a development and acquisitions team, project and construction management, asset management, corporate finance, as well as an operational team led by our director of operations and including directors of F&B, sales and revenue, and corporate functions including finance, people and culture, and marketing and communications.

The Bon Vivant Group

With a simple philosophy of sharing a passion for excellent food and drink paired with outstanding customer service, The Bon Vivant Group is the perfect partner for CSG. This collaboration means that Chris Stewart Group can select one of The Bon Vivant Group’s existing brand concepts – such as The Devil’s Advocate or El Cartel – or work with the team to create a style and an offering that works for the target audience. Blending BVG’s award-winning hospitality with CSG’s beautifully-designed spaces has created some of the UK’s best bars and restaurants, many of which sit within or alongside CSG developments.
