ABOUT us

Based in Brighton the Dwell Above team has been working in the property development industry since the late 1990s. Our experience covers the full development spectrum from small residential projects to large developments of 100+ apartments. 

Throughout these years house prices have consistently risen and developable land has become even more scarce, leading to a record cost-per-square-foot purchase price.

Recognising the need to unlock more developable land we identified an opportunity to ‘Build Up, Not Out’. Many buildings in cities in the UK – including but not limited to London – have the potential to add another floor to create additional and much needed housing. 

WHY us

 

We're not like other airspace developers. We don’t have a ‘cookie-cutter’ approach to airspace projects. Our flexible approach enables us to tailor each potential opportunity to the needs of interested parties.

We are your logical partner if: 

  • You are considering an airspace development 

  • You own a building that may be suitable for an airspace development 

  • You live in a block of flats with a deteriorating roof

  • You want to sell your airspace

  • You are looking for an experienced and credible company

 

Based in Brighton & Hove

 

Working across the UK but based in Brighton, our research shows that there are significant opportunities to add additional stories to many of the blocks in the city. Our intimate knowledge of Brighton and Hove means we are best placed to identify and develop airspace developments locally.

 

 

A Credible Supply Chain 

When you work with us, we manage the whole process – there is literally no work for you. Our service includes

 

  • Site Survey 

  • Feasibility Appraisal 

  • Financial Appraisal

  • Legal Documents

  • Leaseholder briefing meetings

  • Planning Submission 

  • Manufacture and Installation 

  • Sales and Marketing 

Green Credentials 

 

We work with sustainability at the heart of our business. Our approach to construction of the apartments in a factory substantially reduces the carbon impact compared to a traditional on-site build.
