FHP Property Consultants

2019 has seen the expansion of FHP Property Consultants into the West Midlands with the opening of an office at 122 Colmore Row, from where it now offers a range of agency and consultancy advice across the retail, leisure, office and industrial sectors.

FHP has recently been crowned by the EG as the East Midlands most active agent for the second year running operating further offices in Nottingham and Derby.

Doug Tweedie joined in January 2019 as Head of the Birmingham office, having moved from Cushman and Wakefield, where he was Head of Midlands Retail and Leisure.

A vastly experienced property professional, Doug has advised landlords, investors and developers on a wide range of projects nationally. He has also provided strategic acquisition and disposal advice to clients including Apple, Vodafone, TM Lewin and Wolseley.

Opening the Birmingham city office has been a natural step for the ambitious consultancy, having established a strong base of clients in the region.

Alan Pearson, director of FHP, said: “FHP is a strong Midlands practice, which is dominant in the East Midlands and so opening a Birmingham office was a natural move for us. Doug is an established and hugely experienced property agent, who will continue to grow our business throughout the West Midlands.”

FHP’s Retail and Leisure portfolio includes shopping centres Intu Derby, Intu Victoria Centre, Intu Broadmarsh, Three Spires in Lichfield, Four Seasons in Mansfield and the proposed Stove Works Retail Park development in Leamington Spa. It is also involved in roadside retail developments in Wetmore Road in Burton upon Trent. FHP is retained on The Cornerhouse, Nottingham and Baxter Gate, Loughborough leisure schemes.

FHP Birmingham is already working on a number of projects across Birmingham and the West Midlands, with high profile instructions on Bennetts Hill and Temple Street and hopes of announcing two new leisure names to the city centre soon. It is also marketing 2,500 sq ft of retail and leisure space, opposite the proposed HS2 station.

The first quarter of 2019 has been a great success with great support from clients, winning six Shopping Centre leasing mandates in Sutton Coldfield, Lichfield, Mansfield, Stourbridge, Wolverhampton and Derby.

Established in 1990, FHP is now one of the largest private commercial property consultancies within the Midlands. It offers services in sales and lettings, acquisitions, valuations, business rates, rent reviews, lease renewals, development consultancy, compulsory purchase and service charge consultancy.
