The Lucent Strategic Land Fund (LSLF) is at the heart of what Lucent does. It is the only open-ended investment vehicle that focuses purely on the strategic acquisition of land in the UK.
Because of the skills and expertise available to the Fund from Lucent Advisors, investors are able to benefit from informed and carefully researched acquisitions. Our knowledge of potential risks and returns is exceptionally detailed and, therefore, better managed.
By only acquiring only sites that have already been identified to come forward as part of a town plan and where the principle of development is established, we effectively remove one of the major risks involved in land acquisition in the UK.
We then work to add value to the site through sustainable planning and design work, including involving obtaining the relevant permissions, including change of use and enabling infrastructure, if necessary, to deliver a serviced site to the house-building market. We work closely with the local communities and authorities to address the full range of development issues, from infrastructure provision to the appropriate mix of housing density, commercial use and amenities.
The quality of design – as well as the careful attention to ensuring house builder profitability – ensures that sites that Lucent brings to the market are very attractive to house builders and offer the most competitive price in the local markets in which it operates.
It is the successful completion of this process that creates the largest capital gain anywhere in the real estate cycle while risks are mitigated through extensive upfront due diligence.
And it is at this point that the Fund will sell the site to a developer.
