What we do

South Street is an independent UK based limited company, fully integrated manager, operator and developer of commercial real estate. The diverse South Street portfolio includes office, retail, residential, student and industrial properties across UK and Europe. We now manage in excess of £600M of assets. South Street has 40 employees across 3 UK offices (headquartered in London) and offers a full service of investment, asset and development management.


Our History

The South Street story started in 2004 when we took full early mover advantage by entering into the UK student property market. We have since transacted over £500m of student property. We identified this immature market over a decade ago well before today’s new institutional and private owners and developers. We are one of the UK’s oldest and pioneering independent managers, operators and developers of UK purpose built student property. We have one of the UK’s most highly experienced student property management teams with a unique combination of asset and operational expertise.

Student Property

Our current portfolio has over 3000 beds under management nationwide. We made our first pioneering investment into student property in 2004, fully aware that this sector would form a key component of investor allocations to operational real estate across the globe a decade later. Investing in student property demands creativity due to the operating nature of the asset class, with a significant proportion of value driven by relevance & performance of the product and operator. Having an operational strategy is a fundamental as the bricks and mortar. We have a dedicated team serving our student property assets with over a decade of operational experience.


In the United Kingdom, properties are predominantly located in London (Mayfair, West End, City Fringe and the West of London), Sheffield, Milton Keynes, Huddersfield, Wolverhampton and Gatwick.
