In this episode of the EG Property Podcast, EG editor Samantha McClary is in conversation with Simon Bird of architecture firm LOM, talking about the juxtaposition of property’s love for a tall building and the sector’s commitment to net zero carbon development.

Is it possible to really build environmentally friendly tall buildings? Is a trophy building still a trophy building if it is not made from glass and steel?

Can a future exist where it is just as easy to take down our buildings as it is to put them up? Can we re-use and recycle towers? Could we actually develop an urban jungle and grow our buildings?

These are the questions that we seek to answer in the latest look at the fundamentals of the future in real estate.

In this week’s episode of EG Like Sunday Morning, EG editor Samantha McClary steps in while deputy legal editor Jess Harrold continues to gorge himself on Easter eggs to talk about what has been keeping the EG news team busy over the past few days.

Joining the podcast are deputy editor Tim Burke and London reporter Alex Daniel to talk future of offices, IWG’s big plans to repurpose hundreds if not thousands of redundant shops, the transformation of M&S stores to offices and we have a little rant about government failing to understand the dynamics of the real estate owning community and failing to trust the market to sort itself out.

Welcome to The New Methodology, a new podcast collaboration between EG editor Samantha McClary and founder of Freestate Adam Scott.

In this five-part series Sam and Adam will be talking to guest about what really makes real estate tick. But they will be looking at the sector from a different angle as they investigate a new methodology for development of place.

There will be less chat about bricks and mortar and more chat about people, time, journeys and experiences.

In this first episode they sit down with Ros Morgan, chief executive of the Heart of London Business Alliance, and Matt Howe, chief operating officer of Fed Square, in Melbourne to talk about culture and how it could and should be central to the development of space.

In this episode of Resi Talks, EG’s residential editor Emma Rosser and guests dig into the growing momentum behind calls for retirement housing reform.

A year in lockdown has shone a light on housing for the elderly and most vulnerable. Just last week, 40 signatories backed an open letter to the prime minister Boris Johnson calling for support to expand housing and care provision.

This builds on various demands to central government - with the industry demanding planning changes, alongside stamp duty exemptions, targets   and a framework to boost new development.

Last year, former housing minister Mark Prisk said the UK was “failing” the elderly. Here, he expands on this, in conversation with Eugene Marchese, co-founder of developer Guild Living and Will Bax, chief executive of Retirement Villages Group.

Joining Sarah Jackman for this week’s episode of Bricks & Mortar is James Bircumshaw, infrastructure manager at Skyports – a company which owns and operates infrastructure for urban aviation and manages end-to-end drone deliveries.

Although James has spent the last couple of years working in a tech start-up environment, he began his career in a more traditional real estate setting, by completing his APC and then honing in on commercial property asset management. Fast forward a couple of years and the opportunity to work at Skyports arose. James decided on a change of career and hasn’t looked back.

Find out how he made the leap, what he enjoys about his current role and how he applies his real estate background to it. For anyone thinking of a similar change of direction, he has advice: “Don’t be afraid to make a bold move, step outside your comfort zone and do something different.”

A year on from the first Covid-19 lockdown, many lenders to the commercial real estate market have battened down the hatches, focusing on their best, existing clients and limiting new lending.

What next for the market as signs of distress emerge? How are banks and other lenders working to ensure responsible dealmaking during the next phase of the crisis? And how different is the situation faced today to the Great Financial Crisis?

  • John Carter, commercial director at Aldermore
  • Peter Cosmetatos, chief executive at CREFC Europe

In this episode of EG’s TechTalk Radio EG editor Samantha McClary talks to Olly Freedman from ReTransform, MRI Software’s Richard Belgrave and Angelica Donati, chief executive of Donati S.p.a & Donati Immobiliare Group about AI and machine learning in real estate.
