Creative Places Create Value Report from our partners Creative Land Trust

Just two weeks ago we launched Creative Places Create Value. A research paper commissioned, in collaboration with Get Living and Creative Estuary, proving that creative spaces add real value to residential places.

In an introduction to the report, Gordon Seabright said “As we all know there are many great reasons to ensure artists and makers are planned into developments, however, it is important to provide the tools developers need to persuade investors and partners of the financial benefits, creatives and creative industries.”

Researchers at Hawinks Brown, DataLoft and Ramidus found a positive association between the presence of creative workspace and residential property values.

Key findings included:

– Values in creative clusters outperformed the London average by 4.4% per annum over 10 years while.
– Creative workspace as a ground floor commercial use does not add material risk and can add value.
– Values in creative clusters in the Thames Estuary outperformed the area average by 3.3% per annum over 5 years.
