We are excited to welcome Tim to City Sanctuary. Tim Barlow has 34 years of varied experience in real estate. He is the co-founder and COO of Squarestone, established in 2001. The company attempts to spot real estate development and investment opportunities and then create operational platforms to deliver them. Platforms have included Squarestone Growth (SG) and HUB Residential (HUB). SG was established in 2015 and was backed by South African institutional investor Old Mutual acquiring regional high yielding assets with value add angles. This reached a portfolio size of 30 assets and close to a million square feet before being sold in 2021.
HUB was incubated by Squarestone in 2011 and is now a growing standalone entity and successful contributor to the living sector and more specifically Build to Rent, PBSA, Co-Living and Aparthotels. It has delivered over 2,000 mid-market homes across Greater London and is now active in regional lifestyle cities as well. It has in excess of 1,600 units under construction and a further 3,400 in the pipeline, including BTR, PBSA, Aparthotel beds and Co-living units.
