Location planning

Learn more about locations of interest, from towns to major cities, with data-driven location analyses that illuminate feasibility and uncover the most lucrative opportunities.

Unparalleled locational insights that drive strategy

Where a workplace is located is disproportionately reflected in its chances of succeeding. The optimum location can drastically increase its ability to meet local demand. Get it wrong, though, and the venture can be blighted from the start. The importance of getting location decisions right can’t be overstated, whether you’re a brand new operator looking to launch your first workplace or a sector giant expanding into a new city.

Spaces to Places works with leading third-party data providers, alongside conducting our own primary research, to meet diverse location research briefs. From a macro overview of a city of interest to a feasibility study investigating the prospects in a town, we can deliver insights that are invaluable in guiding location strategy. With over 30 years of experience in commercial property research in the team, we’re capable of transforming how you see locational intelligence.

We can also build a prioritised Network Blueprint for the UK, identifying the number of workers in job categories that are most likely to be office-based, the amount of branded shared offices in each market, and a supply and demand ratio for any town or locale across the country. The output from this work is a prioritised ranking of the best opportunities across the UK to support proactive investments and a wealth of instantly accessible data that can be used to assess market opportunities.
