YardNine grows team with Development Manager

YardNine has grown its London-based team with the appointment of Sam Palk as Development Manager. Sam brings 6 years of experience and joins from Lendlease, where he worked within the Development and Investment Capital Markets teams. He specialises in complex multi-asset developments in London, the wider UK and Europe, with a focus on development finance and investment.

Sam will work alongside the existing team to help continue its successful track record in the delivery of projects in London, whilst also supporting the business as it continues to grow.


Sam’s appointment follows a strong period of activity for YardNine, including the practical completion of EightyFen, delivering more than 240,000 sq ft of Grade A office accommodation in the City of London, and the forthcoming delivery of 75,000 sq ft of Grade A office accommodation, 10,000 sq ft of retail space and seven mews houses due before Christmas 2021 at 50 Eastbourne Terrace; and the imminent start on site to deliver a 369-bed hotel pre-let to Whitbread plc at 40 Eastbourne Terrace in Paddington. Most recently, YardNine won planning consent for the complete redevelopment of 100 Fetter Lane with its partner, BauMont Real Estate Capital, with plans to deliver a new 12-storey, net-zero carbon emissions office scheme.


Maxwell Shand, Director of YardNine said: “Since YardNine’s launch in 2017, we have been on an exciting and fast-paced journey, working with leading investment partners to deliver best-in-class assets that are setting a new standard for sustainability and health in the built environment. We very much look forward to continuing this with Sam on board and benefitting from his experience working on projects arounds the UK.”


Sam Palk said: “This is a great opportunity to join a company that is at a pivotal stage in its growth, and I look forward to working with the team to continue the successful development of YardNine.”
