The United Kingdom Centre for Medical Research and Innovation

The full list of bidders | February 11, 2011

The information below was extracted from data released under the FOIA by the DCMS. There were 27 bidders (other documents suggest 28 bidders but none list the bidders).  With regard to the Camden planning brief the breakdown was:

 12 definitely complied with planning brief

 1  appeared to comply with planning brief

 7  did not  comply with planning brief (This includes UKCRMI)

 4  It was impossible to tell from the information provided

 2 No opinion was stated

 1 was an indeterminate comment (Thornsett Group)

Those meeting the planning brief included obvious serious players such as Redrow, Barratt Homes and Wimpey. Therefore, the DCMS cannot claim that there was no realistic chance of selling to a bidder who met the planning brief.

The bidders

1. Development Securities Plc  and Granger Plc (JV)

2. Oracle Group  

3. Minerva 

4 Tudorvale properties

5. City Lofts Group   

6.. Thornsett Group plc/CIT Group plc 

7. Terrace Hill Group plc  

8. The Partnership/ Cancer Research UK/Medical Research Council/The Wellcome Trust – this is UKCRMI

9. Henderson Global Investors (With First Base/ Notting Hill Housing Association).

10. First Regeneration Homes/  Princeton Investments Ltd/Tiger Developments Ltd

11. Splendid Hotel Group

12. Pantherlee Ltd  

13. Barratt Homes 

14. The Merchant Property Group/Capital and Counties

15. Redrow Regeneration ( Commercial partner – Commercial Estates Group)

16. Bee Bee Developments Ltd

17. Leander   

18. City & Docklands/ Scarborough Development Group (JV)

19. Taylor Wimpey Development London Region. Partnered by Bride Hall Developments

20. Criterion Capital Ltd

21. Places for People (RSL)  

22. Landmark Developers with The Ability Group

23. Marcol Group/Nicholas James Group Ltd

24. Community Housing Association  

25. Coexist Foundation  

26. St James Group (Berkley Group)

27. London and Regional  Holdings Ltd   

I attempted unsuccessfully to obtain from the DCMS the names of those who made it to the short list of nine (the names were withheld on the grounds of commercial confidentiality).
