Strategic Land & Regeneration

St. Modwen’s extraordinary 30-year history and reputation has been built by looking at things a bit differently.

We have created opportunities where none existed, taking on challenges which others cannot. We’re proud of what we have achieved, breathing life into communities and creating places that matter. Places that offer employment, quality homes for families, and leisure, retail and open spaces that make life better.

We believe in a different kind of regeneration, which creates places and experiences that deliver shared value, builds a lasting legacy and contributes to better futures for all: placemaking.

Placemaking is about reimagining and improving public spaces with the community’s core needs, identity and wellbeing as the foundations for every design decision. Our breakthrough regeneration projects curve and bend around all the different ways a community lives, powering the local economy and supporting the natural environment at the same time.

Our purpose is to give new meaning to those communities and to the environments we develop. This is our revolution in regeneration.


We are spearheading a £1 billion investment into Longbridge, in one of the West Midlands’ largest-ever regeneration projects. Our story began in 2001 when we were selected as a development partner for 57 acres of surplus land. In the following years, we acquired a further 411 acres and, following the collapse of MG Rover in 2005, set about transforming Longbridge into a mixed-use, high quality urban environment.

St. Andrew’s Park

Centred around London’s new 32-acre park, we are building a new community at the former RAF Uxbridge site in Hillingdon. In an exciting mix of heritage and modernity, the mixed-use site will showcase the very best of St. Modwen Homes’ design-led ethos, while the site’s historic centrepiece, Hillingdon House, will be carefully brought back from dilapidation.

Swansea Bay Campus

Our £450m regeneration programme in South Wales, Swansea Bay Campus is part of Swansea University, situated on a former BP site in Neath Port Talbot and now one of the largest knowledge economy schemes in Europe.

The Trentham Estate

Through a bold and imaginative regeneration project, we rescued The Trentham Estate, a national treasure on the brink of collapse, and turned it into a national visitor attraction. It now boasts award-winning gardens, historic parkland and restored listed buildings, plus a few unexpected delights, welcoming three million visitors every year.

New Covent Garden Market

In July 2015 we broke ground on a truly remarkable project: the regeneration of London’s world-famous fruit, vegetable and flower market. Our plans will transform its 57-acre site into an exciting new destination for London’s food community, guiding this beacon of British history into the 21st century.
