Gareth established Generation Estates with Alan Artus in January 2004.
As a result of student accommodation experience gained prior to Generation Estates, Gareth originated the opportunity to acquire and develop 200 Pentonville Road as a sizeable mixed use scheme anchored by purpose built student accommodation. The completed project Nido Kings Cross, redefined student living in London. Through successful joint ventures with both The Blackstone Group and The Carlyle Group, Generation has been at the forefront of the purpose built student accommodation market for more than a decade as one of the leading developers and an experienced operator in the sector.
Prior to forming Generation Estates, Gareth was a Director of The Osborne Group where he managed a series of mixed use projects in London often in joint ventures with Manhattan Loft Corporation. Gareth started his career at St Quintin in the City of London and was subsequently a partner at Grimley JR Eve.
Gareth holds an honours degree from the University of Reading where he read Land Management qualifying as a Chartered Surveyor in 1985.
