For makers and shapers of place
The Developer is a publication for enlightened real estate developers working in the private and public sector along with their investors, local government, architects, placemakers and project teams. It’s major event, the Festival of Place, brings its audience together to learn, inspire and debate the future of placemaking.
We inform and connect professionals working in the development and design of urban spaces through our journalism, podcast, films, magazine and live at the annual Festival of Place, breaking down silos to bring professionals together to define what makes a place worth living in; cities where people thrive.
By supporting us on Patreon from just £3, you’ll help us keep our journalism free and open to everyone
We bring together developers, investors, local government, architects, urban designers and the wider project and placemaking team through inspiring events and media channels. We give free and subsidised tickets away to charities, community groups and those who need them.
The Developer and the Festival of Place is about how to build communities that thrive, where people want to live, work, play and learn.
The Developer is the brainchild of Christine Murray, former Editor-in-Chief of the Architects’ Journal and The Architectural Review, working in partnership with former colleague James Macleod, now Portfolio Director.
