Enda Mc Guane MD of Winters Property commented that:
“While we are now providing a lot of development consultancy services to support the construction of badly needed new properties nationwide, it’s great to see that our core Property Management business continues to excel. Once again our team have been recognised on a national stage for their industry leading standards and excellent customer service. The Property Sector has rightly become highly regulated in recent years and WPM have been to the forefront of this process. Ultimately our goal is to deliver best in class services to our clients every day we go to work.”
Commenting on the property market and the launch of the National Development Plan (NDP) he said
“We can see on a daily basis the impact that the current shortage of residential properties is having both on our economy and society. It’s very important for Galway and the region that we get more Residential and Commercial projects completed. Galway is in danger of losing out to other locations when it comes to future FDI investment unless we address the current shortages. The NDP while positive identifies some large-scale long-term infrastructure projects which will benefit the city and region over the long term. However in the short to medium term, we need to look to development sites in our city centre to ensure that we can maximise use of existing rail transport to address traffic issue. Based on our broad range of experience we are driving innovative solutions in the residential sector through our focus on Build to Rent and Collective Living developments which when managed and operated to a high standard provide high quality and affordable city centre accommodation.”
“We really need to move beyond a “one size fits all approach” when it comes to looking at the city. The types of residential and commercial space we build in the future needs to meet the requirements of the people it’s built for. The first question we ask when it comes to any potential site is who will live there and what do they need to make it a home. So for example while millennials place more value on communal areas seniors looking to downsize are concerned about the size of their internal living area. Both want an apartment in a central location at an affordable price. Similarly when it comes to social housing there is an increasing demand for one bedroom apartments based on peoples circumstances.”
