Our History

A snapshot of our historical journey


The Berkeley Group was established by Tony Pidgley CBE and Jim Farrer. The company initially focused on the construction of single homes and executive development.

It quickly became renowned for the quality of its product and exceptional customer service. Consequently, the business grew at a rapid pace.


Berkeley gained a full listing on the London Stock Exchange.

In less than ten years of operation, Berkeley had grown from an entrepreneurial business capitalised at £50,000 to a fully listed group valued at over £67 million.


Berkeley has increasingly focused on large-scale brownfield regeneration sites where our holistic approach to placemaking and community building can deliver lasting positive change.


In 2012, the Berkeley Group expanded its global presence by opening its first international offices in Hong Kong and Singapore. These strategic moves signalled the Group's commitment to reaching a wider, diverse clientele and fostering relationships with global partners and investors.

Up until now, our current portfolio consists of 6 brands, with 63,270 future homes across 96 sites. We are now bringing forward 30 of the largest and most complex brownfield regenerations, a number of which are now in, or coming into, production.

Berkeley, founded in 1976, is the Group's largest division. The group operates mainly in London and the South of England on a diverse range of projects, from large regenerations to specialties like the Crossrail station box at Royal Arsenal Riverside.

Founded as a joint venture company co-owned by the Berkeley Group and M&G Investments, St. Edward is the powerful combination of the two companies’ strengths and complementary skills that provide a strong vehicle for delivering unique residentially-led developments.

St George's main focus is on transforming large areas of brownfield land to revive the city landscape and create thriving new destinations. Some of St George's iconic developments are now featured on the London skyline.

Founded in 1996 as a joint venture with Thames Water, St James has built a reputation as a design-conscious developer over two decades. St James is committed to regenerating sites into attractive, environmentally-friendly developments.

St Joseph is Berkeley Group's newest brand based in the Midlands. The business believes that inspiring public realm is the cornerstone of a happy, thriving community and it is committed to delivering the very best developments for local people.

As a joint venture between National Grid and Berkeley Group, St William's mission is to transform aged industrial sites into beautiful homes. St William will unlock some of the most technically complex regeneration sites at the heart of communities across London and the South of England, making homes accessible to all.
