Robin Blacklock

, Dowbrae Property Consultancy

Robin has been at the forefront of the Build-to-Rent market in Scotland since 2012 when he introduced the concept at Grosvenor’s Springside development at Fountainbridge in Edinburgh. Following a trip to the USA in early 2013 to better understand their equivalent market, Robin returned with an energy and enthusiasm for the sector which saw him lead a successful planning consent for a mixed use project anchored by 400+ build-to-rent units at Springside. He has also been instrumental in raising the profile of Build to Rent in Scotland, both in terms of introducing the concept to the industry, but also in the political arena around planning, promotion of the sector and tenancy reform.

Following the successful sale of the Springside site to Moda Living in early 2017, Robin set up Dowbrae Property Consultancy and splits his time between leading the development of the £250m mixed-use scheme, The Haymarket Edinburgh, and consulting on Build to Rent.
