Borough Junction London are an Urban Development company, primarily dealing with commercial development assets. We take advantage of under-utilized or under-invested buildings and sites within the office, hotel, and residential sectors. We develop-operate both individual assets and portfolios.
With our extensive skill set and highly experienced partners, we are regenerating the City’s intricate urban fabric and modernising its unique history.
We are not a housebuilder, rather, we are custodians for every part of the city we are involved in. We look at projects differently – merging the eye of an architect, operator, and developer together as one.

He has a unique ability to position himself ahead of the curve, both in the locations he chooses and opportunities he develops. Raj works with design practitioners, investors and stakeholders to push the commercial boundaries of each development.
Having trained at the Oxford School of Architecture and University College London (Bartlett), Raj worked at award winning practices ORMS and Ian Simpson Architects. Being an Architect, Developer and Entrepreneur, Raj brings a unique skill set coupled with excellent industry experience and often contrarian methodology, which is vital to success within an ever-changing commercial landscape.
”We have been given an unbelievable opportunity to redesign the way we live our lives and occupy our urban spaces. We must be resourceful, employ our creativity, and learn how to use cities more efficiently. From a real estate point of view that is very exciting and Borough Junction have the talent and skill to deliver their vision.”
