Urban Exposure has completed two loans worth a combined £89.7m to residential developer SevenCapital.

The scheme has a forecast GDV of £67m and planning consent in place, with the developer already owning the land, having built a 253-bed hotel at the front of the site.

Randeesh Sandhu, CEO at Urban Exposure, commented: “St Martin’s Place is set in one of the UK’s fastest-growing and largest cities and will service a growing need for housing in the area.”
