St James was established in 1996, originally as a joint venture with Thames Water. Over the past 20 years, the company has established a reputation as a design-conscious developer regenerating brownfield sites and transforming them into attractive developments whose design not only creates desirable places to live, but also has a positive impact on the environment.
St James is a proud member of The Berkeley Group, a UK leader in the visionary delivery of major urban regeneration schemes. The Group has been responsible for shaping much of the modern development along central London's riverside, replacing former industrial areas with vibrant places to live, work and play.
St James' commitment to the quality and design of the buildings is matched by a commitment to making a vital contribution to the landscape, to the communities the company helps create, and to the environment as a whole.
Sustainability is vital to the way St James operates. Already leading the field in sustainable development, standards are being raised even higher through the Berkeley Our Vision initiative.
Berkeley Group was awarded the UK's highest accolade for business success - The Queen's Award for Enterprise for Sustainable Development 2014. This is the second time the Group has been recognised, having previously won the award in 2008. The award recognises five years of continuous achievement in delivering sustainable development.
