In an effort to make sense of the land values in the city, Mishon Mackay Land & Development thought it might be useful to see how much land you could buy for £1m – the theoretical result is 22m x 22m, or 70’ x 70’ in old money. To put that into perspective the land beneath your feet right now is probably worth £500. Such is the demand for land in the city land values have risen over the last 3 years.
To try and put this in some perspective is a little more complex. Height, location, depth, design, topography and timing all have a bearing on the value of land explains Matthew Hollywood of Mishon Mackay Land in Brighton. ‘Over the past 5 years we have seen land values range from £500,000 an acre to a staggering £8m an acres’; however he quickly caveats these figures. ‘We wouldn’t want land owners in the area to believe that all land is worth £8m/acre however the norm is certainly £4-£5m/acre for a small, high quality, efficient, city centre development of apartments.’
