From quality consultancy to developer and placemaker
Cordia Blackswan was founded by Marcus Hawley as Blackswan Property Limited in 2009. Offering consultancy services to local authorities, housing associations and property investors, Blackswan’s reputation grew alongside the business as the go-to BTR and mixed-use property developer in the Midlands.
The cornerstones of Cordia Blackswan’s success include empathetic high-quality design and a bespoke development approach. Having earned a reputation for working in conservation areas and sensitively restoring heritage properties while adding value to investors and local residents, now the Cordia Blackswan vision encompasses a broader placemaking agenda which seeks to fully bridge the gap between the commercial value and the community impact.
Blackswan’s vision and ambition caught the attention of European property powerhouse, Cordia Group. Known for their developments across Hungary, Poland, Spain, Romania and Germany, the multiple international award-winning group from Hungary extended an invitation to Blackswan to be part of the Cordia family in 2020.
This partnership between Cordia and Blackswan has created a pipeline in excess of £600 million in GDV, comprising over 1,800 homes, as well as more than 350,000 sq.ft space for commercial uses across the West Midlands.
