Thriving communities, not just buildings.
We leverage data to create vibrant places that address people’s changing lifestyles, help entrepreneurial retail businesses succeed, and deliver on commercial imperatives for property developers and landlords.
Location Intelligence
In partnership with BlueRock’s industry-leading PropTech business, propella.ai, we deliver new insights on placemaking opportunities through cutting-edge data intelligence. This includes market assessment of the retail opportunities and threats, as well as incredible insights into the behaviours, characteristics and attitudes of workers, residents and visitors.
Placemaking Strategy
We recommend the right amenity, services and experiences for your property to help drive community engagement. This is informed by sophisticated location intelligence, retail industry insight, financial modelling and property experience in precinct development, asset repositioning and leasing.
Property Marketing
Our placemakers are armed with amazing data intelligence and placemaking insights to translate your vision into a destination that excites people. We work with marketing specialists BlueRock Digital to create engaging brands and collateral utilising CGI, photography, video, websites, digital marketing and PR.
Retail Brokerage
Our experience in asset and development management and running retail businesses means we understand the needs of all parties. Our balanced approach to leasing stems from working with the tenant and landlord on the right business model for the right location, then structuring lease terms for a win-win outcome.
Corporate Real Estate Advisory
Attracting and retaining the best talent is critical. We work with Australia’s leading companies to integrate amenity such as cafes and catering into the workplace, which encourage social connection, create day-to-day efficiencies and make people’s lives more convenient, healthy, fun and productive.
Our end-to-end approach streamlines the placemaking process and drives value for retailers, developers, landlords and tenants.

Finally finding and working with Leigh and Nick and their team at BlueRock was a momentous occasion for my wife and I, in our decision to remain in Australia after emigrating from the UK 5 years earlier. They provided such sound, holistic financial advice across a whole range of products (from house moves to schooling) which gave us the certainty we needed that we could have the lifestyle we wanted down under, alongside the great weather and beaches! Leigh and Nick have become trusted advisors that we turn to for every significant (and not so significant!) financial decision. We love their proactivity in providing us financial guidance and tips, even those we are not expecting (like topping up our super at year-end). We can't recommend them highly enough!

Writing a will was something myself and my partner had been making attempts at for several years. After many faulted starts we would hit inevitable brick walls surrounding the details for our children and complexities of trusts etc. With my business finances being dealt with so professionally through BlueRock, I queried if estate management fell under their umbrella. Fortunately, it does! From the beginning, Ryan was very personable and simplified the process to a point where we could focus on the correct decisions for ourselves and our families. Looking back, we were correct in that the process was daunting without help and Ryan brought up many other points we were totally ignorant of which could have had a huge impact on our estate management and wishes. We would highly recommend Ryan and the BlueRock team to anyone.

My experience working with BlueRock has been exceptional. I sought to find the best in the business and feel that BlueRock surpassed my expectations; in particular Daniel Zaffino. His work ethic, knowledge, willingness to help and educate is second to none. Without Daniel and the team I wouldn’t have been able to achieve my ambitious financial goals as quickly as I did, buying my first investment property at 23 and buying my dad his dream car (74’ Ford Falcon Coupe). Reaching these goals has been a massive milestone for me and I can thank BlueRock for helping with reaching that. I would certainly recommend engaging the team at BlueRock.
