Below is a small extract of the article, you’ll find a link below this to read the article in full.
Sam Ibgi, 30-year-old British founder and CEO of Buckingham & Lloyds, is a new player in London’s luxury real estate sector, providing five-star, fully-serviced accommodation in Kensington and Knightsbridge.
Buckingham & Lloyds’ properties offer quality furnishings, high-end amenities and terraces with views over Hyde Park, all a stone’s throw from the city’s top attractions. But more than that, it is bridging the gap between hotels and apartments. Accommodation boasts the top-quality amenities and services that you would expect from a five-star hotel, as well as the comfort, intimacy and price point of an apartment stay.
Ibgi now plans to take his brand global, laying the groundwork to put at least one building in each of the Tier 1 cities worldwide. “The world is moving very quickly away from people just wanting to own an apartment or stay at a hotel,” he explains. “People are traveling much more. Many people can now work from anywhere. We’re focused on the 40% of people who are mobile, internationally-minded and equipped with money to spend. And we want to give them a 100% experience, something that is fully equipped, extremely high-quality and that feels like home.”
