What we do

The City Property Association is a not-for-profit body representing the major owners, occupiers, developers, investors and advisers to real estate in the City of London, with more than 150 member companies and an associated network of nearly 1500 professionals.

It represents the property industry as a collective voice to inform policy and help drive the economic prosperity of the City. The CPA commissions research, hosts seminars and receptions, shares best practice and showcases the property industry’s contribution to the City.

As well as its annual joint research with the City of London Corporation launched at MIPIM, it has recently led on the creation of a new digital platform, OneCity, to help promote the City’s increasingly diverse leisure, retail and cultural offer to a younger generation of workers, so critical to the area’s future appeal to business and its ongoing success.

Alongside its sister association, the Westminster Property Association, the CPA represents central London’s property sector under the joint banner of London Property Alliance, engaging with politicians, civic leaders and policy makers at local, London and national level.

The activities of both associations are led and managed by a single Executive team, but retain their individual membership bases and board and committee structures. The CPA President serves a two year term, and is elected by the Board.
