Sellar Property Group chairman and founder Irvine Sellar was at the Summit to discuss how he’d gone from “selling fashion clothes on market stalls to being the creator and developer of Western Europe’s tallest building”.
On the Shard, Mr Sellar recalls: “Industry sceptics said we’d never get planning consent; when we did, they said we’d never finance it; when we did, they said we’d never build it; when we did, they said we’d never lease it; The Shard is now 95 per cent leased; all hopes of progress with the unreasonable man.”
