About Us

4C Group manages and develops properties and hotels in key business districts and leisure hot spots across the UK, Middle East, East Africa and Canada. The company was formed in 2010, building on the foundations of a family property business that stretches back to the 1990s. 

In 2021, 4C Group added two new developments to their portfolio including the five-star Westin London City and Canopy by Hilton London City. Both hotels represent the first in market for the UK-based Marriott and Hilton luxury and lifestyle brands.

In 2022, 4C Group partnered with Regal London and Pluto Finance to deliver The Haydon, a residential tower of 87 apartments in Aldgate in the heart of the City of London, which is now complete.
