Initially, the company operated as a subsidiary of Abbey National (formerly called the National Freehold Land Society). By 2002, the total assets for British Land were worth $15 billion. The company made several major acquisitions in the last decade of the 20th Century and early 2000s including the purchase of Pillar Property plc, Broadgate office complex in London, and Meadowhall shopping complex in Sheffield. British Land is involved in several other joint ventures focused on the real estate sector. Primarily, the company develops and sells office space and retail complexes across the UK. The company divides its products into two categories, Offices portfolio, and Retail portfolio. British Land is a recipient of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise. The company’s shares trade on the London Stock Exchange with BLND as its ticker. Company headquarters are in London, United Kingdom.
