Property tycoon Robert Johnson’s empire has been reborn with a new property empire in the UK’s capital.
The property group has bought property in London, Birmingham and Manchester and set up a £2.7m headquarters in the city’s Hyde Park, near the site of the former Hyde Park Zoo.
“We’re building a brand new property and it will be a major milestone for us,” Mr Johnson told BBC News.
“The main thing for us is to take it to the next level and we are delighted with the new space we’ve found in the Hyde Park area.”
We’re hoping to attract more investors in the area to help us make the project a reality.
“My vision is that this is a property that will become a major asset in the wider UK economy.” “
I’m looking forward with enthusiasm to putting the new property up for sale and building it up as quickly as possible,” he said.
“My vision is that this is a property that will become a major asset in the wider UK economy.”
He said his company was “building the biggest property portfolio of any company in the world”.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for the world to watch us grow and expand,” he added.
“Our portfolio is very ambitious, it’s the biggest and most successful property portfolio in the history of the world.”
Mr Jones’ estate, which includes a small hotel and a small home in the former B&Q, was bought in 2010 for £3.2m.
The company, known as Liberty Property, said the property, which was bought by Mr Johnson’s sons and nephew, would become the “world’s largest residential property”.
Mr Johnson and his son have made an estimated $3.5bn from the property empire, which has included the construction of luxury properties in Europe and the United States.
The billionaire family has also invested in the British Virgin Islands, including a £5.7bn deal in the Cayman Islands.
Mr Jones, a former US marine and Navy Seal, is also known as the father of the super yacht and was among the biggest investors in Virgin Atlantic and was an adviser to President George W Bush.
He died in 2011 aged 84.
The estate has been in the family since the 1950s and was bought with a loan from the estate of Charles Darrow, who was a friend of Mr Johnson.
The Johnson estate has a staff of about 200 people, and Mr Johnson is a frequent guest of the prime minister, David Cameron.
In the 1970s, the property was owned by the British Commonwealth Trust, which Mr Johnson helped to found.
The trust is now known as The Johnson Group.
It was founded in 1885 by John A. Smith, who used his influence to buy the London property for $500,000.
Mr Smith died in 1929.
Mr Johnson was a wealthy London property owner before becoming a philanthropist in the 1980s, and in the 1990s, he helped the family of the late singer and broadcaster Johnny Mercer.
He also owned the London Borough of Lambeth, and had his own office in the White House.
“Robert was an amazing, extraordinary man and we owe him a huge debt of gratitude for the services he rendered to our community over the past several decades,” Mr Cameron said.
