The Oakapple Group

Oakapple is a successful and dynamic property business founded in Leeds in the early 1990’s by Group Chairman, Philip Taylor.

In the twenty plus years which have followed, Oakapple has grown into a well-known, customer focused business, developing over 100 schemes across most sectors of the property market. 

Diverse Track Record

Oakapple work right across the property spectrum - from Town Centre Retail to Multi-practice Health Centres - from Neighbourhood Regeneration to Contemporary London Apartments. See our Portfolio Pages for a flavour of what we could do working with you.

Working Relationships

Oakapple values its working relationships with clients and their professional teams - so essential to successful delivery of a project. We have a “can do” approach and every project is run by a senior individual operating at Director level, and is the point of contact for you, our client.


Challenging Projects are all in a day’s work. Our track record includes development of contentious and sensitive sites, including refurbishing important listed buildings, and working alongside Community Groups. Many of our projects have been mixed-use schemes, taking advantage of Oakapple's experience across different sectors.

Where we work

Whilst proud of our Yorkshire roots, Oakapple has never been confined by geography and 2016 saw completion of our second development in London - a £20m mixed use scheme in Clapham. Other areas we have worked in include the North East of England and the Welsh Borders.


Oakapple is proud to have received awards both for Outstanding Design and for our success on challenging Regeneration Schemes.See our Portfolio Pages for details of some of the exciting projects we have developed.

In addition to its property activities, the Group has interests in Renewable Energy and Private Healthcare.

And a word from the chairman Philip Taylor……………

“I am extremely proud of the way we have grown from small beginnings into one of the largest and most successful independent property developers in the region.

I believe this success can be attributed to our vision, our versatility and the strength of the team we are fortunate to have within the Group.

Take a look at our portfolio and you will see that we have developed a significant number of very exciting projects throughout the UK, and are working on many more. In addition our Estates team is working closely with agents and landowners in order to build an impressive land bank for future developments.

If you are interested in developing a relationship with the Oakapple Group we would be delighted to hear from you.”
