Emma Cariaga to discuss BtR within wider mixed-use developments in her ALT/RESI keynote

SPACE+, the leading platform for progressive and alternative property leaders, has announced that Emma Cariaga, British Land’s Joint Head of the Canada Water Development and Head of Residential, will be a keynote speaker at ALT/RESI UK.


ALT/RESI UK, taking place on 27th April at The New White Loft in London, is the new residential event from SPACE+.


Notable for its human-centric focus, 50% female Co-Hosts, creation of industry ‘Tribes’ and unique venues, SPACE+ events are increasingly seen as the ‘new school’ of the property industry.


The keynote

There’s a shift in thinking from Built to Rent as a stand-alone product, to being part of a wider mixed-use development.

In her Main Stage Keynote at ALT/RESI UK, Emma Cariaga will discuss BtR within the masterplanning of new campuses and neighborhoods. This is the second time Emma will keynote a SPACE+ event, after her debut at SPACE UK 2019.

“We’re delighted to welcome Emma Cariaga back to our Main Stage. Emma is a brilliant speaker, who cares about the long-term value of placemaking. Her new additional role as BL’s Head of Residential will add a new dimension to the outlook of BtR within mega projects,” says Rob Marten, Co-Founder of SPACE+.


Emma jointly leads the development of Canada Water, a 53 acre development project in Central London. She joined British Land’s Executive Committee in 2019 and became Head of Residential in 2021.

ALT/RESI programme

The programme for ALT/RESI is an enticing combination of Main Stage Keynotes and Panels, SPACE+’s intimate ‘Tribe’ Discussion Groups, networking opportunities and VIP Dinners.


Emma Cariaga, and fellow keynote Helen Gordon, leads a programme that includes Speakers and Co-Hosts from KKR, L&G Capital, Greystar, Lendlease, Common, Oxford Properties, Quintain, Invesco Real Estate, Packaged Living, Argent Related, Notting Hill Genesis and many other BtR, PBSA, Co-Living and Retirement investors, developers and operators.
