Our Activities

Investors in Lincoln has been successfully involved in different ways in a range of projects over the years and has contributed on a regular basis to the activities of others, in line with its mission.

A very important early project was the development of the Greetwell Place Managed Workspace. This could not have been achieved by either the public or private sector working alone, but a combination of the two brought the development to fruition in a very short timescale. Greetwell Place is currently leased by Investors in Lincoln to the City of Lincoln Council for the provision of Managed Workspace.
