The developer

Scarborough Group International has a truly global reach with a reputation for delivery. With a proven track record across the UK, it remains one of the UK’s most active privately owned development organisations, having a portfolio with a Group Gross Development Value of over £1 billion.

Founded by Kevin McCabe in 1980, Scarborough Group International has grown from a UK based real estate developer and investor into a global organisation focussing predominantly on real estate with other past and present business interests in Europe, North America, Myanmar, Australia, Hong Kong, India, China and the United Kingdom.

Scarborough is now in its fourth decade of business, having developed into a global group with a diverse portfolio. We have a comprehensive investment portfolio which encompasses all aspects of real estate, interests in leisure – most notably a 50% stake in Sheffield United Football Club – as well as additional investments in a number of other sectors.

Working together with our global network of partners, Scarborough Group International has a prestigious track record of property investment and development, primarily residential and commercial, including offices, business parks, retail, distribution and warehouse units, and shopping complexes.

Close relationships with long standing joint venture partners have led to significant growth and diversification in our global property development and investment portfolio, which over the past 30 years has grown to encompass every aspect of real estate.

Scarborough Group International remains one of the UK’s most active development organisations with a range of projects either underway, on site, or planned to commence in the near feature with a Group Gross Development Value approaching over £1 billion.


Scarborough has rebranded its Residential division under the banner of FairBriar Group, a corporate name emanating from a formerly well-established and respected housebuilder which in recent past years saw Scarborough Group with a controlling interest. Hualing Group and Metro are partners in the Fairbriar Joint Venture with Scarborough Group being the majority share holder.
