Established success in 140 cities worldwide
For more than 20 years, R&F Properties Group (R&F) has been engaged in a diverse portfolio that includes real estate development, hotel development, commercial operation, recreation and tourism and healthcare, establishing themselves as one of the top 10 real estate development enterprises in China.
Founded by Mr LI Sze Lim and Mr Zhang Li in 1994 in Guangzhou, China, by the end of 2001 R&F had completed 10 renovation projects totalling a floor area of more than 2,500,000 square metres and by 2005 was the first real estate company from mainland China to be listed on the Main Board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.

Fast forward to today where R&F has diversified into new sectors including healthcare and tourism and now is considered the world’s largest owner of luxury hotels, currently operating 90 hotels with a further 42 under construction.
Building communities worldwide
But it’s not just in China where the R&F name has become established as a leading developer. The global property group also has interests in Malaysia, the United Kingdom and here in Australia.
In the United Kingdom, R&F has a current development pipeline in London of approximately 4,000 residential apartments.

Included in this development pipeline is Queen’s Square, a multi building development that will refurbish an existing 22 storey office tower into 225 residential apartments and the refurbishment of a 5 storey office building into a mixed use building with the addition of 7 storeys.
R&F is also developing an exclusive riverside district, One Thames City, which will deliver premium residences, shops and restaurants in a desirable central London location.
In Malaysia, R&F is developing a premium residential and commercial development that is the first of its kind in South East Asia. Dubbed the ‘HOPSCA Marina Living Concept’, R&F Princess Cove encompasses hotels, offices, parks, shopping precincts, clubhouses and residential apartments.

Bringing this experience home
R&F first brought this passion for crating world-class developments to Australia in 2014 with the acquisition of 1 Cordelia Street, South Brisbane, which is now home to Brisbane One Towers, a multi building residential development in South East Queensland.
Their experience in creating masterplanned communities was once again realised with the conception of Live City, a new mixed-use precinct in Footscray, 6km from the Melbourne CBD. With stage one of the masterplan already complete, future stages promise to deliver more of the leading quality that R&F is known for globally.
Stepping into a new space with Maison, a boutique house and land community in Rochedale, an affluent suburb south-east of Brisbane, R&F has once again proven their experience in designing desirable communities that meet the needs of local buyers.
With more projects in the pipeline, the indisputable success of the R&F Properties Group is underpinned by their commitment to integrity, innovation and adaptability that allows them to achieve the best possible outcomes from concept through to completion.
