Abstract

This paper contributes to existing research on the relational work of real estate developers to demonstrate how internal corporate complexities create opaqueness in governance settings and limit potential community engagement. This work is particularly pertinent at a time when there is renewed interest in the private sector, yet very little analysis which be-gins from the perspective of the developer. Drawing on the example of London’s Sil-vertown, this paper shows how the strategies of development organisations evident in ex-isting research, including their work with the public sector, communities and experts, re-quire multiple levels of internal co-ordination. I argue that because of these sub-centres of power developers are able to maintain a more deeply entrenched centrality in urban governance.
