In the 1970s and 1980s it acquired large residential estates from British Coal, British Rail and Reckitt & Coleman. It was first listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1983. In 1989 it acquired Channel Hotels & Properties and in 2003 it acquired Bradford Property Trust.

In 2008 a consortium of Helical Bar and Grainger was named as the preferred developer for the King Street regeneration scheme in Hammersmith.
