Future London

Published on

Our recent acquisition of the Soho Square Estate, W1 represents a fantastic opportunity to transform a strategic West End freehold site into a new best-in-class headquarters building perfectly suited to the demands of the modern customer.

The 0.5 acre site is located at the eastern end of Oxford Street, in a area we know well, just 100 metres from the new Tottenham Court Road Elizabeth line station. The existing collection of buildings are at the end of their economic life and the site benefits from planning consent to deliver a brand new building spanning the entirety of the site. Ahead of an anticipated start in Q1 2025, we intend to improve the building design by adding new area and improving the quality of space to further increase its attractiveness to prospective customers. Once complete, the building will provide 100,300 sq ft of new Grade A offices on Soho Square and prime retail space on Oxford Street. The office building will be arranged over basement, lower ground, ground and eight upper floors, with multiple private terraces and a communal roof terrace and will deliver best-in-class sustainability metrics.

The Soho Square Estate is a great addition to a development pipeline that is already stacked with future opportunity. Our plans will greatly improve the local environment, provide support for London’s economy and deliver a lasting sustainable impact on London’s future.
