Land Securities Group PLC (‘Land Securities’) has let 18,000 sq ft at 123 Victoria Street to Ophir Energy PLC.

Ophir Energy, the FTSE 250 oil and gas exploration company, is relocating from its existing Mayfair headquarters to join existing tenants such as US software company Intuit, CDC Group, CPA Global and Jimmy Choo at 123 Victoria Street.

The move reinforces Victoria’s position as the destination of choice for a wide range of businesses including luxury fashion, energy and resources and the financial sector, and follows a spate of lettings at Land Securities’ 62 Buckingham Gate last year.

This latest letting means 123 Victoria Street is now 93% let with just 17,000 sq ft still available.

Kaela Fenn-Smith, Head of Leasing at Land Securities, said:

“We are delighted to welcome Ophir Energy to 123 Victoria Street. Their decision to move from Mayfair and choose Victoria as their new home reflects the area’s ever-increasing reputation as a vibrant destination for forward-thinking companies.”

Bluebook advised Ophir Energy.

The dismantling of scaffolding from the eastern tower of 123 Victoria Street at the start of the year has revealed a wonderful preview of the finished building. Over 90 per cent of the new glass is in place
and the granite has been repaired and cleaned. “You can now see what the building is going to look like,” says Ian Elson, Project Manager for Land Securities. “It’s a fantastic transformation, it really livens up the building.” The removal of scaffolding also signals that the refurbishment project has moved into its final phase. “We’ve completed all the key structural alterations inside,” continues Ian. “We’re now working top-down on finishing areas off, including floors and ceilings. We’re also starting to form the physical spaces of the new reception areas.”

Commissioning of mechanical and electrical equipment is underway, and the building cleaning systems are being installed on the roofs. As the scaffold drops, finishes on the 34 roof spaces are also being finalised. Over half the retail units now have their new frontages in place, with the remainder being completed by June. “I think it’s very smart along there,” says Ian. With samples of the colonnade’s new wave-form roof now signed off, installation works are about to start. This will be done overnight to avoid disruption to pedestrians.
