Description of Park House

Park House is a mixed use building in Mayfair, London W1.

Mayfair and Oxford Street has always been one of London's stranger juxtapositions. The former is a place of discreet Georgian elegance, full of designer boutiques and exclusive residences. The latter is Europe's busiest high street, teeming with millions of shoppers on a mission. Park House is a mixed-use building set to transform the relationship between the two.

There are eight floors of office space with only six internal columns, creating City-standard spaces, including two spectacular upper floors beneath the double-height curved glass roof. It's set to be the most sought-after commercial address in London. But office space is just one element in the mix. Eleven retail units feature shop fronts twice the average height for the area, perfect for drawing in the estimated 200 million people who visit Oxford Street every year.

The residential apartments have their own entrance on North Row. Apartments are for rent at www.parkhouseapartmentsmayfair.co.uk.

The dramatic curves of the glass exterior have been compared to a sleek racing car, elegantly maximising the available space without overpowering the surrounding area. The building also showcases an entirely new approach to commissioned art, by incorporating it within the fabric of the building itself. Visitors are greeted by a glass prism of liquid light created by Carpenter Lowings, while artist Walter Bailey has created extraordinary works in wood to adorn the exterior and reception.

Net Internal Areas:
Office: 15,140 sq m (163,010 sq ft)
Retail: 8,140 sq m (87,660 sq ft)
Residential: 5,430 sq m (58,500 sq ft)

Developer Land Securities sold Park House 34% profit on cost in 2012.

I love the shape and architectural view of this nice new building. I wonder if it was paid by Arab country as I heard from one worker at the site.

GVA's West End Office Agency team have been instructed as letting agents for Park House, joining current agents CBRE and Knight Frank. The building in Mayfair has 140,000 sq ft of vacant offices.

GVA will bring specialist West End experience and exposure to the Wealth Management sector to this project to secure new lettings. In addition, the client has embarked on a new letting campaign to reposition the building in the market, which includes the introduction of split floors and a lower rent from £85 per sq ft.

Patrick Morrissey helped to secure the instruction through his relationship with REM, who also asset manage The Shard.

Patrick O’Keeffe, Senior Director and Head of Central London Agency and Investment, commented: “We’re delighted to be appointed on Park House. As London’s leading Mayfair specialist in office agency we know this scheme and its surrounds very well indeed. With our unrivalled occupier contacts and expertise, we have identified a series of benefits this scheme offers to attract core market investors. Its market resilience will future proof interested businesses; offers from £85 per sq ft will present huge value; its flexible floorplates will attract a wider audience; and its location at the heart of London’s Wealth Management district is a significant pull to core occupiers.”

Mace has reached practical completion on Park House, the new landmark project worth £135m on London’s Oxford Street – the biggest development on the famous street for 40 years.

A design and build project, the Park House team has surpassed itself in the delivery of what will become one of Oxford Street’s most outstanding developments. The nine-story mixed-use Land Securities development covers an entire city block of just over an acre in Mayfair, facing onto Oxford Street, covering 56,000 square metres.

Mace was first appointed to the Land Securities development in 2010 as the construction manager and secured the job for a second time when it was put out to competitive tender under a fixed price, single stage design and build contract.

Park House was developed as three programmes, retail, commercial and residential. It provides 15,000 square metres of office space, with some of the largest interior office spaces in London’s west end, as well as 8,300 square metres of much-needed retail space and 39 stunning apartments, some with external terraces. In all it provides 15,000 square metres of office space, with some of the largest interior office spaces in London’s west end, as well as 8,300 square metres of much-needed retail space on Oxford Street.

The external design features a striking fully glazed facade on all sides incorporating specially commissioned art, with a curved, partially metal and partially glazed roof.

Careful planning and programme management has been used to deliver this challenging project successfully. Despite the site having already been cleared by earlier demolition works, Park House was delivered on one of Europe’s busiest shopping streets and with London Underground’s Central Line running only a few metres below the development.

Project Director, Shaun Tate said: ‘The team is proud to have completed such a complex and significant project to such a high standard. The team overcame a wealth of challenges, negotiating the activity on Oxford Street, the close proximity to London Underground and also the technical challenges of the unique design. We hope Park House will become one of Oxford Street’s most stand-out landmark developments.”

The project is also the main feature in this month’s Construction Manager, which you can read here. The Park House team reached practical completion on time and budget on November 23 and shared stunning photography of the completion with the magazine of the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).
