Dominvs Group has decided to sell the landmark Viaduct site in Holborn due to the number of unofficial approaches the group has received from interested purchasers over the summer.

The move is in line with the group’s future focus and core strategic diversification, to seek real estate opportunities beyond its London heartland in private residential, student, build-to-rent and joint venture opportunities around the UK.

65 Holborn Viaduct is in the heart of Midtown equidistant from The City of London and the West End and on the border of Farringdon, one of the best performing submarkets in central London.

The 0.53-acre site sits prominently on the north side of Holborn Viaduct and has existing planning consent for a 207,754 sq ft mixed-use scheme, anchored by a 382-key hotel, with 32,464 sq ft (NIA) of workspace and both a ‘Skybar’ and a public rooftop viewing gallery with stunning views across central London. Alternatively, the site has outstanding potential for an headquarter office scheme, comprising over 181,000 sq ft across lower ground, ground and nine upper floors.

The site is adjacent to Smithfield market, part of which is soon to become a major cultural attraction with the development of the new £330 million Museum of London.

The surrounding neighbourhood includes leading occupiers, with Amazon at Sixty London and Goldman Sachs’ new 840,000 sq ft European headquarters at Plumtree Court directly to the south-west and Farringdon Station – where the London Underground, Thameslink and Crossrail will combine services in 2022 – is five minutes’ walk away.

Jay Ahluwalia, Director at Dominvs Group, commented: “This landmark 0.53-acre site at 61-65 Holborn Viaduct is adjacent to the Amazon HQ and the Museum of London and is perfect for a headquarters building or landmark hotel. Sites in the City of London region of this quality are rarely brought to market and Dominvs Group has received interest in the site from various parties prior to it being officially offered for sale.”
