Galliard Homes has completed the purchase of TCRW SOHO from the TfL, a £140 million (GDV) residential-led development on Oxford Street.

The developer will now start the £55 million two year construction project to deliver 92 apartments (74,675 sq ft of residential accommodation) and 9,939 sqft of ground-floor retail space, situated above the new western entrance to the Elizabeth line of the Tottenham Court Road station.

Savills acted for TfL and helped to negotiate the purchase agreement with Galliard Homes. Galliard Construction is the principal contractor for TCRW Soho with Ramboll working as Consulting Engineers.

Designed by architectural practice Hawkins\Brown with specification and interior design by Argent Design, TCRW Soho is scheduled for completion in Summer 2023. It will comprise two new buildings, one Art Deco in style providing 69 apartments and a 7,989 sqft Oxford Street retail unit, and the other Georgian-inspired in style, providing 23 apartments and 1,950 sqft of new retail accommodation and kiosks.

TCRW Soho is over 50% forward-sold off-plan, with over £75 million worth of sales, reflecting the high quality of the Galliard Homes scheme and the ongoing demand for homes in Central London.

Prices currently start at £999,999. Studios, 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments are available for sale.

Don O’ Sullivan, Chief Executive of Galliard Homes commented: “As the leading independent builder of new homes for Londoners Galliard Homes is delighted to be working with Transport for London. TCRW Soho is an example of a best practice residential-led regeneration project located above this 21st Century, new entrance to a key central London transport interchange giving the homeowners' doorstep access to the West End and Soho.”

With the Elizabeth line expected to open in the first half of 2022, the new interchange at Tottenham Court Road will be one of London’s busiest stations. The ticket hall and underground station will be accessed via Dean Street, and the interchange will offer access to the Elizabeth line and the Northern and Central underground lines.

The Elizabeth line will have the capacity for up to 24 trains per hour in the central section, serving up to 200 million passengers each year, with Tottenham Court Road providing high-frequency journeys to Heathrow Airport (28 minutes), Canary Wharf (12 minutes), Bond Street (2 minutes), City of London/Liverpool Street (5 minutes) and Stratford (14 minutes).
