Great Portland Estates is now exploring whether a more substantial redevelopment, including improving the quality and scale of the retail space, would add additional value given the strong demand for high-quality retail units at the eastern end of Oxford Street due to the opening of Crossrail in 2018.

GPE achieved planning approval in June 2016 for an 89,100 sq ft major mixed-use refurbishment at Oxford house. As part of the letting to Facebook at Rathbone Square, Facebook had a right of first offer to take all of the 55,700 sq ft of office space which they chose not to exercise.

Facebook has chosen not to exercise their right of first offer to occupy the 55,700 sq ft of office space at Oxford House, reports Great Portland Estate.

Dependent on market conditions, GPE expects to be able to commence construction during autumn 2017 although the development team continue to look for opportunities to improve the design of the currently consented scheme.
