adidas global flagship store at 425 Oxford StreetMORE
425 Oxford Street
The joint venture owning the property, Grosvenor Britain & Ireland (Grosvenor) and Stow Capital Partners (Stow), has agreed to pre-let 45,000 sq ft of retail space to adidas. The project involves the reconfiguration and extension of the lower five floors of this ten storey building to create a self-contained five storey retail unit with a main entrance on Oxford Street.
This will create a larger unit for adidas, which aims to create a new global flagship store in the prime retail location, opposite Selfridges Department store in the heart of London’s West End.
The work is planned to be undertaken in a series of phases over a circa two year period. The preliminary phase of activity started on site at the end of August 2016 and has included the strip out of the floors and the removal of asbestos in the ground and basement floors. Handover of the bespoke scheme to adidas, to include stairwells and lift cores, is targeted for Spring 2019.

Landmark building that makes a powerful statementMORE
33 Davies Street
33 Davies Street is a distinctive landmark building of 36,000 sq ft of highly specified Grade A offices with one of London’s most prestigious addresses, opposite Claridge’s Hotel. It has been acquired in 2003 and comprised 3 separate buildings, 29-35 Davies Street behind a unified neo-Georgian façade.
The development set a new standard in West End office design and service preparing for the dynamic change that Crossrail will bring to Mayfair in 2018.
The design by HOK architects combines distinctive contemporary architecture with traditional brick and Portland stone faade materials. The Grade-A air conditioned offices were built to the highest specification, spanning five floors, flexibly designed for multi-letting. An imposing entry space includes double height ceilings and three 3.6m bronze portcullis gates, designed by artist Wendy Ramshaw.
Multi-let 1970’s building acquired near Terminal 5MORE
5-6 Horton Road
Given its proximity to Terminal 5, 5-6 Horton Road (previously known as Isis House) was acquired in 2006 to take opportunity of the influx of business deriving from the new terminal at Heathrow airport, in particular users or support services for the airport. It consists of two floors used as offices.
