High Street giant to refurbish Oxford Street offices

October 9, 2013 in Office Partitioning

Arcadia, the retail parent company of Topshop, Burton and Miss Selfridge, is to redevelop its central London offices. An ambitious plan to completely overhaul its headquarters over a shopping mall in Oxford Street, the projected cost of the project is £32 million.

The project will see the offices located at Colegrave House given a makeover. The group says that there will be a substantial reconfiguration of the present space to bring it up to modern standards.

With break areas and clever use of office partitions, all four storeys of the current site will be refurbished.

Sitting above The Plaza shopping mall – which itself sits atop Bond Street tube station – the plans include the development of a new flagship store.

There will also be a new reception, as well as a new gym. All of the offices will be enlarged to maximise the space available. Presently occupying 125,000 square feet, the available area will be increased to 155,000 square feet.

A spiral staircase will link all the floors, which will sit in one of two full-height and glazed atria.

The plans will also see curtain walling installed, an improved circulation space and enhancements to current sight lines.

Talking about the plans, Arcadia director Philip Green said:

All of us here at Arcadia Head Office are excited by the prospect of this innovative and dynamic HQ. [We all] look forward to creating a truly 21st century working environment.

A multi-phase programme will be put into action, which will allow the offices to remain operational throughout the fit out.
