Indicative CGI of the new building from Botley Road

The vision

Reflecting the ambitions of the city

Oxford is a world-renowned city and our ambition is for this development to work both at the community level and the international level. We want to re-think and re-purpose this brownfield site into an asset for Oxford.

Our proposals would bring outstanding and uplifting architecture to this part of the Botley Road as well as substantial new landscaping and greening across the site.

The development would form a key part of exciting proposals for this wider area of the city. The materials and site layout will be inviting, drawing people into the site and activating this area of the city, including via the new publicly accessible café.

It will be a high-quality design and up to best-in-class performance standards. Architects NBBJ are already working in the city (on the Life and Mind Building for the University of Oxford) and will bring distinctive design and best in class aesthetic for this new R&D building.

The plans preserve space and light for site neighbours, while mixing landscape and design excellence to improve the vista for all. It responds positively to adjoining neighbours and the surrounding context.

Our proposals are informed by national and local planning policies which include the Local Plan, the Local Industrial Strategy, the Oxford Economic Strategy, and the City Council’s wider assessment of how to achieve good growth in the West End and in the Botley Road corridor.
