No. 1 New Oxford Street Launch

7th November 2017

We were delighted to launch No. 1 New Oxford Street on behalf of our clients TH Real Estate and BA Pensions.

COS women’s retailer pre-let 65,000 sq ft earlier this year, leaving a further 35,000 sq ft available over the 1st-3rd floors (one of which is already under offer).

The culmination of a 2 year refurbishment programme by Orms that has embraced the building’s Art  Moderne heritage whilst introducing major structural changes that include  a new feature stepped atrium, additional and rebuilt upper floors, and roof terracing. The innovative under floor cooling system we believe will be a new reference point for the West End.

Get in touch if you’d like a tour.

Vinyl Frontier – No. 3

5th June 2014

I doubt many agents can lay claim to gracing the stage at legendary Camden venue Dingwalls, Brian Allen from Savills is a man who can.

Echo and The Bunnymen – Crocodiles (1980, Korova)

“Wouldn’t say it was the best in my collection, was not even the Bunnymen’s best album but looking at when the record was released saw I would have been 16. Took me back to a world which seemed to revolve around listening to John Peel, NME on a Thursday and record shops on a Saturday morning. If that all sounds a bit weird, it was what everyone I knew did at the time”

“I remember studying the album artwork in detail –got a long coat from a jumble sale just like the one Ian McCulloch wore, used Boots Styling Gel to get my hair like his, something I could never do at that age was grow some stubble….still struggle now!”

Brian has just passed his grade 5 guitar exam and achieved a merit no less – congratulations

Vinyl Frontier – No. 2

28th April 2014

Former soul boy, rare groove aficionado and Essex clubland pioneer, Nigel Harrison from Harrison Leggett popped in with a cracking selection this week.

Lonnie Liston Smith and The Cosmic Echoes – Expansions (1975, Flying Dutchman)

“I picked this beauty up in a secondhand vinyl emporium somewhere in 1986, but I had been strutting my jazz funk disco shoes to the title track ‘Expansions’ since the late 70s. The essential listening back then was the Robbie Vincent show every Saturday on Radio London for those ‘rare grooves’.

“Expansions builds from one of the most memorable opening bass lines in jazz fusion moving to  a symphony of ARP String synthesiser, a haunting vocal from Donald brother of Lonnie , and in the mid section a storming electric piano solo from Lonnie! I advise anyone who likes funky tunes if they see a copy of this anywhere, either on Vinyl or CD or the 12 ” single, buy it immediately.”
