New Oxford House office refurbishment enters final phase

Office refurbishment continues as KWB starts work on the final phase of transformation at New Oxford House in Birmingham city centre.

Acting on behalf of the Duchy of Lancaster, KWB Property Management is managing a major office refurbishment of the public areas of New Oxford House in Waterloo Street, following the opening of the Pieminister restaurant on the ground floor in May 2017. It is one of many office refurbishment projects that KWB has managed in Birmingham over the past twelve months.

Judith Williams, a senior member of KWB’s Property Management team, who manages New Oxford House on behalf of the Duchy of Lancaster, has overseen the building’s office refurbishment and transformation from an office building to mixed use. With restaurants now on the ground floor and basement, New Oxford House is now a prime location in Birmingham’s new restaurant district.

KWB’s Office Agency team advised on the letting of the 2,048 sq ft of ground floor and basement space to Pieminister, and the previous letting of the adjacent 6,100 sq ft of ground, lower ground and basement space to Michelin starred Adam’s Restaurant. 

Judith says “From the time Société Générale surrendered its lease on the ground floor of New Oxford House, we have worked hard on behalf of our client, the Duchy of Lancaster, to help create an area for up-market luxury dining in Birmingham’s business and financial district. This has come to fruition with the leases to Adams, most recently voted third best restaurant in the UK and ninth best in the world, and to award-winning pie company Pieminister.

“The culmination of this work will be the comprehensive office refurbishment of the public areas of New Oxford House which will help improve the quality of the office space and make it more attractive to potential occupiers.

“Waterloo Street and Temple Street will continue to benefit from the growing demand for luxury eateries – of all shapes and sizes – to meet a wide variety of budgets and tastes.”
