BuckleyGrayYeoman has completed the redevelopment of 55 Wells Street in Fitzrovia on behalf of Great Portland Estates plc. The project has increased the total space available on the site from 36,000 sq ft (GIA) to 50,000 sq ft (GIA) and delivers modern office space built to the highest standard of design and materials.

55 Wells Street is a key project in the revival of Fitzrovia as a high quality West End office location, in-line with the aspirations of Westminster City Council. The development replaces a dilapidated 1960s office building with a new six-storey building providing Grade A office accommodation above the ground floor retail and restaurant space.

Andrew Henriques, Associate Director at BuckleyGrayYeoman, said:
“Fitzrovia has been one of the chief beneficiaries of Crossrail, which has transformed the area’s once underperforming office market, increasing demand and raising value across the district. 55 Wells Street is a great example of the high-quality, mature development that landowners with a long-term interest in the quality of the area, such as Great Portland Estates, are achieving as they renew Fitzrovia and make it attractive to modern office tenants.”

55 Well Street has been designed to suit the changing face of Fitzrovia and the high quality of the development has already secured Ottolenghi restaurants, which will open its Fitzrovia outlet in the ground floor retail unit. With the development completing in November 2017, it is testimony to the quality of the finished scheme that all accommodation is either already let or in solicitors hands.

BuckleyGrayYeoman’s design incorporates a mixture of high-quality stone and masonry to create an elegant, well-proportioned façade that enhances the Wells Street landscape. The office entrance is clearly identifiable from the street, with a prominent, double-height reception and full height glazing. To one side of the entrance, is a geometric frieze artwork by London-based sculptor Lee Simmons further enhances how the building presents.
