Plans for Red Hall have been given the green light with building work set to start in the summer.
Oxford City Council has given the green light for an application to expand the scope of the Red Hall which will be at the centre of Oxford North, the new innovation district for the city.
We’re working on this expansion alongside Fletcher Priest Architects for our client Oxford North Ventures, the JV partnership between Thomas White Oxford, Cadillac Fairview and Stanhope PLC, which will provide greater amenity, meeting, co-working and workspace for science and tech start-up and SMEs.
The enhanced Red Hall has retained the form, external materials and detailing of the previously consented building.
It will now provide an additional 21,539 sq ft within a three floor ‘wing’ to the north-east of the building to connect it to a new market square and central park. The building will now be over five floors and total 61,462 sq ft (5,710 sq m). The Red Hall will also target BREEAM Excellent certification.
David Camp, chief executive officer, Stanhope plc, said: “This approval from Oxford City Council means that we can start construction of the first phase of new low carbon lab, workspaces and amenity and continue to create construction jobs and vital new science and innovation space for Oxford.”
Construction works are due to start in the Summer 2023.
