Lower James Street

This development is located on a prime Soho site just off Golden Square, in a dense and lively neighbourhood of narrow streets and alleys. An existing office building has been refurbished by a leading institutional investment management company, improving its street presence and adding a new reception space and restaurant unit on the lower floors. Above, a new office level has been added, constructed from prefabricated CLT (cross-laminated timber) and creating a double-height workspace with a new mezzanine floor and generous rooflights. Several of the building’s existing features have been retained.

Opera provided project management services for the project, working in close collaboration with the designers, Hale Brown Architects, and clients Knight Frank Investment Management.

 

“We have been working with Dan on delivering a challenging central London site, with numerous constraints. Dan has played a leading role in enabling us to outline the optimum scheme for the site and to make the case for redevelopment. We always find Dan’s advice to be both commercial and pragmatic and his approach characterised by strong leadership.”
