Regent Street overview

We hold almost the entire freehold to Regent Street and since 2002 have been implementing a £1 billion Regent Street investment programme.

With a street frontage of two kilometres and over 10,000 people employed there, Regent Street also receives more than 7.5 million tourist visits a year. The Grade II listed façades also represent some of the most distinguished architecture in London.

Through the Regent Street Vision investment programme, guided by the values of quality, heritage, style and success, we have restored almost the full length of the street, creating a world-class destination. It has created exemplary commercial, retail and visitor facilities within a significantly improved public realm and the results can be seen on the street today.

This year we opened an amazing flagship store on Regent Street, London, in what is seen as the world's No.1 shopping destination and the place to be as a forward thinking international retailer. ”

Its 1.5 million ft2 of flagship retail space is home to one of the finest collections of international brands in the world, including Lululemon, Polo Ralph Lauren, Tory Burch, SpaceNK, and Michael Kors.

Regent Street is also one of London's leading business locations; by value, around half of Regent Street's worth is in its office space. It offers one million ft2 of space, comprising both small offices for growing businesses, and large, modern office floor space for international companies such as BBH, Lloyds TSB and Telefónica.

We know that world class businesses deserve a world class environment. And that's why we are clear that the 'bits between the buildings' are as important as the buildings themselves. So we have invested over £25 million in public realm improvements. We have created two pedestrianised food quarters for workers and shoppers to eat drink and relax in. In addition, we have transformed, with partners, Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus, the gateways to Regent Street.

We manage Regent Street on behalf of ourselves and our partner, Norges Bank Real Estate Management (NBREM), after establishing the Regent Street Partnership in 2011, which saw NBREM acquire a 25 per cent leasehold interest in the Street.

The Regent Street Partnership remains committed to the ongoing Regent Street Vision investment programme that has already been credited with transforming the Street. Now halfway through this programme, we have delivered ten redevelopments and major refurbishments, comprising 2 million ft2 (186,000 m2).
