New joint venture to drive development of Oxford North

Following on from the recent establishment of a new board, Thomas White Oxford, the development company of St John’s College Oxford, has agreed a 50:50 joint venture partnership with Canadian-based Cadillac Fairview, the real estate arm of Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, with developer Stanhope PLC, to deliver Oxford North, the new £700 million innovation district in the City of Oxford.

A new company, Oxford North Ventures LLP, has been formed as a JV, 50% owned by Thomas White Oxford and 50% by Canadian-based Cadillac Fairview and developer Stanhope. Stanhope has also been appointed as development manager.

The joint venture will invest almost £700 million to deliver 939,000 sq ft (87,300 sq m) of laboratory and workspace to enable life-enhancing discovery, along with amenities, infrastructure and social value during the next several years.

In March 2021, outline consent was granted by Oxford City Council for the overall 64-acre masterplan and detailed consent for the first phase of new laboratories and workspace, which will total 170,000 sq ft (15,793 sq m), with a link road and Central Park.  Enabling infrastructure works started in August 2021. Future labs and workspace phases across Central and Eastside will be delivered by the joint venture.
