Oxford North tops out and unveils new park name

Oxford North, the new innovation district in Oxford, has reached its highest point in construction and topped out its first phase with the Red Hall’s new cantilever roof lowered into place, and two new lab buildings’ steel frames completed.

 

Oxford North is the new £700 million innovation district in Oxford and will deliver one million sq ft (92,903 sq m) of laboratories and workspaces for science and technology companies, 480 new homes, and amenities which will include a market square, hotel, nursery, cafe, bar and three public parks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

As a low-carbon district, the buildings will be all-electric and energy-efficient, powered by renewable sources and on-site photovoltaics, and will target BREEAM Excellent. The project has a resolute focus to ensure that Oxford North has a far-reaching positive impact on the local economy through the delivery of its Community Employment Plan.

 

 

The new park has been named after Professor Elizabeth Fallaize who was a British academic, a leading scholar in French Studies and was pro-vice chancellor (education) of the University of Oxford.

Oxford North’s Phase 1a is targeting practical completion in Q2 2025.
