We are excited to announce that we have partnered with leading global investment firm KKR on the acquisition of the legendary Heal’s building on Tottenham Court Road.
With its rich heritage and iconic status, our focus will be on preserving and restoring this landmark building, while breathing a new life into estate.
The site has been the flagship store of the legendary designer furniture retailer for over 200 years, although the building that now stands at 196 Tottenham Court Road wasn’t built until 1916. Master designer Cecil Brewer was tasked with redesigning the location to mark a new, modern era for the store – which has remained at the forefront of design. An ever-evolving building, it became an icon for its unique features and an architecture that was always reflective of changing tastes and trends through generations.
This landmark estate encompasses 187,000 sq ft of multi-purpose space across nine separate buildings. We will be carrying out a sensitive reinvention of the site to continue Heal’s legacy whilst revolutionising the building into a hub for other creative, media and technology businesses to cluster.
