Hines European Value Fund purchase 354-358 Oxford Street

Bruce Gillingham Pollard provided occupational advice in the purchase of 354-358 Oxford Street on behalf of Hines European Value Fund. 

Alongside Chris Strong at Fineman Ross, Bruce Gillingham Pollard’s market-leading leasing team were able to use their wealth of knowledge and experience to provide a detailed underwrite on a development located in one of the most sought-after and prime locations in the West End.

The building has recently been redeveloped and is strategically located adjacent the new Crossrail entrance on the northern side of Oxford Street to Bond Street station. The retail scheme comprises in excess of 5,000 sq ft - this could either be let in its entirety or with the ability to create 3 new shops along Oxford Street. The upper floors include 11 residential apartments, designed by architects at Fletcher Priest. Bruce Gillingham Pollard and joint agents Colliers International will be marketing the commercial space with immediate effect, to open in line with the arrival of the new Crossrail Station on Bond Street.

Charlotte Brunt, Director at Bruce Gillingham Pollard said: “354 Oxford Street is a hugely exciting project, it’s perfectly positioned near the new Bond Street tube and it will also benefit from the arrival of the Elizabeth Line, improving connectivity and access to the immediate area. The building benefits from over 25 metres of Oxford Street frontage and all these key aspects will come together in helping to secure an opinion forming retail tenant mix for this scheme”.

The mindful drinking movement

One of Bruce Gillingham Pollard’s predicted trends for 2018 was the rise of ‘mindful drinking’ and after a month of indulgence, ‘Dry January’ is likely to boost further growth on the sale of non-alcoholic beverages.

Dry January aside, in the current social climate of greater health awareness, there is a growing push against the British drinking culture that places alcohol at the centre of every social event.

The proportion of Brits regularly drinking is at its lowest (56.9%) since 2005. The mindful drinking movement has been largely driven by millennials, with the choice motivated by economic difficulties, professional motivation and health factors. “A decade ago, 19% of young adults aged 16-24 reported choosing not to drink alcohol, compared with 27% in 2015”,  according to the Office for National Statistics. Many drinks have been launched to appeal to sober millennials. These include Seedlip, a “gin”, with zero calories and 0% alcohol, and 0.5% alcohol beers such as Nanny State by Brewdog, which has driven a 50% increase in low or no-alcohol beer sales in the past five years.

As a result, companies who are able to offer alternatives to drinking alcohol will thrive, with the front runners being those that embrace the innovation in non-alcoholic spirits, and the growing trend in competitive socialising.
