The 80,000 sq ft office development, which completed in March 2016, was developed by Exemplar as part of The Crown Estate’s on-going £1bn investment in its Regent Street portfolio.  

Built behind a Grade II listed Regent Street frontage and with Savile Row to the rear, the One New Burlington Place development has regenerated a historic block to meet the needs of modern occupiers.

  • High thermal performance facade
  • A smart rainwater harvesting system
  • Solar cells across the building to generate electricity
  • Ground source heating/cooling.
