Plans approved for Oxford Science Park expansion
Oxford City Council has approved plans for three new buildings on The Oxford Science Park (TOSP), totalling over 37,100m2.
Designed by architects Scott Brownrigg, each building will provide headquarters – office and laboratory facilities – for leading science and technology companies.
TOSP is majority owned by Magdalen College, Oxford, and is at the heart of its strategy to support discovery, innovation and entrepreneurship.
According to Scott Brownrigg, the strong performance of the office and laboratory markets over the last six months highlights the potential of science and technology for the UK economy.
The new buildings on TOSP are part of long-term, ambitious development plans to help meet this demand through the creation of exemplary additional office and laboratory space over the next three years. This additional capacity will support the growth of existing occupiers, providing flexibility with their space requirements, and enable new companies to join the Park’s unique community.
The scheme is due to start onsite in the summer, with the first stage due for completion in 2024.
