August 2011 - One of the Largest Ever Office Lettings in Oxfordshire


Acting on behalf of Goodman, contracts have just been exchanged with Centrica plc to develop an 81,000 sq ft head office at Oxford Business Park, for its British Gas Business division. British Gas Business has made a long term commitment to Oxford Business Park, taking a 17 year lease on its new development which will house approximately 1,000 British Gas employees, including all employees currently working at the company's existing premises at Oxford Business Park. The building should be ready in late 2012. This latest deal follows a number of lettings at Oxford Business Park to Grant Thornton, HSS Tool Hire, Zinc Ahead and Oxfordshire County Council, further strengthening its position as Oxford's premier business location. VSL and Partners are letting agents on Oxford Business Park jointly with Strutt and Parker.

Oxford Business Park provides a workplace for more than 40 companies employing over 4,500 people. The park comprises 88 acres, offering high quality office space and on-site amenities including a hotel, restaurant, day nursery and health and fitness centre. More details can be seen at
