Madison International Realty (“Madison”), a leading real estate private equity firm, has invested in the development of 105 Victoria Street, in Victoria, London, alongside WELPUT, the specialist central London office fund managed by BentallGreenOak (“BGO“).
The 500,000 sq ft building, which is due to be completed in 2026, will comprise 13 storeys of high quality office space, including co-working and affordable workspace, as well as additional floors with amenities for occupiers and the wider community. The building’s ground floor flexible activity zone will host sports activities, presentations, art exhibitions, music performances and children’s events. A 100 metre ‘walk and talk’ track will encourage physical activity while the 35,000 sq ft of incorporated green space, including an urban farm to provide fresh food and a means of local composting, is intended to be the largest amount of such space in any commercial building in the West End.
105 Victoria Street is designed to be the UK’s largest net zero office development and will pursue net zero embodied carbon using innovations in ultra-low carbon construction, including recycling 99% of the existing building, to minimise the carbon intensity of the development with the goal of all carbon emitted being offset in the future.
The scheme is designed to be the largest all-electric office in the UK and the development’s energy is intended to be supplied from fully renewable sources, with no gas supply and no diesel generator onsite, ensuring zero fossil fuels during construction and once the asset is operational. As a result, the building is designed to meet EPC A and WELL ‘Platinum’ certification, as well as exceeding RIBA 2030 sustainability targets. The scheme is also targeting a combined BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ and 5.5-star NABERS rating, the world-leading environmental performance rating tool which rates the operational energy use of offices.
