Nova, Victoria, SW1
In February 2012, Land Securities formed a 50:50 joint venture with Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (“CPPIB”) to own and develop Nova, Victoria.
Nova, Victoria is an architecturally daring urban campus that delivers a new and vibrant destination for London. More than just a development, the comprehensive transformation of this 5.5 acre island site is the defining moment in Land Securities £2.2 billion re-invention of Victoria, which is already home to businesses such as Channel 4, the Telegraph Media Group and high-fashion names such as Jimmy Choo, Tom Ford and Burberry.
Nova, Victoria is a game changing 897,000 sq ft mixed use scheme delivering world class Grade A office space, contemporary high quality apartments, high profile retail, and will provide numerous eateries and restaurants, making it Londons next up and coming Food Quarter.
The development will comprise five buildings within a new, 82,700 sq ft pedestrianised, landscaped public space, opposite Victoria mainline railway station at the heart of London's prestigious West End.
Nova will be an inspiring place where leading businesses and their employees will want to be based; a bustling restaurant quarter where both locals and tourists will meet, shop, enjoy a meal or drinks after work; a distinctive cultural space where ever changing art works will be discovered and enjoyed by the public. It represents arguably the capital's most exciting master-planned mixed use scheme in decades and will lead to a vast increase in public space in Victoria with two newly created pedestrian routes linking Buckingham Palace and the Royal Parks to the capital's busiest transport hub.
Construction of Nova, Victoria started in June 2013. The first phase, comprises of 480,300 sq ft offices, 79,900 sq ft of retail and 170 luxury modern apartments within three landmark buildings.
