Regent Street receives over 7.5 million tourist visits a year and there are over 10,000 people employed there. Its Grade II listed facades are considered some of the most distinguished architecture in London.
Perhaps best known as a shopping destination, Regent Street now rivals the Champs-Elysées and Fifth Avenue. With over 2km of store frontage, it is home to one of the finest collections of international brands in the world, including Apple, Burberry, Banana Republic, Jaeger, Desigual, and Anthropologie.
But Regent Street is much more than just retailing, it is a prestigious business address too. It offers space for small offices and growing businesses as well as large, modern office space for international companies such as Lloyds TSB and Matrix Group.
We know that world class businesses deserve a world class environment. And that is why we are clear that the ‘bits between the buildings’ are as important as the buildings themselves. We have provided new pedestrianised food quarters for workers and shoppers to eat, drink and relax in. We have also invested in transformational schemes at Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus, the gateways to Regent Street.
The Crown Estate manages Regent Street on behalf of the Regent Street Partnership, which also includes The Crown Estate’s joint venture partner, Norges Bank Investment Management. The Regent Street Partnership remains committed to a 20 year £1 billion investment programme that has been credited with transforming the street into an award-winning international destination. Now halfway through this programme, our progress so far has delivered ten redevelopments and major refurbishments, comprising over 2 million square feet.
