GPE completes comprehensive refurbishment of 160 Old Street

Great Portland Estates (GPE) has completed the comprehensive refurbishment of 160 Old Street, marking this development milestone with a grand tour of the mixed-use space.

Delva Patman Redler advised GPE on the Daylight, Sunlight and Rights of Light for the 160,600 sq ft (14,920 sq m) Central London redevelopment, as well as the Party Wall and Neighbourly Matters.

The Delva Patman Redler team is delighted to have played a part in the refurbishment, providing a range of our specialist services to contribute to its transformation.”
