The building process is complex and comes with common—and not-so-common—challenges. Learn more about what we do as Project Managers in our bi-monthly video series, MGAC on the Move. For each episode, a different member of our team gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at one of their current projects. Now let’s get moving!

Discover the remarkable transformation of the iconic 1930s art deco gem, 318 Oxford Street, as MGAC’s Andrew Agbo gives us a behind the scenes tour. Formerly the House of Fraser department store, this 250,000 SF building is evolving into a vibrant mixed-use development featuring retail spaces, offices, a rooftop restaurant with panoramic views, an external terrace, and a cutting-edge gym. As the project progresses over the next 24 months, expect a grand entrance through a double-height reception hall, with ongoing demolition and construction efforts shaping the future. The lower levels will house a new gym with a 25-meter swimming pool, showcasing the commitment to wellness. Structural enhancements, such as reinforced concrete for the foundation and additional steelwork, are underway, preparing the space for a new raised access floor and improved ventilation systems. The upcoming eight-floor extension promises an elegant addition to the skyline, balancing modernity with a nod to its historic roots.
