VSL and Partners is now CBRE Oxford


CBRE has acquired VSL Partners, a leading commercial property consultancy in the Oxford Cambridge Arc (OxCam).

VSL Partners and CBRE have joined forces to provide a comprehensive range of commercial real estate services to landlords and occupiers in the OxCam Arc. The merger aims to support clients with expertise spanning office, and industrial & logistics property types, with a specialised focus on meeting the needs of occupiers in the life sciences and technology sector.

The Oxford Cambridge Knowledge Corridor

The OxCam region is of strategic importance to the UK economy. Boasting two of the world's leading universities, the area has become a hub for innovation with a high concentration of science and technology companies setting up operations to help compete for high-quality talent and investment.

Commercial property is undergoing a period of sustained investment in the region generating from the huge potential the area is now delivering from the wealth of science and technology innovation it holds. As a result, the market is seeing increased demand from tech and life sciences occupiers, as well as significant real estate development prospects.

Realising the potential in the OxCam Arc

VSL Partners was formed in 2002 to provide clients and partners with local and regional commercial property valuation advice. The company now has the largest dedicated commercial property agency team in Oxfordshire, with other professional commercial and retail property services including:

Professional commercial property services

  • Agency
  • Property lease consultancy
  • Valuation
  • Rating
  • Development and building consultancy (including office, industrial and life science)
  • Consultancy
  • Technology company advisory

Through acquiring the established commercial property consultancy business, CBRE is able to continue growing its business and capabilities and support all our clients further with their business operations in the region.

CBRE's New Oxford Office

Since the acquisition, the team has more than doubled in size with a range of new hires. This has resulted in the need to search for new state-of-the-art premises to base their operations.

The newly completed two-storey eco-office, known as The Dutch Barn, is located on a small business park in Botley in the Oxfordshire area. Eight specialist CBRE property teams worked together on the design and rebuild to create a collaborative space with an office of up to 48 personnel, with break-out zones, meeting and presentation areas, and facilities such as an outdoor terrace.
