About Oxford North

Oxford North is a new innovation district purposefully designed to enable the next century of life-changing discoveries in science and technology

With major advances converging like never before, we need spaces that help convert opportunity into reality. We’re introducing a million sq ft of new labs and workspace, surrounded by public parks and amenities, just a 15 minute cycle ride from the city centre. Oxford North will be a meeting point and launchpad for ambitious thinkers.

Oxford: world-leading crucible of ideas, research, invention and investment

There’s nowhere in the world quite like Oxford for scientific and technological discovery. From the invention of penicillin to the first COVID-19 vaccine, the city is an iconic enclave for life-changing ‘firsts’.


480 new homes will make Oxford North a great place to live and work

Our first 317 homes are being built in the Canalside Quarter, with easy access to Oxford North's amenities, Fallaize Park, facilities and workspaces, and a short cycle ride from the city centre and Summertown.
