Oxford Nanoimaging (ONI) have acquired 19,000 sq ft at Linacre House to future proof their rapid expansion programme.
ONI currently occupies 4,000 sq ft at Jordan Hill Business Park and has acquired the additional 19,000 sq ft on a 5 year lease deal at £16.50 per sq ft from Oxford University Press.
ONI’s goal is to bring the most advanced fluorescence microscopy methods to a whole new community of researchers, for whom such experiments may previously have been inaccessible. The Nanoimager was developed over the last 8 years in the research group of Professor Achillefs Kapanidis at the University of Oxford.
Kevin Wood, Head of Lambert Smith Hampton’s Oxford who acquired the office comments “I am delighted to have assisted ONI with the acquisition of their new HQ facility in Oxford. Their growth and success is yet another example of the dynamic Knowledge Economy sector in Oxford”

Richard Venables, Director at VSL & Partners and agent for landlords Oxford University Press said: “Jordan Hill Business Park is strategically located close to Oxford Parkway and Oxford City Centre and it’s great to see ONI expanding within Jordan Hill alongside other occupiers including Pearson and NAG Ltd.”
