The new development is a mixed-use development with retail, academic facilities and accommodation on the second floor upward. It compromises a new Quad for the college, improve retail facilities activating the frontage and new external spaces. The project is also a catalyst for the improvement of Market Street.

Northgate House will allow the College to: accommodate increased student numbers resulting from its introduction of Computer Science and an expansion of postgraduate places; deliver improved space for students and staff; and provide more access to the work of the College. It will include an innovative Digital Hub designed to promote interdisciplinary research and knowledge exchange. This will foster productive interaction between real and virtual forms of communication, and facilitate engagement with the latest developments in computational tools, methods and techniques across the disciplines that Jesus College supports

The new development with its fourth quad, a new gatehouse and a modern dynamic façade treatment will provide a cornerstone to Oxfords continuous development of the central retail and for the colleges expansion. The team has been developing the scheme up to stage 02 and it has now been submitted for planning.
