The second property business in this year's top 10, Great Portland Estates takes a 20-place leap to seventh on the back of its prime central London commercial property portfolio. The group owns a large chunk of Fitzrovia, the traditionally bohemian district to the north of Oxford Street which stands to be substantially gentrified by the arrival of Crossrail in 2017.With project spend set to total £505m, it's embarking on its largest-ever expansion, to include an upscale office complex for Facebook and a 224,000sq ft development to be built over the new Bond Street station in Hanover Square.
