Cooper tries to trump Witanhurst

The same developer who recently managed to sell the most expensive property in the UK, doubling its value in just five weeks, has set his sights on a new London project which is set to provide three of the largest homes in the city.

Marcus Cooper made a cool £43million when he sold Witanhurst, the property used as the location for UK television show Fame Academy, for £75million in 2007. Currently the second largest solitary residential property in London, Cooper hopes to trump Witanhurst's success following the approval of planning permission for the conversion of 50,000 sq ft of offices in Regent's Park into three city mansions.

The Grade I and II listed buildings are currently being used as offices for charity Cancer Research UK but they are soon to vacate the property. An application was submitted to the Borough of Camden council in July for the "Change of use of 6-10 Cambridge Terrace and 1-2 Chester Gate from offices (Class B1) to 3 x dwellinghouses (Class C3)."

The plans include the installation of a glazed sliding roof and the excavation of the basement.
