In with the new office and residential scheme at 40 Broadway, London 

On behalf of The Great Victoria Partnership (a joint venture between Great Portland Estates Plc and The Liverpool Victoria Friendly Society) Allies and Morrison have achieved planning consent from Westminster City Council for the proposed redevelopment of buildings at 40 Broadway, London SW1.

The scheme is located opposite St James Park tube in the Broadway and Christchurch Gardens Conservation Area and backs onto a number of Grade 1 listed houses in Queen Annes Gate, adjacent to St James Park.

Replacing a series of buildings dating from the 1920s to 1980s, the project comprises a new 8-storey office building (10,875 sq m) fronting Broadway as well as seven residential flats and one family ‘garden house’ along Carteret Street.

Allies and Morrison developed the design over 18 months; an extensive consultation process with Westminster City Council and local residents formed an integral part of the design process.

The Broadway elevation to the office building curves gently to respond to the street alignment and comprises a composition of Portland Stone wall and metal roofing punctuated with metal lined windows and dormers that fold out of the façade. A sloping cornice line ties the top of the wall into a formal composition with the adjacent buildings. The residential buildings feature hand-laid brick with punched window openings and timber and metal detailing.
