Mixed use scheme to blend seamlessly into London borough's existing heritage fabric 


Squire and Partners, along with Parwick Investments and CORE, have expressed their delight at Westminster City Council’s decision to consent the plans for a new mixed use scheme on Piccadilly, London.

The scheme comprises four buildings near the north-east corner of Green Park. A high quality ten-storey residential building is planned to overlook the park, retail units at ground floor will provide a vibrant street frontage onto Piccadilly, and a commercial office building is at the centre of the site. The scheme also includes a new affordable housing building on Bolton Street.

Additionally, the scheme will create a new mews street between the residential and office buildings linking to a public landscaped courtyard, adding further architectural interest to the existing streetscape, as well as improving access to the site.

A natural palette of materials has been chosen, including Portland Stone facades and metallic finishes, brought together with a high level of craft, detail and architectural integrity. The design is contemporary but sensitive to the heritage context of neighbourhood and the distinct character and variety of the Mayfair conservation area.
