BuckleyGrayYeoman and Grosvenor secure planning to transform the currently under-used Eccleston Place in Victoria 

BuckleyGrayYeoman and Grosvenor Britain & Ireland have secured planning permission to create a new hub for retailers, designers and makers at Eccleston Place, near Victoria station in London.

The scheme seeks to create a new destination for innovative entrepreneurs in Victoria and comprises the sensitive refurbishment of circa 80,000 sq ft spread over four buildings to provide shops, co-working space and eateries, clustered around a landscaped courtyard.

BuckleyGrayYeoman will build upon the existing character of the individual buildings, refurbishing them throughout and inserting new shopfronts at ground level to activate the streetscape. A landscaped courtyard, with a new pedestrian link between Eccleston Place and Ebury Street will increase permeability through the site and provide a flexible event space. 

Paul White, Director of BuckleyGrayYeoman said: “The Eccleston Place development draws on the surrounding Belgravia street pattern to create life and activity in a currently under-used group of buildings. The development will centre around a courtyard on a new pedestrian route through the centre of the block, creating a tranquil, pleasant place populated by small businesses, start-ups, retailers, cafes, designers and makers.” 

New uses that will contribute to the diverse and creative character of the area will include:  office space for small businesses and entrepreneurs, retail space for ‘up-and-coming’ designers and makers, cafés and restaurants with space to host creative workshops and a boutique fitness space.
