Rolfe Judd transforms former Dickins and Jones building in commercial redevelopment

Rolfe Judd negotiated a particularly sensitive planning application to refurbish and extend the Grade II listed former Dickins and Jones department store on Regent Street. Unlocking this great building’s value had to be balanced with careful negotiations for change of use, conservation area consent and listed buildings consent.

The project transformed the existing single-use building into a vibrant new mixed-use development. As a shopping experience, the building features a number of major flagship stores over the lower four floors, whilst a panoramic roof-top 'destination restaurant', contemporary office accommodation and an atrium space designed to open up and revitalise Argyll Street at the building’s rear complete the overall solution.
