BuckleyGrayYeoman wins planning to refurb ex-BBC building

Shoreditch-based BuckleyGrayYeoman has won planning permission to refurbishment a former BBC building on Great Portland Street in central London

The building which was built in 1930 was home to the BBC music department until it relocated in 2013.

The plans for the five-storey building include a new rooftop extension to create additional office space and the ground floor will be converted to retail space.

The extension will increase the buildings floor space from 2,833m² to 3,622m².

Matt Yeoman, director of BuckleyGrayYeoman said: ‘The redevelopment of Yalding House will make a positive contribution to Great Portland Street and the wider Harley Street Conservation Area.

‘The new office entrance on Great Portland Street and the provision for a retail offer at ground floor will revitalise the building’s presence at street level. We have also taken great care to design an extension to the building that is contemporary yet sympathetic to the strongly traditional character of the Harley Street Conservation Area.’

The project is due to start on site in April 2014, and will complete mid-2015.
