Land Sec looks to re-use site of stalled Hamiltons scheme

Developer Land Securities is seeking to temporarily open up the site of its mothballed Park House project on Oxford Street

Later today Westminster Council’s planning committee is expected to approve proposals to turn the cleared 4,000m² plot in to a space for public events such as outdoor films and music events.

The developer had originally intended to build a 46,000m² mixed-use shopping, office and residential scheme, designed by Hamiltons on the site but is currently ‘planning its next phase of construction’.

Land Sec is one of the first major developers to look at the interim re-use of key dormant sites.

Postscript - 4 September 2009

The planning committee has effectively sent Land Sec back to the drawing board by deferring any decision on the plans. The committee’s chair said the developer should ‘consider more innovative proposals for the site’. It was felt the plans - which included ice skating rinks and fashion shows - were too broad and the council wanted Land Sec to ‘come back with more specific proposals.’
