Lynch bags planning for Victoria Street redevelopment
Lynch Architects has scooped planning permission for this project to redevelop Kingsgate House in Victoria, London
The two-building development replaces the 1966 Burnet, Tait & Partners-designed Kingsgate House on Victoria Street, creating 22,277m² of office space, 102 luxury residential units and 5,125m² of retail.
Colette O’Shea, head of development at Land Securities’ London Portfolio said: ‘Victoria is changing. We began our transformation of the area with Cardinal Place and we are already on site at three other schemes.
‘Kingsgate House is another key stage in our plans to create the new West End destination.’
The project is part of Land Securities’ multi-billion-pound vision for the redevelopment of the central London area surrounding Victoria train station.
Patrick Lynch of Lynch Architects said he was ‘very happy’ to have received the green light for the scheme.
The studio’s design creates new north-south connections across the high street, providing access to the previously obscured Westminster City School and the St James Court hotel.
Construction could start next spring with the project scheduled to complete by 2015. The project was submitted for planning in May this year.
