PLP's £900m Victoria overhaul masterplan starts on site
The first phase of PLP’s 2.2 hectare Victoria regeneration masterplan will start on site this month
The mixed-use Nova project is the first part of the enormous Land Securities-backed scheme, first unveiled in 2008, to move forward.
The 67,500m² scheme – featuring two buildings designed by PLP and one by Benson and Forsyth – is planned to complete in the second quarter of 2016.
The first phase includes 44,500m² of offices, 7,400m² of retail and 170 apartments across three buildings next to Victoria train station.
Land Securities head of London development Colette O’Shea said: ‘Nothing of this scale and potential has been delivered in this part of the West End before.
‘We are delighted to be continuing our investment in Victoria with a scheme which we believe will become the destination for all looking to find the best that London has to offer in the heart of SW1.’
Nova is part of Land Securities’ 83,000m² PLP-designed masterplan for the area which includes a mixed-use use library and residential scheme by Lynch Architects and another PLP-designed building expected to be delivered in a later phase.
The first phase comprises:
- The Nova Building: 181,500 sq ft (167,000 sq ft residential, 14,500 sq ft retail) – Benson & Forsyth (Flanagan Lawrence are the delivery architect)
- 11 Bressenden Place: 207,000 sq ft ( 184,000 sq ft office, 23,000 sq ft retail) - PLP
- 130 Victoria Street: 338,500 sq ft (296,000 sq ft office, 42,500 sq ft retail) - PLP
