Derwent unveils two new West End schemes

  • Comment

Stirling Prize-winner Stanton Williams and Piercy & Company are designing two new schemes in London’s West End, the AJ can reveal

Derwent London has submitted plans for the projects in Westminster including a redevelopment of its own headquarters into a 5,400m² of luxury apartment block.

The developer, which released its half-year results today (14 August) has appointed Stanton Williams to design the redevelopment of its current office which would include four one-bedroom flats; eight two-bedroom flats; 14 three-bedroom flats and three four-bedroom apartments. The current plans have divided the space into individual apartments on a preliminary basis.

The new development includes provision for 60 bikes and 29 cars.

Meanwhile Derwent have also hired architects Piercy & Company to design a new 105,000 sq ft building at 25 - 33 Berners Street in Fitzrovia. The plans would see the demolition of the Richard Seifert-designed post-war modernist office block and the neo-Georgian office designed by Robert Angell & Curtiss.

The replacement building would provide approximately 21 per cent of extra floorspace and include shops and restaurants at ground level.

Derwent submitted plans for the site in April which would ’replace the existing three buildings of relatively dated and inefficient office accommodation, with a new building that will provide effi cient and attractive offi ce space with floor to ceiling heights that meet modern requirements and help future-proof the building’.

Derwent’s half-year figures showed that the firm posted a 69 per cent jump in pre-tax profits up to £371.4million up from £219.8million the previous year.
