Land Securities has decided to novate the one-time Foster + Partners ace Partington – who left Hamiltons (now BFLS) to set up on his own last September – to take forward the mixed-use development off Oxford Road, central London.
BFLS will play no further design role in the project.
A spokesman for BFLS said the move had been amicable and that there was a ‘certain logic’ behind it, with Partington having worked on the scheme since conception.
He added: ‘Our work is done on the project now but we have maintained a cordial relationship with Land Sec and it is not the end of our relationship with them.’
‘People working on the project have been deployed elsewhere.’
