Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP) has won the go-ahead to replace a 1920s office block in Mayfair with a mixed-use apartment and hotel scheme
Led by RSHP’s Graham Stirk, the 18,580m² project at 22 Hanover Square, for central London property developer Clivedale, will comprise 41 flats, a 51-bedroom 5-star hotel, a restaurant and a luxury spa.
The existing 11,321m² Portland Stone-clad block was bought by Clivedale in 2014 for £155 million from Scottish Widows Investment Partnership.
According to Clivedale, following a change in Westminster City Council’s planning policy in September 2015, the redevelopment ‘will be the last major office-to-residential conversion allowed in the borough’.
The scheme, due to start on site in April 2017 once the tenancy of current occupant JLL expires, also includes a new plaza and ‘public realm improvement works’ in Brook Street as part of the wider masterplan for the square.
