Sally Army calls in McAslan to redevelop its City hq

  • Comment

The Salvation Army has enlisted John McAslan and Partners to look at the development potential of its historic hq near St Paul's Cathedral in London.

The Queen Victoria Street building, used by the charity since 1881, may be knocked down, refurbished or split between the army and commercial offices, said architect Adam Brown. The new scheme would aim to increase floor area from 8500m2 to 18,000m2. The C-shaped building has little environmental servicing, with floor-to-ceiling heights to tight for installation of air-conditioning.

The final scheme is likely to include a scaled-down hq and heritage centre with new-build offices.The architect is writing up the brief and likely costs. A planning application will be made in around six months, and John McAslan and Partners will see it through the process before its commission ends.
