Westminster City Council has granted planning permission for a ‘creative hub’ near London’s Victoria station by BuckleyGrayYeoman.
The practice’s design for property developer Grosvenor will see four buildings at Eccleston Place reconfigured and refurbished to provide 7,400m² of retail space for designers and makers, co-working space for a mix of creative businesses, cafés and restaurants, and a fitness space.
The amenities will be clustered around a landscaped courtyard, which will link to Ebury Street via a new pedestrian route.
BuckleyGrayYeoman director Paul White said: ‘The Eccleston Place development draws on the surrounding Belgravia street pattern to create life and activity in a currently under-used group of buildings.’
The green light for the project comes soon after the London-based practice received the go-ahead to refurbish and extend an office block at 77 Coleman Street in the City of London. It also revealed its plans for the redevelopment of South Kensington Tube station in west London earlier this month.
