Westminster City Council has granted planning permission to Grosvenor Britain & Ireland (‘Grosvenor’) to create a new hub for retailers, designers and makers at Eccleston Place, near Victoria station.
Designed by architects BuckleyGrayYeoman, the scheme will see four buildings sensitively reconfigured and refurbished to provide circa 80,000 sq ft shops, co-working space and eateries, clustered around a carefully landscaped courtyard.
Co-working space for a mix of creative businesses.
Retail space for ‘up-and-coming’ designers and makers.
Cafés and restaurants.
A carefully landscaped, privately managed courtyard with flexible event and community space.
A boutique fitness space.
A new pedestrian route from Ebury Street to the courtyard, connecting the scheme with the complementary retail on Elizabeth Street.
Anna Farnes, Director of London Estate Development Programme, Grosvenor Britain & Ireland said: “This is a really exciting opportunity to convert an underused space in South Belgravia into a creative hub for entrepreneurs and independent retailers. This new place - for visitors, workers and residents – will play an important part in contributing to the diverse and creative character of the area.”
Paul White, Director of BuckleyGrayYeoman 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 development will centre around a courtyard on a new pedestrian route through the centre of the block, creating a tranquil, pleasant place populated by small businesses, start-ups, retailers, cafes, designers and makers.”
