A former five storey ice factory is a new destination for creative enterprise. 27 Eccleston Place, now known as the Ice Factory, was built in 1830 for Shingleton’s Ice Company Ltd. In its near 200-year history it has been adapted as a coachworks, power station and motor repair centre.
Through sensitive adaptation and preservation, this 21st century reimagining of the Ice Factory provides contemporary workspace, retail and the only roof top restaurant/bar space in the area. The Buckley Grey Yeoman designed building will reflect its industrial heritage while offering 28,923 sq ft retail, office and the only roof top restaurant space in the area. A single occupier is being sought who can deliver all elements the space offers from food and beverage through to retail and work/maker space, building on Eccleston Yard’s reputation as a dynamic creative hub.
Ice Factory sits on the Victoria/Belgravia border offering immediate access to transport hubs and a large office and residential catchment area. It benefits from the popular retail, food and well-being offer in nearby Elizabeth Street as well as Grosvenor’s award-winning development at Eccleston Yards, home to Barry’s Bootcamp, Wild by Tart and Re:Mind, to which it has direct pedestrian access.
Consistent with Grosvenor Property UK’s sustainability goals, the office element of the proposals is working to achieve BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and the retail to ‘Very Good’.
The Ice Factory has taken a significant step towards full occupancy with Javelin Global Commodities, one of the world’s leading commodity marketing and trading companies, expected to move in early 2023.
