Buckley Gray Yeoman gets OK for hidden Holborn project

Buckley Gray Yeoman's proposals for Hand Court in Holborn

Practice’s plans for Hand Court redevelopment given the high-five

Buckley Gray Yeoman has won planning permission for proposals to redevelop a run of buildings in an alley off High Holborn in central London.

Its scheme would see the demolition of 18-21 Hand Court and the restoration of a neighbouring former pub, formerly known as the City of New York, at Nos 22-23.

The three-storey office building earmarked for demolition will be replaced with a five-storey block with a fluted façade and bronze metalwork under Buckley Gray Yeoman’s proposals, drawn up for Dubai-based investment and development firm SRG Holding. It will deliver a total of 1,730sq m of new space, split between offices and a roof terrace on the upper floors and retail at ground level.
