Westminster approves huge mixed-use scheme despite Victorian Society objections
Westminster city council has approved plans for the redevelopment of a run of buildings fronting Oxford Street that will deliver 3,274 sq m of retail space and 5,576 sq m of new office space.
Architect Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands’ scheme covers a block between Wardour Street and Berwick street and will preserve parts of a grade II-listed building on the site, and the façade of another locally-listed structure.
The development, created for client for Daejan Investments requires the façade of the “building of merit” – Berwick House – to be jacked up by 1.2m to “assimilate levels through the site”, LDS said.
