Piercy plans new high for Paddington Green blocks

The proposed revision of Piercy's Paddington Green proposals for Berkeley Homes, which adds an extra storey to most parts of the development

Practice looks to add additional storey to West End Gate development

Piercy & Company has submitted plans to add an extra storey to parts of a proposed Paddington Green housing development in west London, boosting the number of units by 8%.

The practice won planning permission for two blocks of Berkeley Homes’ West End Gate scheme at the end of last year. At the time the consent was for up to 200 homes.

Papers lodged with Westminster council propose adding an extra storey to most parts the development’s blocks G and H – which would take them to 14 storeys and 16 storeys at their respective highest points. The documents stressed that part of the scheme that is immediately next to a grade II-listed Georgian house on Paddington Green would remain at five storeys.
