Grosvenor secures planning for creative hub at London's Eccleston Place
Westminster City Council has granted planning permission to Grosvenor for the creation of new hub for retailers, designers and makers at Londons Eccleston Place, near Victoria station.
Designed by architects Buckley Gray Yeoman, the scheme will see four buildings reconfigured and refurbished to provide 80,000 square feet of space for shops, a co-working area and eateries, clustered around a landscaped courtyard.
The co-working area will be for a mix of creative businesses while the retail space will be reserved for up-and-coming designers and makers.
There will also be cafés and restaurants, a boutique fitness space, and a new pedestrian route from Ebury Street to the courtyard to connect the scheme with the retailers on Elizabeth Street.
Anna Farnes, director of the London Estate development programme at 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.”
