New Bond Street Secures a Resolution to Grant Permission

APRIL 2017

We have secured a resolution to grant permission for the redevelopment of 105-106 New Bond Street in the heart of the City of Westminster.

The development by Rolfe Judd Architecture for Samocar Worldwide is dual-fronted, facing both New Bond Street and Haunch of Venison Yard, with the New Bond Street facade retained. Three floors of Class A1 retail and four floors of office accommodation will be provided. As the proposal includes an uplift in commercial floorspace of more than 30%, the scheme also offers a policy-compliant financial contribution towards affordable housing.

Describing the scheme, planning officers commented that the proposed redevelopment would enhance the appearance of the building facing New Bond Street and also improve Haunch of Venison Yard. In addition, the proposal will add to the character of the Mayfair Conservation Area and neighbouring listed buildings.

“This is a win-win for the applicant and the City Council. The scheme provides not just a net uplift in retail and office floorspace but it replaces dilapidated and hugely inefficient space that has been vacant for quite some time. This scheme is exactly what the Westminster’s Strategic Policies envisaged when they were revised and adopted last year.”

The application was approved unanimously by the City Council.
