After a direct approach by development managers, Mission Street, Ashfold will act as Project Manager and Employer’s Agent on this project.
On behalf of developer Electra Holdings, ORMS are developing plans for a new mixed-use building in London’s West End. The proposals include the demolition of an existing dated and dilapidated property. Only the existing basement will be retained, and it will be refurbished and lowered. A new 7-storey building will be erected above, of which the basement, ground and first floor will host an A3 restaurant space, with nine boutique apartments occupying the remaining floors.
This project is not without its challenges. As well as requiring close coordination with TfL due to the proximity of the Piccadilly line, and the ever-present possibility of uncovering unexploded WW2 bombs, the site is set within a very congested, densely occupied area. As such, access will be restricted and materials storage and deliveries will require close management to avoid programme delays.
