Thirty storey office-to-residential conversion in central London

 

MPC was instructed to compile a programme of public consultation for proposals to convert a 30 storey office tower into over 200 high-end residential units.

 


Key services:


Objectives:

The design for the remodelled building was the work of an internationally acclaimed architect and also presented a prominent public art installation at street level. The scheme was both high profile and significant for the area and attracted coverage in both the architectural press and Evening Standard.

 

strategy:

As part of its programme, MPC consulted a wide variety of stakeholders, including a number of influential amenity and conservation groups, the local chamber of commerce and ward councillors.

A public exhibition was also organised and the positive feedback that resulted allowed our client to demonstrate a high degree of public support to officers and politicians in the local authority.

 

Result:

The planning application received a planning consent at its first examination.
