Successfully achieving approvals for the redevelopment of the iconic Grade II listed Bush House.
Following the departure of the BBC World Service from Bush House Estate, Aldwych, the London Planning Team worked with Westminster City Council and successfully achieved over 12 permissions for the renewal of the 600,000 sq ft estate, allowing for major or multi-tenant occupation.
The project was particularly complex due to the Centre Block’s significance as a listed building and a key component in the Aldwych – Kingsway streetscape. By holding early discussions with council officers and fully assessing the historic significance of the estate, we were able to convince them of the need for the development works and agreed all protected areas, including the existing retail arcade. Risk was minimised by submitting multiple separate applications across the estate.
As a result, Bush House will now be suitable for modern office occupiers on completion of the works and a comfortable environment for a new generation of businesses.
