A Bennetts Associates-designed mixed-use scheme at One Bedford Avenue, central London, has been given the green light by Camden council
The 115,000 sq ft redevelopment for developers Exemplar and The Bedford Estates comprises high-quality retail and office accommodation on a corner site on the east side of Tottenham Court Road.
The project replaces two properties with a single eight-storey building, comprising retail accommodation at street and lower ground level and offices above.
The office floors are designed to achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating, with the retail areas achieving ‘Very Good’.
The project is due for completion in 2016.
Rab Bennetts, director of Bennetts Associates said, “This prominent site demands a building with physical presence that also respects the backdrop of listed buildings on Bedford Square.
“We have spent a great deal of time consulting local bodies so we are delighted to receive the support of Camden’s officers and planning committee.”
