Development Securities has obtained detailed planning permission from Westminster council for phase two of its Paddington Central office scheme. The 40,000 m2, Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed scheme is on the northern edge of the site next to the A40 in west London. The full-height glazed atrium reception will be accessed from a new boulevard to the front of the building. The first phase has been let to tenants such as Visa and Prudential. The project team includes structural engineer Arup, services engineer Roger Preston & Partners and QS AYH.
