BuckleyGrayYeoman has secured planning permission to create a new hub for retailers, designers and makers at Eccleston Place, on behalf of Grosvenor Britain and Ireland. The scheme seeks to create a new destination for innovative entrepreneurs in Victoria and comprises the sensitive refurbishment of 80, 000 sq ft spread over four buildings to provide shops, co-working spaces and eateries, clustered around a landscaped courtyard.
BuckleyGrayYeoman will build upon the existing character of the individuals buildings, refurbishing them throughout and inserting new shopfronts at ground level to activate the streetscape. The landscaped courtyard, with a new pedestrian link between Eccleston Place and Ebury Street will increase permeability through the site and provide a flexible event space.
