Dev Sec And Aviva Apply For 4+5 Kingdom Street

Published on 27-10-2009 by
As the final phase of their Paddington Central scheme, Development Securities and Aviva Investors have submitted a new planning application to Westminster Council for Four and Five Kingdom Street.

The site history goes all the way back to May 2000 when outline planning permission was granted. As a result the council only requirse a reserved matters application for any new buildings which must include plans of each floor, views of each elevation, layout of the site including access and many other things which relate to the design and external appearance of the buildings as well as the landscaping and surface areas of the site.

Designed by architects Allies and Morrison, the two new buildings are set perpendicular to each other. They will provide 32,000 square of office space along with a new landscaped garden that will link with an open space that already stands at Sheldon Square making the last piece of the puzzle.

Sitting adjacent to the Novotel London Paddington which was completed in 2008, and the currently under construction Two Kingdom Street that's being built by Skanska.

Heavily glazed, the tallest will be fourteen floors including plant and the ground mezzanine. Large overhanging shades set in uniform rows punctuate the facades which will reduce solar gain in the tower. At the side of the tower a large screen works as a fašade overrun breaking the roofline.

With decisions on the site still to be made by the powers that be, construction times on the project are not yet available but given the success that Development Securities has had on the other parts of Paddington Central, the same can be expected here in the medium term.
