Westminster Council has approved Grosvenor Britain & Ireland's plans for the Cundy Street Quarter.

Grosvenor is replacing five existing buildings with new housing including 88 affordable homes (including 44 social rented), senior living housing for up to 170 people and 75 open market homes. These will be framed by new and improved green spaces and introduce a community hub, food store and cinema to the area.

The approval follows the deferral of the application in February 2021 to consider the impact of removing the top floor from the senior living building fronting Ebury Street.

The revised proposal met the request to reduce the impact on daylight and sunlight whilst also minimising the reduction in new intermediate rent homes for Westminster.

Anna Bond, Executive Director - Development, Grosvenor Britain & Ireland commented: “From the outset we wanted to create a place with better homes, more facilities and handsome public realm, built in a way that helps Belgravia adapt to the climate emergency. With this approval, we can now get on and deliver exactly that for the community. They have played a pivotal role at every stage and we’ve very grateful to everyone who has contributed.”

The development includes a £10m investment in new and existing public spaces including revitalising Ebury Square Gardens. 27,000 sq ft of green and blue roofs will enhance local biodiversity and help reduce water consumption by 45%.

In addition to the increase in green space, the scheme will result in a 94% reduction in operational carbon and a 55% reduction in total operational and embodied carbon, compared to what’s there today.
