Description of Westminster City Hall

Westminster City Hall is an office building in Victoria, London SW1.

19-storey Westminster City Hall is home to Westminster City Council.

The building is just a few minutes' walk from Victoria Station.


2019 - ISG completes the £60m refurbishment works to improve the efficiency and running cost of the building.

2016 - The building is held leasehold from Land Securities. While the unexpired term of the lease provides the Council with over 50 years of secure occupancy, the lease is not marketable enough to deliver sufficient value to enable a wholesale move and the short lease term is unattractive to a residential developer. However, the Council requires only half of the space provided by City Hall and rent review terms of the lease provide that the Council pays rent equivalent to 66.6% of market value. This enables the Council to generate a “profit rent” on surplus accommodation within the building.

Land Securities has announced that little Waitrose is coming to Victoria, opening a new store in Westminster’s City Hall. The new store, with a sales area of 3,000 sq ft, is set to open in the summer of 2013 and will create up to 50 new jobs.

City Hall is a short walk away from the corporate offices of the John Lewis Partnership and the head office of John Lewis in Victoria Street. Waitrose opened its latest little Waitrose shop on April 5th in Vauxhall and plans to open at least another nine in 2013, including the new store in Victoria.

The arrival of Waitrose in Victoria follows Land Securities’ successful lettings in March to Jamie Oliver across the ground and first floor of Kings Gate, and to The Royal Quarter Café at Wellington House.

The lettings reinforce Land Securities’ vision for Victoria as a destination in its own right where Londoners will want to work, shop and socialise.

Colette O’Shea, Head of Development in London at Land Securities, said:

“We are excited to welcome little Waitrose to Victoria where it will be a great addition to the evolving retail offer in the area. We are delighted with the continued success we’ve had in attracting a diverse range of tenants to Victoria and will keep talking to Londoners about what they want for the area so that it remains one of the most exciting and vibrant parts of our London portfolio”.

Nigel Keen, Waitrose Director of Development, said:

“This is an exciting opportunity to add the Waitrose brand to a thriving retail destination and underlines our ambition to continue improving our accessibility to those in the capital who wish to shop with us."
