St. James's Gateway
The St James's Gateway Scheme will consolidate 7 existing buildings into 1 new building and 1 refurbished listed building.
The scheme will comprise 57,000 sq ft of commercial office space, 21,000 sq ft of retail space and 19,000 sq ft of residential units for private sales and lettings along with public realm enhancements to Eagle Place, Jermyn Street, Piccadilly and Lower Regent Street.
Situated in the St James's Conservation Area, the new building blends contemporary modern façades with retained façades to provide a well considered piece of commercial architecture occupying a prominent position on Piccadilly that will comprise 8 retail units to Piccadilly and Jermyn Street, 6 floors of office accommodation and 5 apartments overlooking Jermyn Street. The refurbished listed building retains much of the existing fabric with the Jermyn Street and Lower Regent elevations being retained whilst a new core is added to the rear of the building and the floorplates are re-planned to accommodate 11 apartments.
The scheme utilises ground source heat piles to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating, a Code for Sustainable Homes score of Level 4 for the new building and 3 for the refurbished building and an EPC rating of B.
World-renowned artist Richard Deacon has been commissioned to create a dramatic sculpture as part of the building's Piccadilly façade; the artwork formed in glazed terracotta has been thoughtfully integrated into the architecture and will provide a perfect contrast to the quiet order evident in the buildings lower storeys.
