Overview

The Whiteley is a redevelopment of the Whiteleys, Grade II listed department store, on Queensway in Bayswater, London W2.

Foster + Partners-designed new £1bn residential, retail, dining and hotel complex will contain 139 apartments and townhouses, 20 new shops and restaurants, a cinema, a large-scale gym, and a Six Senses hotel and spa - the first in Britain - with 110 rooms, as well as its social wellness club.

The regeneration of Whiteleys will comprise over 1 million sq. ft.
