Designed by Foster + Partners, the redevelopment of the iconic Grade II Listed Whiteleys Department Store into The Whiteley London will include prime residential apartments and townhouses, new shops and restaurants, a large-scale gym and a Six Senses hotel and spa – the first in the UK – as well as a social wellness club.
The original Grade II Listed façade, famous clock and dome will all be preserved with a new public courtyard created in the centre of the building. The grand staircase will be incorporated into the hotel.
The building – famed for its collonaded façade and rooftop cupulas – has stood on the site on Queensway in west London since 1911 when Whiteleys was one of London’s first luxury department stores.
G&T is providing Project Management and Employer’s Agent services for the planning, design, procurement, demolition, rebuild and fit-out of the former department store as well as Cost Management services for the hotel fit-out.
