Knightsbridge Gate involves the retention of a 120m long Edwardian façade, demolition of a series of existing apartment blocks together with the restoration and integration of existing Listed buildings at either end of the site. A new retail, office and residential building will also be constructed behind the retained façade.
Fronting directly on to Knightsbridge, the scheme will provide 15 new apartments fully fitted out to the highest specification, with the structure being acoustically isolated from the noise of the road and Piccadilly line running below. The development will also incorporate up to 18 new retail units on the ground floor with over 18,000 sq ft of commercial space above.
The professional team includes lead architect Dixon Jones, MSMR residential fit-out architect, Long & Partners MEP and WSP Structures with Sir Robert McAlpine delivering the new building works, historic building restoration and fit-out.
Works started on site in 2016 with completion of the scheme scheduled for the end of 2020.
