Land Securities Victoria Plans Get Green Light

Land Securities has secured planning permission for their Victoria Transport Interchange 2 (VTI2) development in the west end of London near Victoria Station.

The site lies on an area that is bounded by Buckingham Palace road, Victoria Street, Alington Street, and Bressenden Place and previously included the redevelopment of Portland House, something that has now been dropped.

This time around VTI2 is made up of five buildings in total, three of which are designed by KPF, with another by Benson and Forsyth and the last block one by Lynch Architects.

Office accommodation makes up the main part of the VTI2 project and stars a trio by architects KPF who have designed them in a triangular manner with five sloping roofs creating a complicated visual arrangement that rises to a maximum of 86 metres in height.

The two shorter buildings by the other architects are intended to make up a residential element to the aspect, whilst the project will also have the area around it remodeled from its current hostile urban wasteland, and new pedestrian routes running through it improving access to and from Victoria Station that will be improved as part of the planning gain.

The approval marks the latest stage of long-term plans by Land Securities for the area that also include the independent redevelopment of some of their other holdings including Selborne House and Wellington House.

Buildings 5a and 6b of VTI2 are set to go ahead first with construction scheduled for the middle of 2010 and the last part of the project due for completion in 2017.
