Land Sec Gets Approval For Victoria Buildings

One of Britain's largest companies, Land Securities can get out the party hats thanks to the approval of another two of their projects by Westminster City Council to go in London's Victoria district, an area favoured by the British government.

Selborne House and Wellington House are neighbouring schemes that when complete will provide Victoria with a mix of offices, private market and affordable housing and a variety of retail outlets.

The larger of the schemes will replace the existing oppressive Selborne house on Victoria Street replaced by a modern glass clad affair designed by renowned architects Pelli Clarke Pelli.

The design features a 13 storey tall prism-like glass clad mass that compliments KPFs Victoria Interchange plans and has a tapered end which prevents overshadowing to Buckingham Gate and keeps the area open. The 39,597 square metre Selborne house will mostly be premium office space with ground floor retail.

Wellington House is penned by John McAslan and Partners and will be clad in reddish stone with recessed balconies for residents to enjoy the views from. This will have 59 residential units ranging from studio sized to four bed roomed apartments.

Land Securities have been a leading force in the redevelopment of the in the redevelopment of the Westminster area having invested heavily in the nearby Victoria Interchange redevelopment and the now complete Cardinal Place.
