Piercy & Company receives planning on apartment scheme on Oxford Street, London

Piercy & Company’s office to residential conversion of Oxford House at 70-88 Oxford Street for Land Securities has received a planning consent from Westminster City Council. Piercy & Company’s design remodels the 1960’s commercial building into 89 apartments and double height retail spaces.

The scheme retains a significant part of the internal structure of the existing commercial building. However, the appearance and function of the building would be completely transformed with a new articulated façade, double height retail frontage and high end apartments.

The façade responds to the vibrant and varied architectural context of Oxford Street, with a folded design inspired by traditional bay windows, bringing depth, shadow and articulation to the previously very flat surface. The bays provide views east and west along Oxford Street, creating a finely textured façade and conveying building’s change from commercial to residential space.

The internal space of all apartments will exceed the requirements of the Mayor of London’s Housing Design Standards. A mixture of studio, one, two, three and four bedroom apartments on the 2nd to 9th floors of the building will be accessed by a new entrance on Newman Street, allowing for a continuous double height retail frontage on Oxford Street itself.

A significant number of apartments will enjoy external terraces, and a large communal landscaped space will be located above the residential car park at the rear of the building. This residential development is one of several landmark schemes by leading UK architects which are together contributing to the regeneration of the east end of Oxford Street.

Colette O’Shea, Head of Development, Land Securities London Portfolio said: “Piercy & Company’s elegant folded façade reflects the quality of the new apartments and greatly improved retail space. Their extension and remodelling of this tired 1960’s office building is a sophisticated addition to the on-going regeneration of East Oxford Street.”

Brook Avenue | Wembley Park HA9

Green light for 111 residential units in wooded area of Wembley Park, London

PCKO Architects has won planning consent for 111 new homes on Brook Avenue in Wembley Park, London. The development for Network Housing Group will transform the site of a former car park, creating a new housing development of four apartment blocks and two semi-detached houses.

Mature trees already on site will be retained or replanted to create landscaping with a woodland character to encourage local biodiversity, screen the development from the road and provide a pleasant outdoor amenity space for residents.

UK airport debate continues as Farrells, Gensler and Heathrow all release plans:

The new proposal gives three possible locations for the third runway, with the option of a fourth in the future should one be necessary. The most northerly option would be quickest and cheapest but offers the least benefits to local residents in terms of noise and has the biggest residential property impact.

Official website: http://www.worldarchitecturenews.com...pload_id=23131

London Britannia Airport | Thames Estuary ($73bn)

Plans for a £47.3bn transport hub in the Thames Estuary have been presented by TESTRAD Consortium in partnership with Gensler. London Britannia Airport has been designed to sit on an artificial island to minimise disruption to London residences with all noise disruption occurring over water. There is also the possibility for expansion from 172 million passengers per annum to 200 million passengers per annum following an initial construction period of 7 years. If selected, the estuary airport would have 6 runways planned to allow triple and quadruple independent landings and takeoffs with proven air traffic control technology. All active runway crossings would be avoided and taxiing times kept to a minimum.








Gatwick Constellation Plan

Gatwick Airport and Sir Terry Farrell have released plans for Gatwick to become part of a ‘constellation’ scheme linking three airports. The proposal suggests a location for a second runway at Gatwick with details of environmental and noise impacts and how the constellation scheme would benefit the economy.






Heathrow Third Runway

Heathrow Airport has released revised plans for the construction of a third runway, giving three options for the location of the project. Arguing that the realisation of a third runway would be ‘quicker and cheaper’ than building a new hub airport, Heathrow states that its proposal would increase the current number of flights per year from 480,000 to 740,000 when completed in 2025-9.

It takes till 2025-2029 for just a new runway at Heathrow? Didn't realise how long it takes to construct one :S Then how long would the new hub airport take? lol, If there is such a huge need for air capacity they should speed things up asap.

Wow the Thames Estuary plan is the bomb. How would people get to and from primarily, Tube? The money the company would generate from on site building rights for hotels and such. $$$$

I hope the estuary airport gets built, although surely having it on an artificial island rather than on land that is already there (Isle of Grain) would increase costs quite significantly?

An artificial island in the estuary would cost more than building on the Isle of Grain at the shore.

There would be a high speed rail service linking to HS1, and local rail linking to the Southeastern network.
