Project Blue, the joint venture between Christian Candy’s CPC Group and Qatari Diar, has submitted the planning application for the redevelopment of Chelsea Barracks.

A total 638 apartments will be developed at the site, half of which will be affordable, as well as a boutique hotel, retail units, a community hall and a community sports facility featuring a 25m swimming pool.

The private apartments will feature designs from Rogers, Stirk, Harbour + Partners and, with Candy & Candy as interior designers, will be among the most expensive apartments in the capital.

The site was bought from the MoD in February for £959m.
