Frogmore is on target to receive planning permission for a 20,000 sq ft mixed use scheme to the north of Oxford Street.
The property company, run by chief executive Paul White, has had his planning application for the buildings at 98 – 102 Wigmore Street recommended for approval by Westminster planning officers.
The property company intends to demolish all the early 20th century buildings behind the Wigmore Street façade.
Mixed use scheme
The new buildings will comprise around 4,000 sq ft of retail on the basement and ground floors and 16,000 sq ft of offices across five floors.
Two mews buildings at the back of the site will be demolished and redeveloped as two mews homes.
The plans will result in the loss of Spanish restaurant La Rueda the report says the benefits of the scheme ‘outweigh the concerns regarding the loss of the existing restaurant.’
The application will be heard by Westminster Council’s Planning and City Development Committee next Thursday.
