Land Securities has got the green light for two more schemes in London’s Victoria a month after Westminster City Council approved its plans for the Victoria Transport Interchange (VTI2).
It has won planning permission to redevelop Wellington House and Selborne House.
Colette O’Shea, head of development of Land Securities’ London portfolio, said: ‘Victoria is on the way to becoming the commercial centre of the West End.
‘Land Securities’ relationship with Victoria spans decades and our understanding of its changing needs underpins everything we do in the area. Selborne House and Wellington House form the next exciting chapter of the improvement process along Victoria Street. We will continue the regeneration ripple effect, attracting new residents, businesses and visitors.’
Selborne House, a 1960s office building, will be replaced by a new office building with ground floor retail, designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architccts and Swanke Hayden Connell.
The redevelopment of Wellington House will comprise 59 apartments and is designed by John McAslan + Partners.
