Land Securities has submitted a planning application for its Wellington House development on Buckingham Gate in Victoria.

The application follows those applications made for the Victoria Transport Interchange 2 and Selborne House proposed development sites.

Land Securities plans that the cluster of new developments will regenerate the area.

The existing Wellington House will be replaced by a 96,000 sq ft residential building providing 59 apartments, ranging from studios to a four-bed duplex and a three-bed penthouse.

The proposed design is by John McAslan + Partners.

Colette O’Shea, head of development for Land Securities' London Portfolio, said: 'We are proud to submit the last in a series of planning applications for Victoria.

'We believe passionately that together these new developments will help deliver a long-term future for the area, which deserves an injection of new investment and energy to boost regeneration and create a better environment for residents, workers and visitors alike.’

Land Securities’ three planning applications for Victoria are the results of extensive community and stakeholder consultation in Westminster. Subject to planning consent, work on the scheme could start in May 2009.
