Project Blue, the joint venture between Christian Candy’s CPC and Qatari Diar, has revealed new images of its Chelsea Barracks scheme.

The computer generated images show the 638-apartment development from within the scheme, the affordable apartment on the right and the luxury apartments on the left.

Another image shows the relationship between the 14-block development and the surrounding areas.

Chelsea Barracks, on which Candy & Candy are planning and development managers and interior designers, has received critici9sm from Grosvenor and deputy mayor Kit Malthouse.


Support for design proposals
However the proposals, designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners, have received support from CABE and Mayor of London Boris Johnson.

‘Our design has been honed over the last 12 months after extensive and continuing consultation with all local stakeholders and Westminster City Council officers and members,’ said Christian Candy. ‘As a result, the Westminster City Council officers in our meetings have been extremely supportive of the existing design.

‘Additionally, both Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE) and Mayor of London, Boris Johnson recognise the quality of the proposed architecture and its positive impact on the local townscape.

‘We are working closely with our own neighbours including the Belgravia Residents Association and Grosvenor.’

The development, which has been funded through a £1.2bn loan, will include a 25m swimming pool, a day care centre, a boutique hotel, restaurants and a spa.

The land was bought from the Ministry of Defence in January for £959m.
