West One Shopping Centre Partners LP (a Joint Venture between NBIM and British Land PLC) want to refurbish and partially redevelop the site of a 1970s office and retail building, to provide additional and more efficient office floorspace whilst retaining circa. 60% of the existing structure. Our initial thinking for the site will also introduce a new high-quality façade, reconnecting the building to the surrounding area. At the same time, the entrance to the Bond Street station and retail outlets in the first, ground and basement floors will remain open while any development is taking place. Over the summer, we held our first round of consultation on the early plans for the refurbishment and partial redevelopment of the site. We would like to thank everyone who took part in the first stage of consultation and provided their feedback on the proposals. After reviewing all feedback, we are now pleased to share our detailed plans for the future of the site. This can be found on the ‘Have your say’ section of this website. If you have any questions about our proposals, please do not hesitate to get in touch using the details on our Contact page.
