NBIM and British Land 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. We are currently in the early stages of engaging with Westminster City Council on both the design and technical aspects of our proposals for West One. As a result, we are keen to hear your feedback on our initial thinking for the future of the site, helping us to shape our detailed proposals before we return for a further round of consultation in the autumn. Our feedback period for this round of consultation has now closed. You can still give your thoughts or ask questions about the proposals using the details on our Contact page.
