Kanda are absolutely buzzing today after a great evening where our City & Westminster team helped our clients to achieve a record three planning consents on the same evening!
Working on a real mix of schemes, the consents included Five Kingdom Street at Paddington Central on behalf of our client British Land which will deliver the largest low carbon cargo-bike only logistics hub in Europe, facilitating deliveries within Westminster using electric cargo-bikes, helping to reduce congestion and emissions and improving air quality.
Kanda was also delighted to support Kajima with their plans for the retrofit of Orwell House on Berners Street, Fitzrovia. The redevelopment includes proposals to refurbish and extend Orwell House by one additional storey, retaining 60% of the existing structure and delivering a sustainable and flexible office-led building that will reduce carbon emissions and deliver a low carbon building. The application was unanimously approved by the committee members.
