Art-Invest Real Estate submits proposals to refurbish Sackville House
Art-Invest Real Estate (Art-Invest) announces that it has recently submitted a Planning Application to Westminster City Council for the refurbishment of Sackville House, Piccadilly to deliver 30,000 sq. ft of significantly enhanced, Grade A and sustainably-led offices with retail space across the ground floor.
The proposals seek to reposition Sackville House, which is Grade II listed situated on the corner of Sackville Street and Piccadilly, Mayfair, with a comprehensive internal refurbishment and extension to both the roof and rear. The building’s historic significance is central to the proposals with the existing building largely retained.
Through rejuvenating Sackville House, Art-Invest is maximising the building’s potential to provide employment in the area, and to again become a prominent Piccadilly building, with a vibrant ground floor offer for all to benefit from. The sustainable refurbishment of the building will extend the building’s usable life by ensuring opportunities to improve embodied and operational carbon performance.
Buckley Gray Yeoman (BGY) were appointed by Art-Invest to work on the planning application. BGY is widely renowned for its proven track record in working with listed buildings to deliver sensitive and authentic projects, and the practice shares Art-Invest’s vision of bringing back to life this landmark corner building.
Providing new wellbeing amenities for occupiers, improving the roofscape and significantly increasing the building’s biodiversity are key components of the application.
By placing sustainability and wellbeing at the forefront of design Art-Invest is looking to attract tenants who will take pride in occupying this building, appreciative of its cultural and historical significance alongside its prime location and leading workspace offer.
Submission of the planning application for Sackville House, follows Art-Invest’s recent successful detailed planning approval at Canada Water Dockside. The 4.5-acre site in Canada Water is one of London’s largest and most innovative developments. It brings to central London an exciting and unique proposition; a new workspace hub offering Grade A, future-focused buildings with new places to eat, drink and relax fronting the water’s edge, surrounded by 130 acres of open green space.
Art-Invest is targeting the determination of its proposals for Sackville House by Westminster City Council in early 2024.
Luka Vukotic, Head of Development and Partner, Art-Invest Real Estate, said: “Our proposals for Sackville House will deliver a much-needed rejuvenation of this important listed building. By closely consulting with local stakeholders our team has sensitively repositioned the building to significantly improve its workplace offer, sustainability credentials, accessibility and aesthetic as a landmark in London’s Piccadilly.”
Victoria Cooper-Kempski, Buckley Gray Yeoman, added: “Buckley Gray Yeoman are delighted to have submitted planning on behalf of Art-Invest for this special building in Mayfair. Sackville House is a beautiful building, steeped in history, and with an exciting future ahead. At BGY, our passion lies celebrating the character existing buildings whilst giving then an extra lease of life. At Sackville House, the proposed scheme retains as much of the building’s fabric and heritage as possible whilst delivering an exemplar commercial building for the next generation.”
