Welcome

Old Park Lane Management (OPLM) are bringing forward linked proposals for 25 to 27 St George Street and 17 Old Park Lane in Mayfair.

25 to 27 St George Street is currently an office building at lower levels with two storeys of private residential accommodation on floors 6 and 7.

17 Old Park Lane is a wholly commercial building of office accommodation varying in height between ground plus 8 storeys (of offices) and 4 storeys in the lower section.

The proposals would see a sustainable, wellbeing-led refurbishment of 25 to 27 St George Street to deliver a building which provides high-quality office accommodation.

As above, 25-27 St George Street is currently a mixed-use office with five private flats on the top two floors. In order to improve the building’s sustainability and operational efficiency, the accommodation provided by these flats would be reprovided at 17 Old Park Lane.

Consequently, there would be no loss of residential homes in Mayfair. At the same time, OPLM’s proposals for 17 Old Park Lane include improvements to the operational efficiency of the existing building, new greening and six to nine new homes provided at upper levels, in a two-storey extension

The purpose of this website is to seek your feedback on our proposals prior to submitting a planning application to Westminster City Council.

Our consultation is now closed.

We would like to thank everyone who has provided their feedback on the proposals. We will review the feedback ahead of submitting the planning application to Westminster City Council.

The Sites

25-27 St George Street

 

The existing building sits between St George Street and Mason’s Arms Mews.  The building has a single-storey basement, ground and five floors of office accommodation and two storeys of private residential homes.

The building currently suffers from several issues, including:

  • Inefficient office floorplates with limited natural light and no external space which fails to meet the needs of modern office occupiers
  • Poor operational sustainability credentials
  • Two cores to serve the two different uses within the building, making the floors even less efficient
  • Limited street presence on St George Street with a poor arrival experience for office workers
  • Limited urban greening and planting

 

 

17 Old Park Lane

 

17 Old Park Lane sits on the corner of Old Park Lane and Brick Street in southwest Mayfair.

The existing building is wholly commercial at present, providing office accommodation and consists of a taller element on the corner with Brick Street of Ground plus 8 storeys and a large, redundant plant enclosure above the office space. The building steps down to Ground plus four storeys and another level of plant enclosure on Brick Street.

The current building suffers from a number of issues including:

  • Redundant levels which were originally designed to accommodate plant equipment at the time
  • No cycle parking for workers , and limited showers, lockers and changing facilities
  • A need for investment to improve operational efficiency of the building
  • A poor arrival experience for workers in the building
  • An unattractive external emergency stair on the eastern elevation
  • A defensive, inward-looking character, particularly on its Brick Street elevation
  • An absence of urban greening

 

Our Vision

Rationalisation of the internal layouts to deliver better quality, flexible, wellbeing-led office accommodation

A new double-height and double width entrance and windows to enhance the arrival experience and animate St George Street

A new extension at upper levels and façade for parts of the rear elevation on Mason’s Arms Mews

The delivery of new green terraces to support the wellbeing of office workers

New plant equipment to enhance the operational efficiency of the building

New cycle parking and end of trip facilities (such as showers) in the basement to support sustainable modes of travel
