Revised plans for Marble Arch Tower development granted planning permission

Westminster Council has granted planning permission to developer Almacantar to revise its plans for the Marble Arch Tower, designed by Rafael Viñoly Architects. Situated on the corner of Oxford Street and Edgware Road, the high-rise tower will replace a 22-storey office block.

 

Almacantar is the developer behind the Centrepoint revamp at the opposite end of Oxford Street.

 

The new design will see two towers constructed – one 18-storeys tall and the other 7-storeys. The taller tower will house apartments and retail space, whilst the smaller tower will house commercial space and retail space on the ground and first floor.

 

Since obtaining approval from Westminster to develop the site in June 2014, the Almacantar has since had to submit revised plans to place a greater emphasis on office space. The revised plans will now accommodate 2000 sq ft of office space in the taller tower, slightly reducing the number of flats in the building, whilst increasing the number of storeys from an approved 17 to 18.

 

Retail space totalling 18,000 square feet and an Odeon cinema will be installed in the basement, ground floor and first floor levels.

 

A disused petrol station will also be reinstated which will become the first new petrol station on London for over 10 years.

 

Work is expected to start sometime in 2015 and complete three years later in 2018.
