Westminster Place Approved

The latest revised plans for York House, an office redevelopment overlooking Lambeth Palace Road and opposite the under construction, One Westminster Bridge, have been approved by the local council.

Renamed Westminster Place to cash in on the proximity it has to Westminster just over the River Thames, the scheme is being developed by Delancey who are acting in a joint venture Invista Real Estate.

It will be 16 floors above ground with two basement levels and offer floor-plates of approximately 2,000 square metres each and total 32,000 square metres.

It's topped by a large private sky-garden that will occupy space of most of the roof and offer open space for the projects tenants.

Westminster Place has been designed by Sheppard Robson. It's similar in a sense to the John Seifert designed 1 Kemble Street, a circular building located off Kingsway that rises from Y shaped columns ringing the base. Adding a modern break from the past the projecting grid-work of white concrete in front of the glass cladding of 1 Kemble Street has been rejected here diamondesque tinted cladding that changes shade as it wraps around the building.

Local council, Lambeth, have been championing development around this small area connecting to the roundabout south of Westminster Bridge for some time now that has also seen an Apart Hotel built as well as a line of buildings planned along the Elizabeth House site that runs off it.
