Bond Street East – Hanover Square Over Station Development

Great Portland Estates have now produced detailed drawings of how they are proposing to redevelop the site which was formerly 18 and 19 Hanover Square following completion of the Crossrail works. They are proposing to use the opportunity to redevelop not only that side but also 1a Tenterden Street and much of the frontage to New Bond Street to provide a comprehensive redevelopment incorporating a new public space, new and better retail outlets to improve the retail offering on New Bond Street and office accommodation above the new station itself.

The work will involve the complete refurbishment of the listed building at 20 Hanover Square and access will be provided from the rear of the building into the new public space.

Unlike the work being undertaken by Crossrail this development will be subject to the normal planning process upon which full consultation will take place. Great Portland Estates are putting on an exhibition and consultation for the scheme prior to the formal application for planning.

The exhibition is being held at Medici Court, 67/69 New Bond Street and the dates and times are listed below:

Today (Jan 20th) 2pm – 6pm
Tomorrow (Jan 21st) 5pm – 8pm
Saturday (Jan 22nd) 9am – 12pm

This is an opportunity for a major redevelopment to take place and the upgrade of a site the size of which rarely becomes available in the West End. It will be a once in a life time opportunity and it is important that the views of the local community are heard. I would therefore encourage you to go to the Exhibition and to review the boards which are also accessible via the link below, so you can have your say at this stage of the consultation.
