Number One Oxford Street

There is a current Planning Application to rebuild the corner of Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Street following completion of the Crossrail works and the related application to the south to create a new pedestrian piazza linking Charing Cross Road with Sutton Row. The application also anticipates the construction of a brand new theatre (replacing the Astoria which was lost to Crossrail demolition), new retail and offices on the ground and upper floors.

This is a unique site which can form a new gateway to Soho and address some of the problems of narrow dark spaces which have been part of the former buildings on the site.

There are unique challenges to build above a huge underground station which requires large ventilation ducts above ground in order to work. Consequently some of the architectural treatments have had to take this into account.

You may want to comment on this application whilst still under consultation as this will be the unique opportunity to improve this large and important site.
