London’s Westminster City Council has granted planning permission to property developer Grosvenor for the creation of a new hub for retailers, designers and makers at Eccleston Place, near Victoria station.

Designed by architect Buckley Gray Yeoman, the scheme involves four buildings being refurbished to provide around 80,000 sq ft for shops from new and emerging designers, co-working space and restaurants.
Anna Farnes, director of London estate development programme at Grosvenor, said: “This is a really exciting opportunity to convert an underused space in South Belgravia into a creative hub for entrepreneurs and independent retailers. This new place – for visitors, workers and residents – will play an important part in contributing to the diverse and creative character of the area.”
