Project Details

The development at the northern end of The Knightsbridge Estate is a mixed-use scheme of 340,000sqft (31,600sqm). The project combined commercial, retail, and residential space in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

Designed by Fletcher Priest Architects, the scheme is a comprehensive redevelopment of a large site bordered by Brompton Road and Sloane Street in the heart of Knightsbridge.

The development creates a modern, high-end retail and office space, 35 high end residential units and a new rooftop restaurant. It retains the site’s historic facades whilst modernising the building and maintaining the neighbourhood’s architectural character.
