Background:

Developer Alchemi Group are converting this substantial 1980’s office building at 55 Victoria Street to luxury apartments – vertically extending the building by up to 6 additional storeys, while the retail units remain occupied on the ground floor.


Located directly opposite New Scotland Yard, this 57,000 sq ft building previously housed offices of the Secretary of State for Transport, above the NatWest bank at street level. Following conversion, the area will benefit from 74,000 sq ft of prime residential apartments.


The project poses many significant engineering challenges. These include reconfiguration of the stability system, load increase justification, extensions with complex interface issues and a very exciting new façade designed by Stiff and Trevillion Architects.


The project was constructed by main contractor John Sisk & Son.


Status:
Completed.
