80 Charlotte Street is in need of a makeover. We are transforming this set of 1960s, single-use blocks into a contemporary, fully integrated development of office, residential, retail and vibrant public space.

The site is in a conservation area, so our job is to retain and renovate. Across several new facades, we’re using a range of materials, textures, details and proportions to diversify the original buildings in a way that reflects the area’s eclectic character. We’re upgrading the interiors, adding new upper-floor extensions, and building three atria above roof level, flooding the buildings with natural light and ventilating the space below. At street level, we’re engaging passers-by with animated street frontages, better connectivity, open spaces and a new south-facing park.

The new buildings and spaces will celebrate and enhance Fitzrovia, and make its already vibrant community even more so.
