Story

It’s not often you get asked to move a major supermarket up to first floor level, but as part of a major restructuring of this well-known landmark building in London’s Bayswater, we worked with Waitrose to create a brand new store for them at the upper level, therefore unlocking the existing ground floor frontage for a range of new retailers, thus greatly increasing the rent returns for this valuable site. We are currently working with the residents above the store to similarly maximise the size of their flats by adding a new storey above their existing units.
