5 Strand gets planning

July 17th, 2017

5 Strand has received a Resolution to Grant Planning Permission on Tuesday 11th July 2017, by Westminster City Council.


Asset Management firm BlackRock appointed Alchemi Group in November 2015 as the Development Manager to explore opportunities through a private architectural competition that MNP co-managed.  Adjaye Associates were chosen to design a significant mixed-use building of architectural merit overlooking Trafalgar Square and its conservation area.  The consented project has added 49,315 sq ft of additional NSA equating to 11 stories and 158,000 sq ft of total NSA. This unique development comprises ground floor retail and restaurant spaces, 60,000 sq ft of Grade A flexible office space and 26 exclusive residential apartments on the upper floors.


MNP produced structural solutions to achieve the highly aesthetic design whilst negotating complex approvals to build over Charing Cross Station and tube tunnels.
