Cain International submitted a full planning application and application for listed building consent to Westminster City Council for the restoration and refurbishment of 17-22 South Audley Street, currently occupied by Thomas Goode, 5th December 2018.
Following consultation with the Victorian Society, Historic England and Westminster City Council (WCC), the application has been revised to address stakeholder feedback. The revisions were submitted for WCC’s consideration 20th June 2019. The changes have been captured on an updated version of the presentation boards utilised for the public exhibition held 9th-10th July 2018 and can be downloaded here.
The Grade II* listed building is located on the east side of South Audley Street, between Chapel Place and South Street, and bounded to the east with Mount Street Gardens.
Thomas Goode has decided to leave 17-22 South Audley Street, requiring Cain International to secure new suitable use tenants to ensure continuity of use for the building and to prevent decay to the building that would arise from vacancy.
Cain International is seeking alternative appropriate uses for some elements of the building, continuing the retail use but also providing a small restaurant to the lower ground floor, serviced & residential apartments to upper levels and a self-contained dwelling house. There is also an opportunity to improve public realm in Chapel Place and possibly create new access into Mount Street Gardens. The highly esteemed Michael Blair has been appointed as architect, who is committed to carefully refurbishing and enhancing the quality of the listed building.
