Proposals for the redevelopment of Lancer Square on Kensington Church Street gained planning consent last night at a meeting of RBKC’s planning committee. The redevelopment plans for Lancer Square will create 13,600 sq.m. of prime residential and retail space a short distance from Kensington High Street.
The development plans comprise four blocks ranging from four to seven storeys and include 51 private and affordable residential apartments (with a mix of 1-4 bedrooms), a new office building with shops and cafés at ground level and a new landscaped public courtyard.
The landowners, Malaysian property investors Chesington Investments, appointed CIT Group as development managers for the project and Squire and Partners as the project’s architects.
George Kyriacou, Managing Director Development for CIT said:
“The decision of RBKC’s planning committee to approve this scheme and enable the redevelopment of this prime Kensington site is a great endorsement of the quality of our plans. CIT have spent over a year working closely with the land owners, architects, planners and neighbours to deliver a scheme of the highest design standard and with the right balance of high end residential accommodation and retail space.”
