Cundy Street Quarter

Our plans

Our proposals are for an inclusive new neighbourhood, doubling the number of affordable homes, and a major investment in better public and community spaces which are shared and open to everyone.  

Our commitments:

  • Ongoing, open dialogue with the local community
  • More onsite affordable, social rented, private and senior living homes.
  • High-quality design that complements the historic character of the area
  • Wider variety of retail and food & drink offerings
  • Welcoming and open public spaces with increased greening and landscaping
  • Pedestrian-friendly routes to connect with the wider neighbourhood
  • A sensitive management and servicing approach that responds to local needs

Masterplan development

The architects at DSDHA and the design and urban landscape team at Todd Longstaffe-Gowan have developed proposals that respond sensitively to each of the neighbouring areas and consultation feedback, whilst improving the use of the site and opening new pedestrian routes.

Emerging designs

Indicative floor plan, June 2019

1 A new village centre

The new pedestrianised route through the village centre would be lined with shops and cafes, providing a meeting place for local people.

2 Orange Square

A new entrance from Orange Square opens up towards the village centre, providing a new and inviting pedestrian route. A lush urban garden will replace the Coleshill car park.

3 Ebury Square Gardens

The townscape of Ebury Square is framed by taller buildings, providing the potential for a new landmark building facing Ebury Square. This building will include homes at upper levels with retail spaces animating the street and Square.

4 Pimlico Road & Avery Farm Row

The new buildings along Pimlico Road have been sensitively designed to ensure the height rises away from the adjacent Grade II listed Coleshill buildings. A landmark building is proposed on the corner of Pimlico Road and Ebury Square Gardens to signify the transition between Pimlico and Belgravia.

5 Ebury Street & Residential Gardens

A mansion building design is being proposed on the corner of Ebury Street and Cundy Street to provide purpose built senior living accommodation. Ebury Street will be improved with wider pavements and new street trees.

An inclusive mixed-use neighbourhood

Our proposals include a mix of facilities and amenities currently lacking elsewhere locally such as new shops, community space, cafes and restaurants, as well as a range of housing types.
