What mix of uses are we proposing?

Shops

There would be a range of shops from well-known retailers on Brook Street, a new flagship store on Davies Street, to ‘micro units’ on South Molton Lane with shorter leases to encourage a changing selection of smaller, new and independent retailers. These new shops would help to anchor existing retail on South Molton Street, Brook Street and Davies Street.

Cafes & restaurants

As well as the Running Horse Pub, there would also be a variety of restaurants and cafes to suit different occasions including a higher-end restaurant in the new hotel and places to eat at a range of price points along Davies Mews with outside seating for the local community, as well as workers and visitors. These eateries would also benefit from external seating on the Mews.

Hotel

40-46 Brook Street, and the stable block behind it on the corner of South Molton Lane and Davies Mews, would be retained and converted into a 31-room hotel. We would seek an independent operator to develop a bespoke concept with a high-quality restaurant and basement bar on Davies Mews. This would add a new dynamic to the area and open a celebrated heritage building to more people. It is estimated that hotel guests would spend around £5 million each year, supporting nearby businesses.

Offices

Above the ground floor, will be new much-needed office space for the West End, increasing the office floorspace currently available in the Triangle by 86%. This will be located in the northern building, with a main entrance on Davies Street, and the southern building with a main entrance on Brook Street.

Homes

In the upper parts of Browns on South Molton Street (numbers 23-25 and 27) we would provide around 11 high quality, affordable homes, catering to a variety of household sizes and contributing towards Westminster City Council’s housing targets. To enable the wider redevelopment to happen, we will also relocate the small number of private homes currently within the South Molton Triangle to nearby Claridge House on Davies Street.
