One Hanover Street, W1 London, UK
Home to Apple’s flagship European store, this development is part of the Crown Estate’s long-term vision for Regent Street, delivering quality to residents, shoppers and businesses alike. The development is situated across two conservation areas within the City of Westminster. Its Grade II listed façades and prominent cupola have been retained, together with part of the return elevations to both Hanover and Princes Streets.
The lower ground, ground and first floors are predominantly retail use, with office accommodation on the five floors above, structured around a central atrium and entered from a striking reception area on Hanover Street. The design of the development eliminated a collection of smaller buildings, providing vast and largely column-clear floorplates in a location which rarely offers this.
The building and its refurbishment of 220 windows, provides extensive natural daylight. The mixed-use development provides up to 10,000m² of retail space, 10-15,000m² of office space and two residential apartment buildings.
The office element boasts one of the largest floorplates in the West End (2,400m²). The redevelopment involved the rationalisation of 11 buildings into three larger structures, whilst retaining the Edwardian façade.
