Union Street, Southwark

Firstplan obtained consent for a mixed-use development on this prominent site in Southwark, incorporating the refurbishment and extension of an existing building and an infill redevelopment to create new office space and a penthouse flat. The design process required careful and extensive consideration due to the building’s sensitive location within a Conservation Area, immediately adjacent to a Grade II listed building, and opposite a late-night music and food and drink venue.

Firstplan worked closely with the project architects developing the design, and led a pre-application advice process with the Council which helped facilitate a first-time success at full planning application stage. We negotiated closely with the Council regarding the layout and design of the proposals, and secured permission for this marquee building.
