Paddington office plans approved

Plans to construct two new offices as the final part of a major regeneration project in London’s Paddington area have been approved.

Outline planning permission for the offices, one of 10 and one of 13 storeys, on the Paddington Central site has been granted by Westminster City Council.

The buildings, which would be constructed adjacent to the site’s Novotel Hotel, are intended to provide 41,797 sq m of office space. Fountains, trees and seating will be built in a new garden square between th two buildings.

Councillor Alastair Moss, the chairman of the council’s planning and city development committee, said: “Eventually this area should create in the region of 30,000 jobs and we hope that the completion of the refurbishment of Paddington will continue to appeal to major investors.”

Paddington has been boosted by two major redevelopment schemes in the area, with the Padding Central scheme covering 160,000 sq m, while the Paddington Basin development has also helped transform the area.
