In this section you will be able to find key information relating to the emerging proposals for the reinstatement of 2-8 Rutland Gate as a single family dwelling.


An overseas family.

62,614 sq ft over 9 levels on a 0.1ha site.

The building is currently vacant and heavily dilapidated, meaning it requires extensive refurbishment prior to occupation. It is also inefficient with very poor energy performance and sustainability credentials.

It is not listed although it is described as a building of merit within the Knightsbridge Conservation Area.

The building has been bought by the new owners as their London family home. It is not a commercial development for sale or rent. Retaining, refurbishing and re-modelling the existing building is believed to be a more certain route for the new owners to deliver their family home and is also a far more sustainable approach than demolition and new build.

The new owners seek to increase the floor to ceiling heights on Level 4 and Level 5 which will mean the building will be 2.8m taller than existing.

No. Voids will be created on Level 1 and Level 2 which when combined with the remodeling of the top of the building will result in an overall reduction in floorspace.

To accommodate plant & machinery on Level -2.

As modifications to an existing single dwelling Westminster City Council’s affordable housing policies do not apply.

Friday 19th February 2021

The application will be decided at a Westminster City Council Planning Committee meeting late Q2 or early Q3 2021.

Q4 2021 at the earliest

Anticipated Q1 2025
