LDS on King Street regen

Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands are to rework King Street Developments’ planned regeneration, including the Town Hall extension.

Previous plans from the Helical Bar & Grainger JV, designed by Sheppard Robson, were approved by LB Hammersmith & Fulham, but were withdrawn from consideration by the Mayor of London after it became clear there was no possibility of approval amid concerns over the proposed height of two of the residential blocks and the resulting impact on views from across the river.

The new plans, the council have said, will have a “cast iron guarantee” of an eight storey height limit, whereas previous plans reached up to 15 storeys.

Now it is understood that Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands have been retained to produce new designs. Reports suggest consultation may open early in 2013.

LDS have been involved in the area concerned. The Hammersmith based practice co-ordinated a London Festival of Architecture event which provided some different perspectives on regenerating the area, and a recent event focussed on digging the A4 under central Hammersmith.
