Luxborough Street development

The council is progressing with a consultation on a proposed new development on Luxborough Street W1U 5BF. This site of approximately 0.069 ha (0.17 acres), is a short walk from Baker Street station and situated within landscaped grounds attached to Luxborough Towers.

In 2012, the Luxborough Street development site was identified as the new location of the permanent Marylebone Library. The proposed scheme received planning permission in 2014. As the library is now being relocated to Seymour Leisure Centre, the Luxborough Street site is no longer required for this purpose. This decision has released the street site for an alternative residential development opportunity, helping Westminster City Council to meet its target of 1,850 new affordable homes by 2023 as set out in its City for All vision.

In August 2018, the council undertook a pre-engagement survey in order to understand residents’ views on 2 development options:

  1. 100% residential development.
  2. Ground floor community use with residential above.

Engagement

Two exhibition events were held on 27 October and 31 October 2018 to provide an opportunity for the public and key stakeholders to see the initial design proposals for the Luxborough Street development and talk with members of the project team and architects.

If you were unable to attend the events, there is another opportunity to view the exhibition boards and provide feedback on the proposals online.

You may also email your comments or any queries you may have to luxboroughdevelopment@westminster.gov.uk. We ask that you do so by 9 November 2018.

The project team will review all feedback along with comments from the planning officers and will return with an updated design by the end of January, if not before.
