John McAslan + Partners' proposed scheme for the 32-storey Millbank Tower was granted planning approval at committee on Tuesday 12 April 2016. The proposal will comprehensively refurbish and enhance the Grade II listed building, securing its long term future as an important heritage asset. Comprising 207 apartments, predominantly one and two bedroom residential units, but providing some family-sized apartments, the project also includes a 150-bedroom hotel, as well as public realm, public gardens and a private landscaped garden for residents to the rear of the site.
Close to Tate Britain, the scheme will also support Westminster Council's Strategic Cultural Area designation, with the addition of a new cultural facility located at the southern end of the podium.
The project has been developed through successful dialogue with statutory authorities and the local community. The urban context for neighbouring residents will be significantly improved, removing the existing multi-storey car park which will be replaced with new landscaped gardens.
A Westminster council spokesman said the scheme would "bring great value to the local community, with payment for highway works, public art and a new cultural space".
