Carter Jonas’s London Planning team has obtained a unanimous approval at the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham’s Planning Committee for a large scale office extension to Harrods’ Headquarters in Hammersmith.
Harrods’ Headquarters is located at 68-72 Hammersmith Road and is the administrative heart of the world-famous Harrods brand, supporting its operations across the company and the Knightsbridge store.
Designed by award-winning architects Make, the extension is over 30 metres tall and will provide the client with an extra 6000sqm of office floorspace, allowing Harrods to remain at the site and to grow its business. The proposals include a new green trellis to the front and rear that transforms the building’s frontage and offers sustainability benefits.
On the way to success, the Planning team navigated a number of site constraints including its close proximity to a number of conservation areas and residential properties immediately to the rear. The application was GLA referable and through careful negotiation prior to determination, the Stage 2 report concluded the GLA is content to allow the Council to determine the case itself.
