Stanta are delighted to have secured another project with client Morgan Sindall in central London at the Bedford Passage development near Goodge Street tube station.
This follows the successful delivery of the Summerdown School in Eastbourne last year and we look forward to working with the team on this project over the coming months.
Bedford Passage is a mixed use development of residential and healthcare properties which is built on the site of the Strand Union workhouse which was used as the inspiration for Charles Dickens 1837 novel ‘Oliver Twist’. In addition, following a severe outbreak of cholera in the summer of 1854, Florence Nightingale was transferred from a hospital in Harley Street to work at the Middlesex Hospital.
The new development provides 53 residential units in the heart of Fitzrovia, approximately 70% (40) of which will be affordable for social rent and for key workers.
The imposing Grade II listed workhouse is retained as part of the overall Bedford Passage development. The new buildings are designed to reveal and enhance the historic character of the listed building with buildings varying in height from three to eight storeys.
The original historic walkway, Bedford Passage, will be reprovided to provide access between Cleveland Street and Charlotte Street and link to Tottenham Mews, for pedestrians and cyclists only.
Stanta works onsite don't begin until next year, but the design is getting ahead of program to ensure we hit the ground running when needed. For more information and progress photos please visit our projects page.
