HDR | Andrew Reid’s Commercial team is extremely pleased to be working with the construction group Skanska on the £141 million K1 Knightsbridge scheme, on behalf of The Olayan Group.
Situated at the gateway of London’s most prestigious shopping district, the K1 Knightsbridge redevelopment will see the buildings fully occupied for the first time in years. The mixed-use space is to include 340,000 sq ft of retail, commercial and residential spaces. High-end retail units will stand at street-level, new offices on Hooper’s Court will provide workspace for 1,000 people, and there will be a rooftop restaurant with stunning panoramic views. The luxury continues with a private rooftop terrace surrounded by 35 premium apartments, providing a real oasis away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Fletcher Priest Architects has attributed great importance to preserving the historic facades to uphold the neighbourhood’s architectural character, while also modernising, reinvigorating and celebrating the streetscape.
