Quadrant 3 W1
Major historic restoration programme and cutting-edge energy centre unlock development potential
The 94-year-old Regent Palace Hotel is being redeveloped as part of the Crown Estate's plans to create a new identity for Regent Street.
The redevelopment of the former Regent Palace Hotel as part of the Crown Estate's plan for Regent Street. The creation of contemporary office space at the upper floors, with retail and restaurant space at ground and basement to the right of residential units.
The hotel was a Grade II listed building, largely because of the quality of its art deco interiors. Half of the historic facades have been retained, while four glamorous 1930s entertainment venues are being completely restored.
A high-tech energy centre to service the wider Regent Street Quadrant block has been installed in the basement and is powered by a hydrogen fuel cell - turning natural gas into hydrogen, making it a highly environmentally-friendly option.
A new pedestrianised arcade, named Glasshouse Walk, links the south-west end of Denman Street to Glasshouse Street, bringing new vibrancy to this part of Piccadilly.
“They are in a class of their own.”
David Shaw, The Crown Estate
