Paddington Place by the Renzo Piano Building Workshop
Renzo Piano has just released plans for the second venture with the The Sellar Property Group in London.
Paddington Place, a mixed use complex set to sit adjacent to Paddington Station, has been launched by Sellar in collaboration with the Great Western Developments Ltd, who submitted this week a planning application for the redevelopment of a former Royal Mail sorting office that will be part of the complex.The plan involves 1.3 acres of public realm, a centrepiece 254m tower, 330 new homes and office space for several businesses. The plans also include a new and enlarged ticket hall and step-free access to the Bakerloo Line platforms and enhanced connections between the station’s other lines.
The team aims to transform the area around Paddington Station with this project by improving connectivity, streamlining circulation and integrating a large piazza, and street-level café and restaurant scene that will give new life to the place.
