1-4 Marble Arch

rights of light marble arch

This redevelopment of a 1930s mixed use building paired with the former Great Cumberland Hotel forms a sensitive backdrop to the Grade 1 listed Marble Arch.

The building was originally designed for housing above shops but was soon converted to offices. The new proposals provide a mix of uses, with retail at the western end of Oxford Street.

The façade will be retained and extended to accommodate an additional office floor. The internal structure will be replaced, allowing for the creation of 5,000 sqm of flexible high-quality office space over seven floors. The structural changes also allow the use of the basement level, further extending the potential retail space


We advised on all aspects of rights of light, daylight, sunlight and overshadowing to support the planning application.
