ilona rose house

Just a short walk from Tottenham Court Road Station, Ilona Rose House will deliver outstanding new shops and restaurants, along with high-quality office space for the creative industries.

 

The site offers a once in a generation opportunity to create modern useable spaces. We are working with major players in the creative industries to deliver bespoke technical spaces and studios. The purpose-built accommodation will anchor the film and creative industries in Soho for many years to come.

 

Our vision is to create a stylish new hub for workers, visitors and residents. The site will be complimented by rooftop gardens, public art and transformed streetscape along Manette Street and through to a new walkway into Greek Street.

 

Meanwhile on the Soho side of the site, 14 Greek Street, a Grade II listed building near the House of St Barnabas, will be protected and fully restored.

 

In May 2016, Westminster City Council approved the proposals for the development of 111-119 Charing Cross Road, including the regeneration of the Greek Street frontage.

 

The project is due to start on-site in March 2017. Cantillon has been appointed as the demolition and enabling works contractor and will be setting up the site office from 6 March 2017. Hoardings and strip out works will then take place ahead of the main demolition.

 

Soho Estates is a long-standing and well-respected local business with experience of developing and restoring properties across Soho and London. Soho Estates is working with an experienced professional team to develop the site, including award-winning architectural practices, MATT Architecture and SODA.

We are keen to engage with local residents and businesses throughout the demolition and construction process and will be providing regular updates on our Works page.

The site faces Charing Cross Road, in the Tottenham Court Road Opportunity Area, which has been established to encourage regeneration and growth. This area has excellent public transport links and is currently undergoing significant changes with the new Tottenham Court Road Crossrail station under construction and scheduled to open in 2018. It is predicted that Tottenham Court Road will have more passenger movements each year than Heathrow airport, with 100,000 people alighting daily. Significant regeneration must therefore take place to help realise the full potential of this area.

 

Our vision is to create a new hub of uses for the increasing number of workers, visitors and residents in the area. The site will deliver both outstanding office and commercial space while protecting and restoring the historic elements of the site. It will reflect Charing Cross Road’s position in the Opportunity Area as well as old Soho by complementing the surrounding buildings, including the House of St Barnabas and its Chapel.

 

The streetscape will be transformed into an oasis along Manette Street and through a new walkway into Greek Street. New shops and restaurants will line the walkway as pedestrians move from the bustling Charing Cross Road into a more relaxed Soho. There will be new purpose-built office space on the lower, ground and upper levels. A series of garden terraces stepped over a number of the upper floors will create new views over Soho.

 

14 Greek Street, which is Grade II listed, will be fully restored and act as a stand-alone building at the entrance to scheme.

Professional Development Team

Soho Estates began as a collection of historic buildings acquired from the 1970s to the 1990s by Paul Raymond. His Raymond Revuebar opened in Walker’s Court in 1958 and he chose to invest the profits from his entertainment and publishing ventures in properties within five minutes’ walk of where he was based. Today, the estate covers large parts of Soho’s 87 acres and its tenants reflect the vibrant mix found in Soho, including restaurants, bars and clubs, hotels, independent retailers and offices. The strategy of the business is to enhance and add value to existing stock through careful restoration and refurbishment, and, where possible, redevelopment in-keeping with the area.
