New Scotland Yard Headquarters Site mixed-use development
Plans have been approved for the 268-home mixed-use redevelopment of the site of Metropolitan Police’s New Scotland Yard Headquarters in London.
Developer BL Development Ud, which is owned by the Abu Dhabi Financial Group, has gained permission to tear down three existing buildings of seven, nine and 21 storeys on the 1.78-acre triangular site just south of St James’s Park in Westminster, reports www.constructionenquirer.com.
The Abu Dhabi Financial Group bought the building for £370m in December 2014, and then appointed Northacre, in which it is a major shareholder, as development manager in June last year.
It will now clear the way to build six residential-led buildings ranging from 14 to 20 storeys. The plans designed by Squire & Partners deliver 246 super prime apartments.
Niccolo Barattieri di san Pietro, CEO of Northacre, said: “Ten Broadway will be a landmark mixed-use scheme of one million square feet, nestled between the historic attractions of Parliament and Buckingham Palace.”
The whole development is carved broadly into two halves, and will sit on two four-storey “podiums” housing retail units on the ground and three storeys of office space, with the resi buildings coming in three-a-piece on top.
Work on the development is expected to start in 2016 and complete in 2021.
Northacre recently appointed Balfour Beatty to deliver another super prime scheme next to Buckingham Place.

Scotland Yard Design Competition
AHMM selected to redesign London’s new police headquarters. They beat four others, namely Foster and Partners, Allies and Morrison, Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands and Keith Williams Architects. Key design is clearly aimed at transparency and engaging with the public, a positive move for an arm of the establishment in a mature democracy. Thankfully the famous revolving sign, Eternal Flame and Roll of Honour will all be incorporated – a good blend of tradition and innovation.
AHMM is an international architecture practice based in the UK with experience of working on a number of major buildings in the UK and abroad. They are currently undertaking a masterplan and redevelopment of the BBC television centre in White City and were recently announced as the architect for the new Google headquarters at King’s Cross. AHMM worked with specialist architects Haverstock to advise on the proposals.
The high-rise Metropolitan Police Headquarters building opened in the 1960s, with an iconic revolving triangular sign.
