'Boutique' residential scheme gets go-ahead at former Royal Mail sorting office
A former Royal Mail sorting office in London’s Temple Fortune is set to become home to a new multi-million pound residential offering.
‘Luxury’ developer Godfrey London has gained planning consent to create four new apartments at its £15m development on St George’s Road.
Replacing the disused red-brick office building, the new headquarters building is designed by architectural firm TDO Architects.
The developer has taken the first floor of the mixed-use building for its new London headquarters, with the ground floor offering another 4,000 sq ft of office space available to let.
The planning consent allows for the top floor of the building to be converted into four apartments, consisting of three two bedroom apartments and a one bedroom apartment.
Paul Godfrey, founding director and CEO of Godfrey London, commented: “Buyer trends in the Prime London marketplace have been transformed dramatically due to the challenges of Brexit and COVID-19.
“Given how drastically we have had to change the way we live and work there will be a lasting influence on what buyers are looking for from a new home. Developments in the future will need to be energy-efficient, sustainable, mixed-use, flexible and well-connected places that promote health and wellbeing to meet buyers’ needs.
“We want to focus on quality and to concentrate on undertaking one or two projects so that we can completely control the build, specification and delivery of the units. Where we previously did a large collection of smaller projects, we want to do one or two medium-sized schemes and have total control of the delivery process.”
