The development includes a sustainable balance of uses like offices, retail, residential and a community space / library alongside an extensive new public realm. It also responds to the adjoining areas of historic, civic and political significance, including Grosvenor Gardens and the Royal Parks and Westminster Cathedral Conservation Areas.
