Dominvs Group has submitted a detailed planning application for Citicape House (61-65 Holborn Viaduct, London) with the potential for circa 296,000 square feet (GEA) of floor space at a total delivery cost of up to £250 million.
This application represents a unique opportunity for Dominvs Group to enhance and revitalise a prominent site within the City and to deliver a genuinely iconic building at the entrance to the new Culture Mile.
The site will establish a recognisable gateway to the City of London’s ambitious initiative which aims to redefine the City as a world-class cultural destination, including the new Museum of London.
Citicape House will encompass a 382-key hotel, a publicly accessible viewing gallery with separate entrance, a rooftop restaurant and bar, and SME purposed workspace with associated public realm improvements.
The proposals were designed by award-winning architecture practice, Sheppard Robson.
“Dominvs Group is incredibly proud of our proposals for 61-65 Holborn Viaduct which aim to play a major role in the regeneration of the Smithfield area,” says Jay Ahluwalia, Dominvs Group Director. “With the City of London’s vision for the area and the creation of the Culture Mile, we feel this project will support and enhance the overall ambition for this exciting, new cultural destination as the creative heart of the Square Mile.
“Coming after our successful opening of The Dixon at Tower Bridge and the recent breaking of ground at Creed Court, St Pauls we hope our proposals demonstrate our ongoing commitment to providing developments of the highest quality in Central London. We also believe the building’s proposed Living Green Wall, the largest in Europe, could be an exciting, innovative and celebrated addition to London for years to come.”
