Westminster City Council in London has launched a contract notice seeking a development partner to redevelop Huguenot House.

A private partner will build, finance and deliver a commercial-led solution to replace the existing building, with an aim to provide “long-term physical, economic and social sustainability” for residents and the wider community.

It was decided in 2021 to replace the existing building, and in May this year a ‘best value consultation’ was launched to consider options for the site.

That document stated: “The scheme will deliver a significantly improved public realm through activation of public areas at street level, improved sustainable housing and commercial facilities within a leisure based envelope.”

It added that the scheme would also include “full reprovision of all the existing affordable housing on site and additional new affordable and private homes”.

Interested parties have until 2 January 2024 to respond to the tender, which can be found here. The project is valued at £160m.
