The vision is to transform 7-9 Piccadilly into a sustainable landmark building that aligns with the City Council’s ambition to reshape Piccadilly Gardens, befitting of its prominent location. This will also include enhancing the frontage onto Piccadilly Gardens including the provision of a roof terrace providing panoramic views of the square and surrounding area.
The rear of the building addresses Back Piccadilly and presents a unique opportunity to breathe new life into this part of the City. The proposed development will deliver a new access into the proposed office accommodation, providing visual improvements and increased security through passive surveillance. The introduction of high quality landscaping and shared surfaces sets out a commitment to urban renewal through the greening of laneways and the creation of a new, reimagined link between Piccadilly Gardens and the Northern Quarter.
Wellness and sustainability are at the heart of the vision for 7-9 Piccadilly and the proposed development seeks to create a holistic working environment that promotes wellness via biophilic designs, amenities, access to outdoor space in the city and within walking distance of key public transport links.
The redevelopment of 7-9 Piccadilly will see the building embraced as an active part of the fabric of the city, creating 270 employment opportunities for the city and contributing to the emerging Piccadilly Gardens regeneration proposals, as well as complimenting the adjacent development proposals within the vicinity of the building.
