Cardinal Place, SW1
Some developments just feel right from day one. Since opening in January 2006, Cardinal Place has become one of the most recognisable sights in Victoria, the dramatic sweep of its glass façade narrowing to a single point at the corner of Victoria Street and Bressenden Place.
The estate includes three main buildings – 16 Palace Street and 80 and 100 Victoria Street – linked by attractive public gardens and thoroughfares. 570,000 sq. ft. of offices have caught the interest of blue-chip businesses from sectors rarely seen in Victoria before. Meanwhile, 24 retail and restaurant brands occupy the ground floor, including a Marks & Spencer anchor store. Above it, you'll find a Roof Garden offering an oasis of tranquillity.
The final part of the mix is The View – a complex of 124 residential apartments with all-glass walls opening onto broad balconies. It's living testimony to our belief that residential, retail, commercial and cultural interests can not only live harmoniously within the same development, but all mutually benefit from the juxtaposition.
Cardinal Place also bears out our broader development philosophy, which is to think imaginatively about entire areas, rather than single buildings in isolation. Its success is already having a ripple effect across our Victoria portfolio, attracting new businesses and retail footfall to the area, and changing the way people think about this part of London.
