The ambition for the development of the former Central St Martins site is to transform this significant location within Camden’s Holborn Vision into a vibrant neighbourhood with a hotel at its heart.
The scope of the project includes the refurbishment of the historic Grade II* Listed former School of Arts and Crafts, extensions to the existing 1960s building as well as creation of new massing and basement levels.
The proposal is to create a rich mixture of uses on the site, which includes a new hotel, large conference venue, bars and restaurants, a new cultural anchor and provision of affordable housing.
There is a wonderful opportunity to build upon the rich character of the site and make significant improvements to the townscape and public realm.
This will include an exciting new public space and a reinstated a historic route across the site which will introduce activity across the base of the development.
