Off street car parking lost due to increasingly higher alternative use values

Off street car parking lost due to increasingly higher alternative use values

Westminster City Council are considering letting the top level (50,000 square feet) of Cavendish Square car park for other uses. A large prime West End underground space for around £30 per square foot (£1.5m per annum). Unfortunately, this is too expensive for the new Marylebone library which is now planned for the Seymour Centre. The council is offering the top level of the three-tier car park to a range of occupiers. Commercial space above ground in the area can cost as much as £100 per square foot. We understand that a number of uses are being looked at, including a gym, restaurant, bar, museum, health centre, or a depot for an online retailer of logistics firm. It has vehicle access, a staircase, a lift, 78 light wells and a central ceiling height of 2.7m.

Marylebone 20 mph Speed Limits - Coming Soon!

Marylebone 20 mph Speed Limits - Coming Soon!
 
A 20-mile per hour speed limit looks set to be introduced to our streets around schools in Westminster shortly. We understand that it is likely to be trailed on our roads between Gloucester Place and the Edgware Road. There is growing interest and use of 20mph (30km/h) speed limits across the UK and in London in particular. In London 25% of all roads are now subject to a 20mph speed limit and within the Central London Congestion Charging Zone (i.e. Inner Ring Road) 50% of all roads are subject to a 20mph limit. Westminster is one of only two central London Boroughs that do not have most roads subject to 20mph limits. 20mph areas/streets can have a positive impact on all road users but particularly the more vulnerable such as children, the elderly, and cyclists.
