The Gallery | Paddington tower in for planning

Developer Sellar has released new images of its proposed Renzo Piano designed tower in west London.

Sellar and partner Great Western Developments formally submitted a planning application for Paddington Place.

The scheme would involve the redevelopment of a former Royal Mail sorting office to provide 9,300m2 of office space as well as retail and leisure room.

A crystal light-reflecting tower will include a sky garden and restaurant, and the overhaul of the area will include creation of a piazza and changes to public space surrounding Paddington Station.

Sellar Property Group chairman Irvine Sellar said: “This exciting transformational development will enhance this important part of central London.

“Paddington’s transport interchange will be fit for purpose for the 21st century and the wider mixed-use development and public space will enhance the way residents, visitors, businesses and their people live work and play, and will make a major contribution in revitalising this district.”
