Thorstone have purchased this prominent site on Kensal Road in North Kensington. The area has excellent transport facilities and is seeing significant growth as well–known occupiers are attracted by its cosmopolitan and vibrant atmosphere. Recent local commercial occupiers include Stella McCartney, Tom Dixon Designs and Innocent Drinks.
Thorstone is in negotiation with Kensington and Chelsea with a proposal to replace the existing buildings, a former working laundry and houses, with a new state of the art mixed–use scheme. This will provide approximately 100,000 square feet of mixed–use accommodation to include 220 student rooms, a new stand–alone 4000 square foot retail/showroom unit, together with 25,000 square feet of commercial space to cater for the media and creative industries who are colonising this trendy enclave of Kensington just north of the world–famous Portobello Road and Ladbroke Grove.
