40 Beak Street

We secured planning permission in 2016 for the redevelopment of a building of merit within the Soho Conservation Area and replacement with a larger building containing a restaurant at basement and ground floor with offices on the 1st – 4th floors. We successfully negotiated a reduced affordable payment in lieu for the client.


We secured planning permission and listed building consent for the new Annabel’s Club on Berkeley Square, developing a heritage statement to support our proposal. The scheme included extensive subterranean excavation and a number of alterations to this listed building. We also secured planning permission for a canopy over the rear terrace.

The Langham Hotel

We provided advice and prepared a Heritage Statement for the proposed internal and external works to the Langham Spa, within this Grade II listed hotel. The scheme seeks the conversion of the existing spa facility at ground floor to a bar, with rearrangement of the spa at basement level.

Mandeville Hotel

Members of our planning team secured planning permission for an extension to the Annex Building of the Mandeville Hotel, adding 32 rooms. Despite officer concerns about the extent and scale of the extensions we secured approval at planning committee.


Creative Places was instructed by MedCity (the organisation set up to promote Life Sciences in London and the greater South East) to undertake a major demand study for healthcare R&D commercial real estate across Greater London. 

The study assessed existing and expected supply and undertook a review of demand through direct contact with almost 100 organisations in the sector.

The study concluded that demand was outstripping supply and that there was an acute need for real estate to be delivered in specific locations across London to meet occupier need.

Park Crescent East

Members of our planning team secured planning permission and listed building consent for the conversion of this prestigious Grade I listed terrace to luxury apartments including substantial demolition and alterations to the properties.

The Ivy

Members of the planning team secured planning permission for the new Ivy Club including extensions and the creation of a smoking terrace in this tight urban environment. A lateral approach resolved a land use issue in respect of the projection of an A1 unit on the ground floor, which now serves both as the club entrance and a florist.

Westbourne Terrace

We prepared an “Of Significance Statement” to assess the relative significance or heritage value of the property. This accompanies a Listed Building Consent application for the internal refurbishment works proposed to floors including the installation of a new stair between level three and four. The plans were fully approved.


Creative Places has been assisting the London Borough of Sutton with its appraisals of the proposed London Cancer Hub - involving engagement with a range of businesses involved with oncology related R&D.

The London Cancer Hub is built upon the foundations of the excellent work undertaken by the Institute of Cancer Research and the Royal Marsden Hospital, who are looking to grow their activity and create an ecosystem strong in clinical activity, research and commercial R&D.

Cell Therapy Catapult

Creative Places acted for the Cell Therapy Catapult in finding its London home at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital. Understanding the needs of research intensive businesses and how location can affect opportunities for collaboration with, not just the research base, but also R&D intensive businesses enabled the team to identify a shortlist of potential locations which were capable of delivering the right type of space in places that would best fit the project brief.

Creative Places negotiated commercial terms for the selected shortlist and met with senior personnel at the research institutions associated with each in order to present the Catapult delivery team with clear choices backed by objective information relevant to, not just property, but also productivity and economic impact.


We are undertaking the project management and contract administration of the refurbishment and extension of several buildings within the school’s confined Sloane Square site to improve student experience. This includes the incorporation of a learning centre below a street level landscaped playground. We have set out a  strategic programme and managed the team to meet key project milestones and phasing options, due to the site being very constrained.


We have been appointed to provide project management services for a new £16 million building at their campus at Swiss Cottage in North London. The project is targeted to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating and is due for completion in Summer 2018.


We have project managed and acted as contract administrators as part of a £9 million strategic masterplan and a series of refurbishment and new build projects within the Grade II listed building.


10 Stratford Place is an 18th Century Grade II Listed Building and one of a group of Georgian townhouses forming Stratford Place, a cul-de-sac on the north side of Oxford Street.

We secured planning permission and listed building consent for various internal and external alterations to this Grade II listed building. These include alterations to the roof to provide a new terrace. Bidwells are project managing the construction and redevelopment, as well as having advised on the planning and heritage elements.
